Start switch buzzes and won't start the dryer

I had possibly a similar problem with a Kenmore 90 electric dryer. Sometimes pushing the start button would just make a buzzing sound, but the drum would not turn.
I ended up replacing the motor and so far it seems to start up smoother and quicker. In the process of taking it apart, there was a surprising amount of lint piled up in front of the blower intake. This is after the lint screen and not really possible to get to without taking off the lower front panel and then removing the duct to the blower. Perhaps it was dragging on the blower and causing the motor to overheat. Worth looking at first, perhaps.

Kenmore dryer 70 series doesn't always start, sometimes it will just put out a buzzing sound after its been running and trying to restart, will start back up after 20-30 minutes.

Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem.

Kenmore gas dryer buzzes but does not run

sounds like the start windings in the motor have gone bad. The only way to fix this is to replace the motor.

You have a bad motor. You can remove and verify probably bad bearings and burnt start winding.
