You more than Likely have a slipped or broken belt ,, (it might have just popped off the tensioner,, ) I'm guessing the humming your hearing is the motor running,, if not,, the motor is fighting to start , and would need replacement

Frigidaire dryer hums when button is pushed in but won't start


ok can u turn the tumbler freely,
if no well there is something stuck in you blower like a sock or something
if the tumbler turns freely
keep the door open and hold the door switch
try pushing the start button
and tuning the tumbler, yes all three at the same time lol you may need a hand
try tuning the tumbler when you hear a hum
if it takes off bad news your start winding on the motor is bad or the capacitor depending on your model
if it does not turn, but the hum continues longer than 1-2 minutes it could be just a belt

Gas dryer won't start.


if the motor hums when you push the start button but wont move you probably have a frozen motor. happens from too much lint packed around the motor and ruins the bearings. if you can access the motor from a front kick panel you can check this. possibly something is jammed in the blower wheel as well. unplug it and check it out

When I push the start button, the unit just buzzes or hums.


You have a broken drum belt. The hum you hear is the motor spinning at high speed.
