sometimes as a timer gets older the timer motor will get a little loud. timer motors run even when the door is open. if the timer advances to off and everything works fine you don't need to worry about it.

Yes door safety switch may be faulty or stuck.
Normal for them to go out over time & usage. Switch is usually $5.00 to $20.00 labor well you can guess as usual more than it should.
Another possible problem could be wire shorted. But that would be a rare occurrence.

SOURCE: dryer door
The dryer door catch and latch assy is worn and needs to be replaced.
See this link to see which of them matches your dryer: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/Dryer-Parts/Door-Latch-Kits/index.aspx
Any local appliance parts supply center will have this part in stock. It is howe3ver best that you take your "complete model number" with you when you go to get the replacement part. They are under $3.00 in
Use a knife blade to unlock the opposing plastic retaining tabs on the old part for removal. Make sure you change both pieces. The one in the chassis and the one in the door.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Simple repair. If you gonna remove the front to do the repair I suggest you lift up on the panel to keep from damaging the clips that hold the bottom secure
