Dryers are belt driven. Something has locked the drum or motor, and that is why you hear the humming sound. With the dryer turned off, reach inside the drum and try to turn it. It should turn pretty freely. There will always be some drag. If you need a lot of effort to turn the drum, then it is time to investigate what is causing the drag. Probably, something has gotten wedged between the drum and the front wall of the dryer.
If you cannot find anything there, then it could be helpful to remove the outer shell from the dryer and investigate further to find the source of the drag. This requires some mechanical skill, so think carefully if you want to try it or call a service company or simply replace the dryer. A used dryer can cost $100 or less.
