SOURCE: kenmore dryer will not start
If the buzzing noise is from the vicinity of the switch, then suspect the push button contacts, if from within the bowels of the machine, then something is probably preventing the motor from running up to speed, it is stalled - (there are buzzes, and buzzes).This could be many things, from something mechanically jamming the drum, to worn bearings or a faulty motor/start circuit.
As I am not aware of your skills, I am not asking you to take the back off and have a look.

The motor is weak and needs replaced, don't hold the start button too long or you may smoke the motor's thermal protection and it could get smokey and stinky. Make sure you can get the blower wheel off before you make a run for parts, sometimes you have to break them off the shaft. : (

WARNING: High Voltage may bzzt you... careful.
Your dryer thinks that it is at the end of a dry cycle.
First thing to do is disconect the dryer from the 220v mains and let it sit for about 10 min.
then, spin the timer four or five times around and then stop it at a TIMED dry cycle, not an automatic cycle. (example: 60 minutes).
Plug unit back into the wall.
SLAM door on unit and press button again...
