The gas valve has coils on top of it that when energized create a magnetic force which holds the gas valve open....The coils can stup a lound noise under certain conditions....there maybe a temporary electrical problem in your are that is causing them to make the noise...

I would wait a day or two and see if it stops before replacing the coils...

My gas dryer makes a loud buzzing sound when the gas come on how do I fix it?

This noise can be caused by the solenoid valve that controls the gas flow to the burner. If the dryer is not getting hot then the valve needs to be replaced. Depending upon the age and manufacturer the valve may be an integral part of the burner assembly.

People, the first words the poster said were that the dryer was "brand new". All of your suggestions assume the dryer had extensive use. This sounds like a factory defect issue!!!! My brand new Maytag Cabrio gas dryer is also making an obnoxious buzzing sound that seems to cycle on and off as the gas ignites. The buzzing sounds electronic not mechanical. What would buzz when the burner is active?

Maytag gas dryer noise when burner comes on

The noise you are describing is coming from the gas valve solenoid coil assembly. This is usually indicative of weak coil.
If this is a warranty situation, request a factory authorized certified technician to replace the solenoid assy. at no charge.
If you want to fix it yourself, be sure and ask us for instructions on replacing the part safely.
