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.

My Hotpoint dryer is seven years old and did the exact same thing. When I got over the anger and the thought of spending 4 or 5 hundred dollars to replace it I started messing with it. I finally decided that since it buzzed when I tried to start it there was current there. The only other thing it could be was the drying cycle knob.
I held the start knob and let it buzz while I slowly turned the dryer cycle knob to the right. As I turned through each cycle it would hit "off" and the buzzing would stop and then resume as I moved past the "off " setting. On the third trip around the dryer "started" and has been working since. Maybe something got out of kilter. Apparently the problem was in the knob that controls the drying cycles.

If the humming noise is coming from the motor, (take the back panel off) remove the power plug and try to turn the motor by hand. If it seems free, look for a 'starter' capacitor on the motor which may be bad.

To lift the top panel you will need to remove front panel first.
Procedure is detailed at page 29 section 5-1 of the manual here.
Here also a link with all parts diagrams for your model.
