It runs long enough to dry a load but then when you try to do another one it just buzzes when you push the button to start it. If you wait awhile then it will work,... like it over heated or something.
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
This is showing the symptoms of an air flow problem. I suspect that there is just enough air flow in the unit but when it shuts off the internal temps of the cabinet are providing enough heat to also cause the motor thermal overload to cycle.
You should break out the crevice tool and de-lint everything you can access. Also pull out the lint filter and wash it with white vinegar and water then soap and water. Fabric softener sheets material builds up on lint filters. It looks clean but air will not pass through the lint filter.
Additionally inspect the vent ducting inside and outside the of dryer for lint build up. Make sure you go outside the home and check the vent flapper at the through the wall connction for lint build up also. This is often where lint build up problems start and then migrate inward blocking air flow.
If all of the above is good you will have to check the blower wheel mounted on the motor drive shaft for signs of a broken hub or... fan blades. A broken fan will cause poor air flow.
The dryer should provide enough air flow to push a relaxed hand / wrist away from the connection point on the back of the dryer. If you do not have this kind of air flow at the back of the dryer connection you need to find out the cause. I.e. lint build up or a fan problem.
