I would change the control thermostat. It is mounted next to the skinny white fuse on the filter housing under the dust cover on the back side.

Hi,
The motor on your dryer has gone bad. The humming is the motor trying to start and the smell is the motor getting hot because it is not starting.
You need to replace the motor.

Sounds like a potentially bad motor. When trying to start the dryer, it may have opened the thermal protector, which is why you are no longer getting the noise. Check that nothing is just stuck in the drum seal or blower wheel, seizing the motor. If all is clear, replace the motor.

Dryer making a buzzing sound in the console but not running


Unplug the dryer.
Remove the rear panel.
Look on the exhaust vent for a failed fuse.
It will be narrow and about 1 and 1/2 inches long.
Remove the 2 wires and jump them together.
Plug in the dryer and start it.
If everything works OK replace the thermal fuse.

Just buzzes


 the only thing you can do to possibly solve this problem without a professional is to:
  • tape down the door switch with strong tape, or have someone else hold it down.
  • physically turn the tub inside the dryer while pushing the start switch.
  • this will hopefully loosen whatever has the motor stuck.
if this does not work then the motor in the dryer might be bad or going bad, especially if a burning smell is present when you hear the humming sound.
