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. : (

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.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Mike Brady - From what you have described it seems like the dryer is experiencing a wiring failure or a communication error with the control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.
