When I set the timer and hit the start button I either get a buzzing sound or the motor wants to go, but it will keep going. I opened the front door held down the switch to the door and it did the same thing. Could it be the start button?

Below I referred you to a great service nation wide! A&E Factory Service A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7 And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures! 1(800) 905-9505 near me they only charge $75 service call which is reasonable in today s market!
Unfortunately, another point to consider!! How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!! Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket! The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
You will be fine Bless You ngafm1

Good day, Sounds very much like the motor is going bad. Very slim chance that the timer could cause that problem because of pitted contacts, but that would not explain away the noise when trying to start. Here's a good tutorial if you want to replace the motor.
Hi. there can be many issue that can cause this type of interruption in normal operations. Lets go threw a few.One could be a faulty or dead motor. The timer board sends a signal to the motor once the start button is pushed. If the motor is malfunctioning or the wires that connect to the motor are lose or old and worn, the motor will usually click or buzz. the fault itself can be within the timer assembly or the motor itself. the best way to find out is to test the current flow at the motor by using a multimeter. connect this meter to the motor terminals and select the cycle and hit the start button. if the meter reads voltage at the motor and the motor clicks or buzzes, this will confirm an actual motor failure. if the voltage at the motor is weak or not there 0, this means the timer will need to be replaced. Next, I would check the door switch for its operational value. you can use the same method as i discussed above with the meter. use the terminals for testing on the switch. This could be a problem area as well. if the switch is malfunctioning, the dryer will not run at all. you will find the problem in one or both of the discussed areas above.
burned out element probably to much lint on the element and motor unplug dryer and take back off and use a vacume to vacume up all the lint and look at the element to see if they are broken they are fairly cheap .cheaperthan a new dryer also check the belt it mighjt be broken
