sumanth m 's answer may well be correct because I have the same dryer and it has the same problem. I got a massive electric shock off mine and so I think the buzzing is a protection measure against a short circuit

Most likely, remove water collector, look under machine there is a part that meets water collector that needs to be removed and cleaned

My son seems to have fixed my dryer.
Although I followed the instructions about cleaning the filter after each cycle and the condenser after ten, fluff had blocked the drainage from the internal reservoir to the water collection bottle. It seems like this will be an ongoing problem, as even cleaning every time, fluff will gradually biuld up. The filter isn't good enough to stop fibres getting into the condenser and then into the reservoir behind it.
I expect that taking the cover off the reservoir to clean it invallidates a guarantee if you have one, but that is what my son did and now the dryer is working.

here is the procedure:
1) There are 3 screws on the rear at the top that hold a plastic strip, remove the screws and the strip.

2) Slide out the top panel to the rear.
3) In each of the top front corners there is a screw, remove it and slide the top trim bars back and remove.
4) Tilt the machine backwards; remove 3 screws from the front underside.
5) Remove 2 screws from the top panel behind the control panel trim (each one about 2” inboard of the corner screws in step 3.)
6) Take note / photograph the mains switch connections, controller PCB connections and control knob connection. Remove the connectors and the control knob.
7) Slide the control panel to the right and remove.
8) Open the door.There are 2 screws by each hinge on the left.There are another 2 screws to the right.Remove 2 screws on the hinge side that have the same heads and level with the screws on the right.Remove the 2 screws on the right.
9) Pull off the front panel.
10) Remove the lint trap.
11) Remove the 2 screws that secure the lint trap housing to the front support frame. (Look up at the lint trap from the floor, they are under the front edge of the lint trap housing, one on each side.)
12) Support the drum (you can use a solid cardboard box that just fits between the drum and the machine floor.)
13) Remove the 4 M4 head screws (8mm box spanner) that hold the front support frame to the chassis.
14) Lift the front support frame up and pull the lower part forward to release it from the chassis.

thanks ,keep updated and accept the solution

It could be the temprature sensor located behind the front cover, it has 2 red wires and is an easy replacable and cheap part.It will need the top removing,front switch cover removing and then the screws for the front cover but not the screws securing the door as this will come off as one. Hope this helps
