Dryer will not start when start button is pressed, makes a buzzing noise

After using my dryer for two timed cycles. I went to restart it on 15min. and it wouldn't start and made a buzzing noise. I change the time, and it makes the buzzing noise on every one, and won't start. Please help!!! My dryer stopped during the automatic drying cycle (apparently after only a short time). The laundry was still damp. Now the start button just makes a loud buzzing noise and the dryer won't start. I tried the previous suggestion (for cosimofrank) of setting the timer, holding the door button and turning the drum clockwise but it didn't help.

    Frigidaire Gallery model #FSG747GES, serial #XD70942315 - it's about 12 years old and I've never had a problem with it. Actually, this morning I got it to finish drying the laundry that was in it although, at first, the start button buzzed briefly then it worked. I noticed the cycle button didn't move much, if any, but the "cycle signal" buzzer went off so I knew the laundry was ready.

My dryer is not working and only making a buzzing noise when i press the start button

is the buzz more like a growl? if so, you probably have a bad motor. if it is truly a buzz, then try turing your timer to a different cycle. if the problem continues, replace the timer

My dryer makes a buzzing noise when I push the start button

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.
