My dryer will make a humming sound when the dial is in the on position, but when I hit the start button, nothing happens. The drum won't spin and it just keeps making the humming/buzzing sound on the control board.

A model number may help others help you.

Can you narrow down where the humming is coming from?
Sometimes it is difficult as the whole dryer seems to reverberate.

If it is the off buzzer then it is probably a timer problem.

It sounds like it wants to turn on. The noise is coming from the timer. When I set the timer it has kind of and electrical sound.
