If the dryer just hums when you press the start button, it means that the motor is getting power and not turning over. Make sure the dryer drum isn't jammed for some reason. If the drum rotates, then your motor itself needs to be replaced I'm sorry to say. Below is a link to the main drive motor you'd need to order for your model.
