Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the issue lies with the motor. Is the noise like a humming/buzzing type noise? If it is only the clicking noise, the relay on the control board is probably failing. Let me know on the type of noise and I can get you the correct part link.

In the top left corner of the control panel I hear a tick tock type of sound as the dryer tries to start. The motor starts off a little louder than normal, but no alarming sounds then smooths out to run normally. When i press start the dryer will spin a few times then shut off, then repeatedly try to start on its own eventually running a full dry cycle. once running the motor seems fine

I believe the motor is going to need to be replaced. The motor is available below. There is also a video at that link that will show you how the motor is replaced!
