Post Whirlpool Dryer Problems

We have a Whirlpool electric clothes dryer, model number LE7680XSW1, which is very hesitant or balky when trying to start. When we try to start it we will get a buzzing sound from what I assume is the motor. If I hold the start button down more than 6 to 8 seconds it kicks off completely; no sound. I wait a half hour or so and it seems to reset itself. I find at times with maybe a third of a normal load of clothes it will start.

I have tested everything external I know to test and they all seem to be working properly, door switch, dials, start button, etc.

Anyone have any suggestions.

If you check all that it's sound like it time to replace the motor.
