Q:

staring dryer DHDSR46EG7WW Ge Electric dryer

A:

Hello glad to help.  Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com
 
I am sorry and do understand your frustration when having trouble with the dryer.
 
Glad to help out.   Im  looking at your GE dryer model number DHDSR46EG7WW.

First thing for safety and concerns to keep dryer running well is to check the lint screen and vent of air flow going out of the house.   If clogged up it could cause heating problems on any dryer.
 
To prevent a Blocked Vent Hood, once a year: 
 
1.  Clean any lint blockage from the exhaust vent hood.
2.  Make sure the vent hood flappers move freely.
3.  Check for screen/grate openings that allow bird or rodent nests.
4.  Replace exhaust vent hood if damaged.
5.  Check for good air flow while running the dryer.
Note: Poor airflow or decreased airflow indicates further vent system cleaning is needed.

The three things to look at when the dryer isn't starting is first turn off then back on your fuse box and make sure the dryer plug is plugged in.    Since you are getting a humming noise will assume the plug is good.

Two item to look at of the dryer itself and both can be checked with a meter.    Take a look at the starting switch itself and the door switch.   I have both on the links below.
