Dryer problems can be a good home project. I would suggest adding the complete model number to help the expert provide the best information possible. I did locate a similar question with general information that may help. I attached below along with the Sears Home Services link if you decide to schedule a technician.

Mod 110.69422801 Ser M01527409 Type:D433-ELE-2406026-FM54 I took the top and front off and cleaned out all lint (was not alot). The drum turns freely by hand and the pulleys and motor don't make any sounds when turned. Belt appears in good shape as well. Found a reply elsewhere on this site about how to check timer so I took the timer off and checked the continuity between the red wire on terminal A and the black wire on terminal C. The ohm reading did not rise above 0.2

Your drum as you know is belt driven connected with a idler pulley then the motor pulley. The heating element cannot operate unless the motor runs so the humming must be the motor. Be sure that the belt is correctly attached to the idler pulley and the motor pulley. If they are then the drum must turn if the motor is running.
