Maytag dryer drum won't start when hot

I have a Performa Maytag Dryer Model # PYG2000AWW. When the unit is cold, it will start and run fine. After the first load is done and the dryer is still hot, I put a new load in from the washer and all I get is a load buzz but the drum won't spin. I can start the drum manually and then quickly shut the door and it will work.
I have already replaced the belt as the unit is over 10 years old. Could it be the solenoid or the motor? How can I test to see what might be the problem?

Definately the motor, the buzz is the sound a motor makes when it has what is called a "Locked Rotor".

When its all said and done there is usually more said than done
