The air flow housing under lint filter in door is most likely obstructed with lint or debris, or your fan that moves air is worn out.

I would have a look at the wires going to your start switch or door switch. Sounds like they may have come unhooked or broken.

Check panel for tripped breaker. Check with a volt meter that you have 2 legs of 125v to back of dryer. See youtube for demonstration of testing. Can you hear the timer run? It is pretty quiet, but is a ticking noise.

In order of probable causes, most common to least common are:
1) the door switch, that allows the dryer to start when you close the door, has broken or may even have fallen down inside the machine.
They are plastic, and break easily.
2) A fusable link/thermostat has failed inside or under the machine, not allowing it to start.
3) A wire inside (under or behind) the machine has burned in two, needs repair.
4) A connection has failed in the wiring where the eloectric cord is hooked to the back of the machine.
5) The timer has quit.
If you wish to fix it yourself, you will be needing several tools and a good testing instrument to find the problem.
A letter to "fixya" could cause someone to walk you through the testing and repair, a step at a time.
Be blessed.

Your dryer has a thermal fuse about the size of a dime that is located near the element, if it fails the dryer will not start. The fuse can be bypassed for testing purposes only or tested for continuity.

Hi steveramputi...

Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley, or a faulty motor.
Note: This method works for most front loading machines.
If you have to check/replace/repair your drum motor,drum seals,belt,rollers, etc.
If replacing drum seals be sure to use a good grade of weather proof cement to hold the seal/s in place, some seals are furnished with the cement to glue it in place.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch,start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if necessary. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other electrical connections.
Remove the lint filter and the two screws that hold the filter housing to the top of the dryer lid.
Then remove the top of the dryer by inserting a screwdriver between the top and frame on each side of the dryer to pop the lid up from the retaining clips.
Note: Some of the tops tilt backwards on a type of hinge and do not have to be removed completly.
Remove the front of the machine by disconnecting the door switch and removing the two screws located on either side of the dryer frame.
Move the door and front of machine forward to remove.
This will expose the belt,idler bracket and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
Note:The way the belt goes back on is, as the belt comes off the drum has to be doubled (pushed together to form a loop) and goes under the idler pulley then to the motor pulley.
Here is a link to see a picture of your belt routing in case the belt is broken when you open your dryer:

While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you remove and lubricate the drum rollers.
And also clean the shafts of the rollers as they will collect hair,dust,etc and cause problems and then lubricate the shafts and rollers with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil or a vasoline type of lubricant. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting dry and making a squeeling noise, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a thumping type noise.
You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
