The most likely item is the door switch! If that switch is not activated, then everything is cut off.

Check for a restriction in your exhaust vent. not just behind the machine but all the way to the outside vent,should have good warm airflow at outside vent. With no good air flow you have no way to get rid of the moisture. and all you will end up with is warm moist clothes. this can happen slowley happen over time and next thing you know it takes several cycles to dry the clothes .it cost a lot to dry them this way

check your main breaker box first, see if it tripped, if the breaker looks okay then turn off the breaker for the dryer and reset the breaker switch, if this still doesn't work then a fuse has popped on the circuit board.

You did not post the model number but there is a belt that wraps around the drum and there is a pulley that keeps the belt tight. If you turn the drum the wrong way, there is an outstanding chance that the belt has slipped off the pulley and there is a not start switch attached to it. Without the model number, that is all I can say.

Did you have a problem restarting the dryer after each use? It could be a bad motor or open contact in the timer.I would also check the wiring harness and the plug going to the motor. Hope this helps

You mean ALE643RBW... drew blanks when I first looked and gave up. So... there's no moister sensor for this model. It runs the cycle by the start point of the timer. Its labled "more" dry or "less" dry in some fashion which merely changes the length of the cycle. Simple and dependable but doesn't meet todays "green" requirements.
Most likely it is the timer which lists at ~$170US from Sears. Your dryer has gotta have some years on it so not sure what else it may need in the near future. If you can do repairs yourself, $80 refurb timer on Ebay Otherwise to pay labor and markup... better off with new.
