Hi, You will need to remove the front lower panel and this will get you to the element and thermostats.
With the dryer running. check voltage to the element and you should get 240V. If there is voltage, you will need to change the element.
If there is no voltage to the element, UNPLUG the dryer and check the thermostats and fuse for continuity. These parts are located on the element housing and the blower housing under the drum.
If any of the thermostats or the fuse are open, they will need replaced.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
Things that will cause a dryer to just up and stop are:
1. Door switch
2. Motor Switch
3. Belt switch
The first thing to check is the door...
a. Verify the door remains closed and that if you gently tug on the door that it does NOT make the door switch click. Things like the switch actuation post get worn and clothes being dried press against the door and can cause the dryer to stop.
The second thing to check is the drum.
a. Reach inside the dryer and push the drum in either direction. If it moves easily with little resistance (Belt not turning the motor as drum is moved) then the belt has broken and the belt saftey switch has been activated causing the dryer to appear dead in all aspects.
The last thing that can cause it to just stop is a failure of the motor or motor switch. (Least suspects at this time)
Also go to the main Circuit breaker panel and physically turn off the dryer 30A Circuit breakers by pushing them against the off position and then back to the on position. This resets the breaker completely
You did not mention the age of this Dryer yet at this time I suspect a broken belt has tripped the belt safety switch.
Thanks for using FixYa!
