make sure that the unit is not also grounded to the neutral via ground strap or green wire that goes from neutral terminal to the body

Sounds like a bad door switch.
When the door is open, the power flows to the light.
When the door is closed, the power flows to the push to start switch.
2. styles. Older models you remove 2 screws from the bottom of the front panel, pull out bottom of the panel and drop down.
Machine must be unplugged first.
Newer models, you must use a thin putty knife between the top panel and the front panel.
There are 2 clips that must be depressed to release the top lid.
The panels are tight to each other, and finding the location of the clips is difficult.
Some techs use a plastic putty knife so as not to damage the finish.
The clips are near both ends and must be depressed and the lid lifted slightly, one side at a time.
Slide the putty knife in near the center, then start sliding it to one side until you feel it hitting the clip.
Mark the area were the putty knife stopped.
Remove the putty knife, move it over about an inch and a half.
Insert it, and force the clip rearward until it releases and lift that side up slightly.
Repeat on other side. Then the lid will lift up.
You will be able to see how to access the switch at this point.
There are many reasons a dryer will not run, but if the light went out, and it fails to start at the same time, this is the obvious answer.
Please post back, if this solution fails..

Tips for a great answer:
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
