SOURCE: dryer wont run but lights are on
check the door switch.or you may need to replce the main control panel. but you also need to check the thermal fuses inside the dryer cabinet,one of those can be bad.

Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.

It sounds like you have been through most of the areas too look.
One thing to make sure of is that you have a full 240 volts. An electric dryer can measure 120 volts. from L1 to common and 120 volts from L2 to common but you also need to make sure you have 240 volts from L1 to L2 on the meter, one leg of the breaker or one of the two fuses could be blown.
If this is alright you only have a couple components left. The timer contacts and the drive motor. Either of these could be causing the issue.
To check the motor with the power disconnected check for continuity between switch terminal 5 and the Green(black) wire on the motor. If you have no continuity the motor is bad. Check for continuity between the terminal 6 and the yellow wire on the motor, if you have no continuity there the motor is bad. Check for continuity between terminal 1 and 2 on the motor if you you do not have continuity the motor is bad.
The timer should have continuity between the Yellow and Grey wire terminals for the motor to start.
I hope this helps
