    I have the same problem. I checked the thermal fuse and they were ok. After taking further voltage reading I replaced the motor but I still have the same problem.

    I have a Whirlpool LEN1000PQ0 Electric Dyer which has the same problem. Dyer was working, when I pulled the clothes out and put in another load, nothing. The dyer would not work. I checked the Thermal fuse and shows .000 ohms. Is this the correct ohms? This would be the second thermal fuse I've replaced.

Most newer dryers have a thermal fuse link which prevents them from producing heat if it has overheated due to lint build up. Safety! Remove the back of the dryer after you unplug it of course. Look for a white, two connector, block about 1/4 by 1-1/2 inches, mounted to the back of the heat transfer duct. Remove both of the wires from the the connectors and test the fuse for continuity. Multi meter needed. This should show 0 Ohms. If there is no change on the meter than this fuse is bad. Most any appliance parts place will have in stock. $12 - $15 Clean out as much lint as posible from the exhaust opening with a vacuume and reinstall the back panel.

My dryer was working. I stopped it to take my clothes. When I went to put in the wet clothes my dryer would not start.

Try pressing on the door to close it and
see if it starts. It sounds like the door switch has failed or the actuating arm is bent. You should hear a click as the door just barely opens or is nearly closed. No click = no start. I.e. Door switch problem.
