plumber, pop the top on the dryer by pushing on the two clips just under the top on each side. In the back you will see the heater. You want to check the high limit thermostat (this one sits on the top side of the heater) and the thermal fuse (sits on the side about 4 inches down. Unplug the dryer and check them with a meter. If either shows open (no continuity) replace them. Make sure your venting is not clogged up and the heater is not grounded or fractured. Part number for the high limit is 53-0771 and for the thermal fuse is LA-1053. Check these first...Catriver...post back. Unable to find your exact model, but I do have cye4000ayw. parts should be the same.

Problem: Push On Button, Press to Start. Click. Sensing. No Tumbling.
Solution: Called repairperson. Replaced Thermal Fuse (Part 3390719) and also suggested having venting system checked (ours vents through attic). Charged $198.00. This did not appear to be a problem that a layperson could fix, although a very handy person might be able to do it.

Push the button manually and see if the light goes off . If it does , then the problem is the thermal fuse (a white slim piece of plastic with 2 wires connected to it ) located on the blower housing beneath the drum .
