Perhaps the thermal fuse is open. All thermostats and thermal fuses should be closed for continuity at room temperature on this dryer.

SOURCE: START AND RUN PROBLEM
check the motor relay. there are 4 wires( 2 are pink and black) this goes to the coil of the relay and must show resistance(closed) you can also jump out the 2 blue wires and see it the unit keeps running. The part number for the relay is: FSP3405281 approx 40.00US

Testimonial: "you have been alot of help now I need to go home and double check the items you have listed to see if I can get my dryer to work"

Here is a good link for basic troubleshooting... But 10 to one the culprit is a thermal fuse or thermal cut off.... they are usually pretty cheap and easy to replace....
One final note on these: if you find your thermal fuse\cut off (or element) open, before replacing it, be sure to check the airflow out your dryer's vent system. Even though these devices do 'wear out' with age, poor airflow's the #1 cause of failure of these devices, and if your vent's partially clogged, a new thermal won't last very long, but will do its job again, and leave you 'cold' (a new element won't last long if the vent's clogged, either).

if your sure the thermal fuse is good,, check the start switch,, making sure the dryer select setting is set to something other than off, also, the door switch . you can Jumper both these switches, I'd try the door switch first as they go out more often . if you have a meter and want to test the switch Some door switches have only two metal prongs extending from the body, while others have three. Those with three terminals will have a common (COM) terminal, a normally closed (N.C.) terminal, and a normally open (N.O.) terminal. Those switches with only two terminals will have either a common terminal and a normally open terminal, or a common terminal and a normally closed terminal. We are providing directions for testing a door switch with three terminals. If you are dealing with a door switch that has only two terminals, ignore the part of this test that does not apply to you.Use your ohmmeter to test your switch for continuity. Begin by setting your ohmmeter to measure resistance at a scale of R x 1. If yours is a two-wire switch, touch each tester probe to each of the switch's terminals. You should receive a reading of infinity. While the probes are still touching the switch's terminals, press in on and hold the switch. The reading should change to zero.
