You have a bad motor. There should be a button you can press to make your dryer go while the door is open. Hold that and push the button in and then turn the drum. if that doesn't make it go then it is your motor

If yourdryer is not heating, check your dryer's venting. First thing to check is to see if you aregetting air flow to the outside through your vent hood. Next, check your voltage to see if you aregetting 220 volts to your outlet. Youcan do this by taking a volt meter set at 250 volts. Take the red leg of the volt meter to the oneside and the black leg to the other side. If the volt reader reads 220 then you are getting the propervoltage. Finally, if you are getting 220volts then it is your dryer heating elements. On a 220 volt for the dryer one leg is for the motor and leg is for theelement. If you are getting 220 volt thenit is your heating elements that are bad.

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).
