oK " It's your timer, it has to be replaced
it's not going threw all it cycles, will start but will not finish
not a big job, unscrew plate on back at the top you will see
timer , take it out and replace it
( can not stress enough that you have to unplug the electrical cord from the wall socket before working on a dryer or any appliance )

In the back of your thin twin dryer is a small white flat fuse attached with a screw, a clip, and two spade clips and wires. This is a thermal fuse and if tripped will cause your dryer to do nothing. Check with multimeter for continuity and replace if necessary. Also inside machine is a black tubular capacitor that will cause dryer to not run. Again, remove after properly discharging capacitor. Using multimeter check capacitor for continuity and potential. Obviously disconnect all power to machine before even thinking about repair. 240 volts will kill you dead.

The following link will give you some additional advice on how to troubleshoot a dryer:
Read through the link provided, thoroughly. It does cover many common dryer problems and how to diagnose them.
You know at this point that have power to the unit, because the drum light is working. Now...with the door open, does the light go out when you push the door switch in by hand? Is that how you determined the switch to be good? If the light does not go off, the switch may not be working properly and the dryer will not start. Another easy item to check is the thermal FUSE. The fuse is located behind the lower panel under the door. It is a white plastic component mounted to the top of air blower housing right under the drum in the front. There should be two wires going to it. If the thermal fuse is good, it should read a short (or close to zero ohms). These two first items I mention will kill a dryer from starting and are the most common problems to start with. Read through the section "Dryer Does Not Run at All" and let me know if require further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
