The repairman just took the front off my dryer and cleaned the dust from the components, now it works just fine, and I had the same problem as you.

Try first unplugging power cord from the appliance, this will drain power from circuits and reset it.
Check the door latch sensor, if that is stuck the door sensor will not let the machine start.
Keep pressed start button for 10 seconds or so, on some dryer this reset the machine.
If it still does not work then there is an internal fault , probably the timer assembly must be replaced.
If you need to call a technician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.
If you want to do it yourself, test the timer control, then if it is faulty replace it.
You find replacement here.

Hi-- none of the solutions I've read here are working. Same problem, dryer not starting, it says "Sensing..." and then "Wet" and does nothing. It worked fine on the last load, except I noticed it read 11 minutes for a very, very long time (I think it got stuck). New load? "Sensing..." etc.
