Sounds like a faulty thermal switch. most dryers have at least two. one is a hi-temp sensor that just goes out--no more drying until you replace the sensor. The other resets after it cools--but TWO days??. Funny thing , I think I had a similar problem a while ago. I think I replaced both sensors.
Maybe there is lint in the exhaust line. I'd clean that really well, and make sure it doesn't get bent or pinched in such a way as to restrict the flow. If that does not work, replacing the sensors is not too hard or expensive. If that's done and the problem persists, you are going to have to call the manufacturer. Heck, do that first--maybe that will get you a better answer.

What is wrong with a Frigidaire front load dryer whose start button light comes on but drier just humms.

Most likely the belt has slipped off the drum. It might have also worn out. The process to repair it is a pain. You did not post the make and model but if there is a kick panel under the door you can remove that easily to check the belt. Unplug the machine and remove the screws that hold the panel. They are under the bottom edge. Take the panel off and get a vacuum cleaner and clean out all the lint. Use a light to see the belt and the motor. You can use your hand to turn the drum and see if the motor turns or you can check it by close inspection. If the belt is off the pulley you have to take the whole top of the dryer off to get to it. Check the back for screws and remove any that hold the top on. The top lifts off of the unit and it make take some serious pulling to get it loose. You can then see into and around the drum.

Dryer won't turn on

Is your dryer electric or gas. If electric, check your fuse box first thing. If it is an older model and your home has an older fuse box, and the boxes uses the big bullet type fuses for the 220 line, one or both fuses could be bad. If so, go buy two new fuses and give it a t;ry.

Dryer stooped working suddenly.

Replace the fan belt that turns the dryer drum. Use only the genuine replacement spare part for your dryer.
