There are a couple of things that may have happened here.  If the lights and control panels, and the timer are all working, but the drum isn't turning, you might have broken the drum belt.  This is a fairly easy repair (if you have experience with tools and taking things apart).  Open the dryer up (assuming it's not under any kind of warranty), and find the *remnants* of the belt.  Take the numbers off of it, order a new one, and install it - it just goes around the motor pulley and the drum.  Put it back together, and it should be fixed.
Now, if there is also no heat, then there is a possibility you have burned a fuse.  There should be a couple of fuses behind the control panel - I would check those.
Lastly (and probably the worst case scenario) the drive motor may have burned out.  In this case, you might have to get a tech out there to take a look at it and replace.  
Good luck!

I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II dryer. The dryer stopped working. It is getting electricity but still won't start. Any idea what the problem could be??

The first thing you need to check is if you actually have 240 Volts going into the dryer. Sometimes one half of the (dual) circuit breaker opens and only sends 120 Volts down the line. If you hear a buzzing sound when you press "start" but nothing happens, it could be a stuck motor. Or the motor could be running but the belt is broke. There are more possible scenarios, but try this first.

I have a Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher Quiet Partner IV. GU Series. It has stopped working and there are no lights on the panel. We have checked the power supply and that is fine.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Press and hold the AIR DRY/RINSE ONLY button to reset the control, if you have already tried this and it is possible that the door was opened while in cycle then the first thing that should be checked is the door switch/lock assembly. You can take a hair dryer and try to blow air on that, if the problem returns then replacing the door switch/lock assembly is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Won't turn on

It's calle a door switch. You should see two screw by the lint filter. Remove them and use a putty knife under the top at the front to release two clips and the top will swing up. You may be able to access the switsh from there. Other wise there are two screw into the front from the inside and the bottomof the front panel should be held on by tabs you can lift it off of.

Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Electric Dryer

Hi, there sould be a two piece door catch. One piece on the door and another on the front panel that the door closes to. Look at the piece on the door. You will probably find it is bad. You can buy just that piece and change it. I hope this helps. If I can assist you further please let me know.
