Fly, sounds like you blew the thermal fuse. This is located on the front blower. You will need to remove door by removing the two screws and lifting up on the hinge. Remove the 2 spacers on the other side of the door. Now the panel will pull out and the blower will be exposed. The fuse will look like the one on the right of the attached picture....Catriver..post back.

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.

Sounds like a weak motor. You'll have to get a new motor installed. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to install yourself on that type of machine if you are handy. Motor is located in the bottom right of the machine, attached to the drum belt through a small pulley underneath the drum next to the motor.

first check and make sure the power breaker is on. next the door when it closes there is a safety switch normaly there is a small hole around the frame of the door. when you push on it, you shoud hear a clicking noise. if you don"t, that switch will prevent the tumbler from turning another thing is the belt that goes around the tumbler if it's loose or broken the tumbler will not turn. that can be checked by accessing the bottom panel in the back the belt should be tight. good luck!
