You need to check the exhaust, from the back of the dryer to where it leaves the out side. They sell a brush you may use to clean the pipes, You may also use a vacume. Try it with the hose diconnected from the back for a load. If it does better then, get to cleaning. be sure you check the lint filter. Good luck, and please rate my answer that I can improve them.

check internally for a broken "drum belt", the "Drum- Belt" switch is controlled by the belt tensioner off the motor pulley and drum,if this belt breaks the unit cannot start due to this switch in series electrically,and shuts off the unit for safety, so as the drum cannot turn it cannot start not turning your laundry and catch your clothes on fire

Does it buzz or growl? Reach inside and turn the dryer by hand. Is the drum hard to turn? Might be a bad roller or possibly something stuck in the filter chute and lodged against the blower. I worked on a dryer exactly like yours and made a video. If the blower is clean and clear of obstacles and the wheels are fine then the motor needs to be replaced which is easy to do. The hardest part is getting the blower wheel off the motor (backward threads on it) Motor replacement video:
