It could have blown the thermal fuse. On many dryers there is a thermal fuse that will blow if the dryer overheats. It is usually mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means it is bad. This is assuming that power is getting to the washer. Have you checked the house breaker box to see if it tripped a breaker? Hope this helped.

Dyrer wont run lights come on but wont run

If the belt is not off, it may be a loose wire to the sensor that switches the dryer off when the belt is off or broken. Mine had that problem. If that doesn't work you will have to replace the tension pulley sensor.

The dyrer will not turn on. The dryer makes a humming noise but will not turn on.

Open the dryer door and slowly rotate the dryer drum in a counterclockwise (CCW) direction. Rotate the drum 2-3 revolutions and then shut the door and see if it will start. If it continues to just hum and not start could indicate a voltage issue, motor issue or a friction issue. Open the door again and locate the door switch plunger in the upper or lower corner on the hinge side of the drum opening. Hold the plunger in while someone begins rotating the drum counterclockwise. While turning the drum counter clockwise and holding the door switch plunger inwards press the start button. If it starts, there is likely a friction problem or motor problem. Also, check the blower on the dryer to see if a article of clothing may have gotten stuck there and preventing the motor from running.

Start at the door switch. Push it in with you finger and listen for a click. Then you must physically look at the door switch to make sure the wires are connected

My electric GE dryer stopped working today, when

sounds like the motor is running, the belt could likely be broken and be the culprit, this is if the motor is turning for sure after you start the dryer

Maytag dyrer mdg6200aww the heating systwm does not stay on

Remove the vent from the rear of the dryer.
With no clothes in the dryer and the dryer set for hi heat run the dryer several minutes.
With a accurate thermometer check the exhaust vent temperature.
It should be 135 to 160 degrees.
If it is, you are OK. Just need to clean your vent and connecting tubing.
If not, replace your gas valve coils.

Convert a gas dyrer into a electric dryer?

Sell the dryer and get an electric one. Conversion is not possible. Be advised that electric dryers run on 220 volts and require a special plug. hope this helps!

Whirlpool gas dryer

From the sound of your problem, it appears you may have a faulty overtemp switch that gets too hot , opens the circuit to disable gas and flame, then cools down and allows it to start again.. Since you didn't provide a specific model number with your question.. use this link to find replacement whirlpool thermal fuses etc..

Hope this helps..
