It is possible that the door switch is defective. Switch is on inside of front panel. If so you have to dismantle dryer to remove switch.This switch will prevent motor from starting. Is timer running? You should be able to hear small motor running near timer. If not, make sure 240 volt breaker is not tripped. Dryer motor and timer only run on 120 volts and heating element uses 240 volts. So, if one side of 240 volt circuit is dead it may be the side of the circuit that powers motor. Try flipping breaker off and on again. If possible, check circuit with volt meter ONLY if you know how to. If not, get a tech to check out.

Have you checked the vent from the dryer to outside. One indication of a restricted vent is taking too long to dry clothes. To check, remove vent tubing from back of dryer and dry a load.
