Check the fuse on the blower housing.

The thermal overload fuse is probably bad. It is located under the top of the dryer near or at the drum. Bypass it to see if that is it. Next area to look at is the element. It may have just went out.

More than likely the belt for the drum or the door switch is faulty. What is the model of your whirpool?
