Could be the start button, but also could be a broken drum belt or the belt maybe has slipped off the motor pulley or idle arm pulley. Also could be a bad motor. Check to see if the motor is turning first and the belt is on properly.

Dryer doesn't start


Actually, it's probably the switch under the button meeting its demise.

Dryer will not start but timer ticking


If the start button is an "ON - OFF" button (meaning, you can turn the dryer off manually instead of resetting timer in order to switch it off), try turning the dryer ON...then switch it back to "OFF".
Hopefully the dryer will continue, and the thermostat will kick in.
