Question about Dryers
I'm assuming that the dryer is still getting power from the wall outlet. If so, listen to hear if the motor is still spinning. If it is, it sounds like the drum belt broke and will need to be replaced. Some models are easier than others to replace.
If you don't hear the motor spinning and again, if there is power to the machine, check the door switch. They're easy to check with a volt/ohm meter and can and do fail. UNPLUG the dryer, set your volt/ohm meter to CONTINUITY or OHMS. When you press the switch, the reading should be close to 0 ohms. If there is no difference in the reading whether or not the switch is pressed, you need replace the switch in order to get back to getting your clothes smelling April fresh again. :) Also, make sure the switch is in tight and hasn't become loose, causing it to not be actuated by the door. (Actually make this the first thing you do. :)
These are just a couple of basic things to check and I hope one of them gets you going again! Let me know if you need any further assistance! :)
