If you hear the blower ramp up when you start the dryer and it slowly ramps down or quits all together then you need to replace the blower.

i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

Start button starts dryer and dryer stops when button is released.


Ge dryers have a belt sensing switch inside that won't let the dryer run (just as you describe) when the belt breaks or comes off. My guess is you broke a belt. With door open---hold in button door switch and hit the start switch to get it too run a few seconds. Watch the drum and see if it turns. My guess it will not. Belt is a long skinny band that goes all around the drum outer area and then down around the motor.

Maytag dryer MD-24 error symbol?


The dryer completes the cycle you have set. If you do not remove the contents at the end of the cycle, the dryer performs the start-stop routine you describe until you get around to removing the contents. Eventually even the start-stop routine ends and the contents just lie in a heap until removed

My gas dryer starts and will run. However when you let off the start button the dryer stops. If we hold the start button on it will run through it's entire cycle with no problems.

Maytag 5806 Gas Dryer starts and suddenly stops.


You may have a problem with a thermal overload sensor. Since it runs and then shuts off, this sounds like the problem.
