Question about Dryers
You may want to check circuit breakers in your Breaker Panel to see if the one for your Dryer is tripped, and reset it if it is. Even though you have a Gas Dryer the Drum still operates on electricity, so without it the Dryer wouldn't function at all.
I don't think that the sock is stopping your Dryer, as the lint filter just filters lint from your Dryer's exhaust. So, even with the lint filter out a sock couldn't fit through the small holes in the drum that ventilate it (that's how the lint gets to the filter). I guess there could be a switch that detects whether the filter is in the machine and cut it off though, so you may try to re seat the lint filter (replace the lint screen/filter making sure it's in all the way), and try to start it again. If you look inside the Drum and see any way that a sock or anything else could get out other than through the door opening? That would be a problem.
If the filter was missing for several loads of laundry? Then you could have a restriction in the exhaust causing a thermal overload circuit to cut it off too (prevents the Dryer from catching fire). Does the light come on in the Dryer when you open the door?
From the information you posted, all I got is that it's a Gas Dryer that won't run and you appear to be missing a sock, so more detailed information will probably help in finding your solution.
I'll check back, and Good Luck finding that sock.
