    Yes my dryer does all the sensing and beeping but it does not start. It does not tumble! But you can right away feel it getting warm, it just doesn't turn and there is no sign the motor is starting, there is no other noise.

My Whirlpool Ultimate Care II with Accudry was stopping in the middle of a cycle as if the clothes were already done and dry but they were not. Even the cycle buzzer would come off in the middle of a cycle and stopped.
I fixed.
So if you have same problem it seems to be the sensors inside the dryer drum. They "think" the clothing is dry when it is still "moistured".
To fix it just clean those two metal sensors with a soft abrasive. I used a very fine sand paper and cleaned not only the exposed metal conductors. the ones that touch the cothing, but also in between the two conductors that black plastic base where the two metal contacs sit on, clean it. brused, sand it, in between so nothing will create a short between them.
Now it works fine again. I was ready to call my extended warranty.
I hope this help some one.

The fuse may be blown. It is located to the left of the vent hose and has two blue wires with push on tabs. Check for continuity between tabs. DISCONNECT POWER FIRST !!!!

1) sounds like that accudry sensor needs checking. If the accudry sensor (the back box with the two silver trips in it under the lint filter) does not sense wet garment it coul cause the dry to start and then cut off or not start at all. did you try using a cycle that does not sense the load you are dying. 2) the mother board of the dry may need chnaging depening on your dryer. if your dryer is like the cabrio, duet or the senseon dryer then it could be a motherboard problem.

The door is not compltely closing. Make sure to push it in hard around the clasp areas. If yours has a light, the light should turn off and on as you open and close the door.
