It lacks proper running shoes.
On the other hand if we had a model, how long you had it, we might be alittle more helpful.
Still... the dryer is a simple machine, it has a motor and a belt and a drum.
If the motor is not running, it might be broken or it may be an electrical problem. If the motor turns but the drum does not, the belt might be broken.
Good luck.

Samsung Fridge freezer - switches on fine. reaches correct temps .. turns off .. and then dont come back on again HELP HELP HELP


It could be the compressor winding's starting to cause it not to start up after running for a while because the drier is blocked and when the drier is blocked it will start running in a vacuum causing it to spark(burn) on the inside of the compressor or could still be in a vacuum and causes it to spark when it should start.

Bosch advantixx washer drier drier only runs 5 mins then switches off

The likely answer is the motor is overheating and the auto cut-off switch activates. If you wait a while it will then start up and repeat.
The answer will probably have to be a replacement motor, but a qulified engineer may find he can clean up the motor contacts and get it running - but that may cost same or more than a new motor!

Need a diagram to change heating element and sensors

unplug the drier pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .Then while standing at the side of the drier grasp the belt with one hand and the front of the drier drum with the other and **** up sharply on the belt to release the drier drum from the rear drum bearing then remove the drum out the front on the rear you will see the heating element there will be one sensor on the heater pan that's the safety or high limit thermostat the tiny one on the drier body is the thermal overload the one on the vent at the bottom is the operating thermostat but its rare to have a problem with them if the drier is not heating the first thing i recommend is check your voltage and connections and don't assume just because its running its getting full voltage check it with a meter driers will run on 110 but will not heat without 220
