first thing to do is open the door hold the switch closed and try to turn it on at the same time turnong the drum by hand,if the drum turns there could be a couple of this wrong.
the first thing is the motor has alot of lint build up around and in it this can be clean with a vaccum,there will be a small access panel on the bottom left side of the dryer in the rear remove the pane and you can see the motor.if the motor is clean and free of lint then you might have a bad start winding in the motor and needs to be replace.if the motor still does not turn then you may need to replace the start switch.good luck with your dryer i hope this helps you out.

Try holding the door switch lever in and turning the drum hard by hand. It sounds like you have a start switch out in the motor.
