I have an kenmore 80 series dryer and it stoped all of a sudden. I cleaned out the duct system, when I press the start button no sound.

If the belt has broken the belt safety switch will shut the dryer down and it will not start.

You can verify easily if you have a broken belt by manually trying to move the drum. If the drum turns and the motor does not move then either the belt is really worn or has broken which would activate the belt safety switch.

You did not mention if you checked the circuit breakers for the dryer so that is on the to do list also.

Additionally if the dryer got too hot there is a one time fail thermistor that will have to be replaced before the dryer will operate again.

Thermistors fail due to clogged airflow in following areas:

the vent ducting,

the lint filter,

air passages around the lint filter

or the outside thru the wall vent flapper assy.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Simpson Sirocco 350 Dryer not heating

there is an oval cover on the back of the dryer. Remove this cover and you will probably find a broken fan belt. A replacement costs about $20 Aus.

NOTE: If you have been using the dryer for a while in this condition there will certainly be moisture inside the dryer. Replace the belt and leave the dryer for a few days to dry itself out (motor and electricals) before firing it up.
