Question about Dryers
This can obviously be several things, but I would first check the small safety thermostat. On the gas models, there is a small pin sticking out of it which can be pushed back in to reset it. It is located on the heater housing and is only about the size of a dime, with two wires on it. This will trip out easily if your vent was not clean, or is long or restricted in some ways (like using flex ducting)
If you need more help getting to it, let me know and I'll give you more instructions.

If this is a GE/Hotpoint dryer then I can tell you exactly what it is. The rear drum bearing is worn down. WE3X75. To replace it you must remove the drum. This involves opening the door and removing all screws holding down the top. Then removing those holding the front on. Then removing the drum itself. This is not a hard job for a mechanically inclined indiviual.

I had the same problem with mine. My wrinkle free setting some how got turned off. As soon as I turned that back on machine kept running and dried the clothes fine.

take elements to a dealer and have them checked, unless you have a digital multimeter and can DIY.Otherwise get a replacement element

You will have to ensure the tub belt is not broken or off the motor pulley. Also, you may have a bad push to start switch or door closed switch. Open door and manual hold in door switch and have someone to push the start button if there is any sound or attempt to start these switchs are most likely good and your problem is with the belt. Hope this helps God Bless
