Check the circuit breaker for the dryer. There are 2 of them side by side with their handles joined. Sometimes one will trip but not the other. This stops the heating element but not the rest of the dryer.

Hello Mwagner, sounds like the Idler bearing pulley assembly has come loose from the belt. It's job is to keep tension on the belt so the motor is able to turn the dryer drum. By watching some videos online it seems that alot of teardown is required to get to the part you need to inspect and or replace. Here is a link for you to look at that might help you.

timed cycle mean dryer not on sensor dry mode. check wire connection on moisture sensor bars (i think you forget to put 2 wire connector put together). when you use other cycle dryer use moisture sensor to dry cloths so sensor not working dryer will stop in 5 minutes or so because dryer think there are no wet cloths to dry. hope this help you.

if the wearing strips that support the drum are worn it will cause the front of the drum to sag leaving a gap between the seal and the drum where the bulkier items will get trapped and tear. If the strips are worn away then you will get metal to metal contact between the lip of the drum and the body of the drier which will wear the lip of the drum to a knife edge that will shred your laundry items. A good DIY'er should be able to replace the wearing strips for you. Hope this helps explain the problem.
