Wild guess the dryer is overloaded, Or too hot and needs to cool down. There are temp sensors that will prevent starting when too hot. You may have drive belt or fan problems exhaust pipe clog.

Sounds like a broken belt to me. This would be the belt that wraps around the drum and motor. You will need to remove the lower front cover ( 2 small screws ) and look with a flashlight to see if the belt is broken or came off of the motor pulley. Most likely it's broken. It's a pretty easy repair. the lower front panel screws are pointed towards the floor so they're kind of hidden a little at an angle.

The heating element is located in the bottom left corner. You will need to remove the drum for access. Once you have the drum out of the way, look for a square box with wires attached. There are 10mm fasteners that hold the heating element to the vent. Rome the screws, mark the wires and positions then remove the heating element. Before replacing the element make sure the thermal fuse and the high limit switches are not faulty.

Make sure the dryer is plugged into the outlet.
Make sure the dryer door is completely shut
Make sure the breaker has been tripped ( look at your electrical panel )
After checking all of those try it again.
If no luck pull the power cord out of the outlet
remove the front cover and check the door limit switch. should be a normal closed switch meaning that the switch will make continuity when it is depressed. if the switch is good I'm thinking the motor has failed. Mine did this and I replaced the motor and it's been running every since.

Check out Searspartsdirect.com I found the parts manual. They did not have a user's manual.

Are you overloading it? It sounds like a belt issue!

A bad drum bearing will do both.

This probably the easiest dryer to work on. The heating element is mounted on the rear left hand side and is held to the back wall with 2 screws. The limits fuses and element are all mounted on the heating element. 6dce3526-c552-4e91-8bc9-74c3ca2335ef.jpg

You need to replace the door switch. Here is the part to order.
There is a video on that same page to show you how to make the repair.

The control thermostat on the blower housing is the one you need to change if it is getting too hot. It is taking too long to shut off the element. The only other thing it could be is a blocked vent making it overheat. The fuse is set for 350f the limit on the element is a 250 f one. I suspect the 250 f limit on the element is doing the drying not the control stat. Hence you getting overheat but not hot enough to blow the fuse.

Most likely tour blower is slipping. It might be tossing out air but not enough. These dryers are notorius for having bad blower wheels.
To get into it kill the power and raise the top using a putty knife to release the top clips then get the front off and inspect the filter housing for lint. Their will be a big ball of lint. Grab the blower wheel and wiggle. If it is loose you will be able to tell.Hear is my crappy phone video:

Hi Albert

Your problem sounds like the drum rollers have flat spots on them or in need of lubrication, or maybe your drum belt has slipped off of the idler arm pulley.

Note: This method works with most front loading machines.

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer if you have to.
Note: Some tops hinge and tilt backwards so they do not have to be removed and the electrical console with stay with the lid.
Also remove the lint filter and the screws holding the lint filter housing in place.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing two screws located on either side of the top of the dryer housing and unplug the door switch.
This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.Now is a good time to replace the front felt seal on the drum if it needs to be replaced. Be sure to use a good grade of weatherproof cement on the seal to glue it to the drum, sometimes the glue is furnished with the seal.
Now is also a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear they will make a thumping type of noise.
If your drum rollers have too much wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them and are only squeeling then they probably only need lubrication.
Remove the rollers and clean the shafts that the roller rolls on, remove any hair,dust,etc from roller and shaft.
Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil, or a light lubricant like Vaseline.
Reassemble the dryer.
Plug back into your electrical receptical.
This should solve your noise problem.

This is a fairly simple dryer. I bet you have something simple like a partially blocked outside vent. Maybe snow partially blocking the outlet?
