The problem is that the dryer does not work at all. It has power and the door switch is fine. The blower duct was completely filled with lint but I cleaned it. There looks to be a sensor on the duct along with one on the heating element duct. Everything else looks to be okay but nothing happens when I try and start the dryer.

Re: Thin twin washer & dryer LT5000XS
The lint obstruction possibly caused the high limit thermo to fail. It is designed to prevent the machine from running if it gets too hot. It should be the one at the top of the drier stack. the one on the element needs to be checked for proper operation as well. this can be done with a multimeter. Be sure to unplug your machine before checking as there will be power at the connection points.

Shut elect breaker off and back on. At elect panel . Sometimes braker trips one side and stays on the other hard to tell the diff.
220. One must be on and the other off. Although they are attached . Make sure door is making contact with switch
when you open washer door you hit a stopper pin that holds the door open. there are 2 screws located around that area on both sides of panel. remove them and you'll see vent hook up and water line hook up and power cord. Now at the backside of washer door panel there are two screws remove them and pull washer door panel towards you. under the door panel connected to panel is where you will find door switch. if you jump out door switch and it works then you need new door switch.
Could you check that model number again?Could you please describe the problem you are having? Does the dryer run at all? Check the door switch. When you push and release it you should hear a click. If not, replace with a new switch.
first access the tech sheet and run any diagnostics it shows for the machine and if this passes,then check/change the fill switch on the control panel along with fill tube from the wash tub base if kinked or plugged
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.
I would also check the thermal fuse as well. it is located on the vent duct or blower housing. If this fuse is damaged or tripped, it will not allow the dryer to run as well.
First be sure you're getting power to the motor this could cause both problems. If getting power then
sounds like you have 2 problems.
On the heating problem be sure you have 220 volts at the power block, check the heating element , thermostats & high temp cutoff with an ohmmeter. Also check the centrifical switch on the motor it keeps the heat off for safety till the motor is up to speed so the fan is working.
Check lid switch some machines won't do anything but fill with the lid open . To check lid switch push the the switch down with a small screwdriver. If switch is ok check the coupler between the motor & transmission it can cause no agitate or spin. If all these are ok you may have a transmission problem. Last resort may be timer or wireing.
