This could be one or two things, it could be the safety switch located in door that activates the turning of the dryer. Or it could be a belt that turns the drum the motor could be turning inside and belt is broken.

Samsung snh9151b no power all thermal fuse and ceramic fuse checked good but still no power

Faulty door switch, Open dryer door, see if light comes on inside the dryer. If it does the door switch is good. If it doesn’t try resetting the breaker. *( dryer bulbs burn out) you may want to replace the bulb if light doesn’t come on before proceeding forward)
The start switch is another cause. You will have to unplug the dryer to check continuity.
A broken drum belt.
Turn timer on a cycle and listen for it making a ticking sound. You should as the timer is the least likely to fail, from my experience.

Dryer won't start after I push the Start button

If it is whirlpool--Make sure it has power. Then:Check the door switch. A little lever sticking down through top rightof door opening. If it is not there you will need new doorswitch(sometimes the little lever breaks off). If it is there and doesnot click when you press it in you need a new door switch. if it clicks when you close the door then you have a bad thermal fuse.The thermal fuse is found by taking the back of the dryer off. The fuse is an oblong white plastic piece with 2 wires attached.

Door switch part number 3406109
Thermal fuse part number 3392519

Doesn't stop

The problem is probably the plunger switch that you press to start the dryer. If you select the OFF position and then move the dial to a cycle, does it start running without you having to press the start button? If so, that switch is your problem.

If you disconnect the dryer and remove the rear panel, you can unplug the switch and repair it yourself (the contacts probably just need to be adjusted) or you can replace it. Depending on the dryer you might be able to get the part number from the inside cover of the rear panel.
