What does the dryer do after it shuts off and you try to restart? Does it hum or is it just quiet?

No response after it shuts off. No noise etc. I have noticed that there is some water leaking from the knobs and water on the floor as well.

Possibly you vent is full of water! This is a common problem if your vent is clogged. Check your vent and make sure it is clean all the way outside. chuck
