Thanks for the question.

It was not taking longer. It just stopped working when we tried a second load. It doesn't make any sound at all It is dead

Open the door and remove the screws that hold the top on and lift the top up # XXXXX is a thermo fuse that will cause that problem.Unplug the dryer and join and tape the two wires to this part , now try the dryer if it starts up replace the hi limit thermo.
