Hello from JA
My name is Woody.
I will be glad to assist you today.
I have been servicing ALL Major Brands of Appliances for 35 Years,
and have over 100,000 in home repairs and over 80,000 internet repairs under my belt.

Do you have a volt-Ohm meter to be able to test the voltage to the dryer or any of tit`s components?

What do I need to check?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

First check the terminal block in the rear where the cord attaches to the unit do you have 240 on Red to black?

And 120 from Red to white and 120 from black to white?

Have you opened the top to see if the belt is broken?

This model has a broken belt switch ,if the belt is broken or off the motor /idler pulley the dryer will not start.
