It's getting power, checked the motor, checked the door switch, check the on/off switch, checked the timer. I'm not sure what else I can check. Absolutley nothing happens besides the timer humming. Is there a sensor that might be the problem, and how do I check it/them?

Would help if we had a model number, or at least if it is gas or electric??  If it is electric check the white thermofuse on the vent housing on the back of the dryer after the back panel is removed with the dryer unplugged.  This would have blown if the air flow from the dryer was blocked to the outside. If this is a gas dryer, ignore this because if it went bad the dryer would run but not heat.

It is electric. I'm assuming by the suggestion that this would cause the symptoms I described.

How do I check it to see if it is the culprit?

Check it with an ohm meter to see if it shows good, it the needle does not move it is bad, remove the 2 wires first and be sure the dryer is unplugged.

Here's the model #: TEDS840JQ2

I don't think there is a thermofuse. The closest I could find was a sensor. As far as I can tell, there are no fuses anywhere on the dryer. Any ideas?

Checked. It is not blown. Could it be a problem with the clock? I can hear it running and the circuit is good when it is in a cycle position. Could there be another problem with it? Or something else?...

I know we haven't found the problem yet, but I'm not giving up on you in the least. You are giving really good suggestions. Thank you!

Timer feeds start switch, feeds door switch, feeds motor switch,  feeds white plastic thermofuse.   If these parts check good and do not have any bad wires, you could have a bad timer contact to the motor.  Get you a volt stick to see where exactly you are losing voltage in the motor circut. Reads right thru the insulation.  sounds like you have voltage to the dryer since the timer is humming.

Thought it might be the thermofuse. Replaced with new, didn't work. My voltage indicator shows power going to the motor, but it does not run. How do I check the motor to see if it is bad?
