WED5100SQ0 and when I set the timer the heating element turns on, however, when I hit the start button the clothes dryer does not tumble. I checked the clothes dryer belt and it is fine. There is no noise when I hit start button on my clothes dryer and it does not turn on or start. What can be wrong?

It sounds like a problem with the motor or motor switch. A start switch is mounted on the front of the motor. It could be stuck in the “run” position because the heater element should not have power unless the motor is running and that motor switch is tripped.
I would take it apart and see if the motor has a lot of lint build-up around it making the start switch stick.
