Frigidaire (Electric) Dryer won't turn on with start button.

I cannot get my frigidaire electric dryer to turn on. In the past it has been a bit on the noisy side with the occasional squeak from the back of the dryer.

When I went to do my last load of wash the dryer would not turn on when the start button was tuned. I hear a short clicking sound like it is trying to engage the dryer but it will not even attempt to turn on.

Any easy problem solving ideas or am I likely going to need an expert for this one?

Open top and in back is a dime sized thermo fuse. Ohm it out should not be open. Squeak in back is plastic bearing if not worn out ( plastic worn to medal support) you can lube it. Plastic bearing about 6.00 Dollars. Should not need the medal ball part unless very bad.
After repair you than need to clean out vent to outside or you will be doing it again
