GE Dryer won't start...

Hi,

I have a GE DBXR453 electric dryer that stopped and now refuses to start. There seems to be no power, but I can't figure out why. The inside light doesn't turn on, and nothing is responsive in any way. Here is what I have checked so far:
  • Checked power at the outlet and rear panel with multimeter. All readings normal.
  • Checked the high limit fuse for continuity.
  • Checked the safety for continuity.
  • Checked the door switch.
  • Checked the start switch.
  • Checked the timer.

Any ideas? The only thing I haven't checked is the motor, but it isn't worth the money to replace anyway. Any other suggestions?

Solved

Yes, the belt was fine. At that point I had the whole thing mostly disassembled to get to those other parts. In putting it back together, it now work. Must have been a loose connection is my guess. Thanks anyway!
