Here are your parts
Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL WED6400SW1 29`` ELECTRIC DRYER | AppliancePartsPros.com

Here is a manual
Whirlpool 8178584 Cabrio Dryer Service Manual - ApplianceDigest.com

You will have to join the site to get the manual.

I am assuming that the interior light works and everything else looks normal.

If yes then I would check:
1. Belt switch - could be just a broken belt.
2. The thermal fuse - if it is blown clean/check your vent system as this is the most common cause of it blowing.

Note: The parts breakdown does not show a thermal fuse while the manual does (Page 5-2). I do not know which is correct.
