Hi,

Check the broken belt switch.

Part Details - WHIRLPOOL Broken belt switch, part number: AP3094230

On your model dryer when the belt brakes it trips a switch near the belt idler.

Remove panel #27 in the driagram by removing the three (#47) screws.
You will be able to look behind the panel and see the belt around the drum, unless it's broken, then it maybe on the bottom.
