Yep.
It wasn't the belt.
Still dead.
Is there a part I need?  Does anyone know?

You got to tell us why you change to belt is it because it was broke you thought it would fix a dead dryer?Did you plug in door switch after you got front panel on?Thermal fuse is a common part and will make dryer drop dead and you can check that with a volt ohmmeter.Also make sure you have proper voltage. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-dryer-thermal-fuse-3392519-ap3132867.html

Some times you can use a spring clamp like this one: http://m.homedepot.com/p/HDX-2-in-Spring-Clamp-80002/100027346/
Slip it to the back on the felt.
