Why won't the dryer start after my shoe got stuck in the drum?

I have a Kenmore dryer model number 110.85087400. My shoe got stuck in the drum of the dryer, the front part of the dryer where the wheel turns. Now when I try to turn it on, the lights all come on and you can select what you want but when you push the start button it just clicks.

Yeah, actually the same thing happened. I tried to dry some of my shoes, the drum got jammed, and it shut off. I unplugged the dryer and plugged it back in and it didn't work at first. I unplugged it and was searching the internet, took my shoes outside to dry, got a number for a family friend repairman and was about to call him when I searched the internet one last time. I came across this, saw that "rob rood" just plugged in the dryer again, and so I went and plugged it in again and it works now lol. So unplug the dryer, let it sit for a while, then plug it back in. Worked for me. It's worth a try before taking things apart. :D
