Of course we do, and we know how to repair them too....

Of course it has a plug. The gas only runs the burner. Electricity runs the drum, timer, gas valve etc. There will be a gas shutoff where it connects to the gas line at the wall. Close that. Don't disconnect any hoses.

disconnect any hoses of any kind going from the dryer to the wall

Unplug it. L

Look at it logically. Is it still running completely ? Is only the burner lit ? Is it just turning ?

Hard to diagnose except by going through the whole thing with a wiring diagram and a continuity meter...
