Hello. The dryer should be on #10 wire fused at 30 amps.
Having 40 amp fuses will not keep the dryer from working. They should be regular fuses but even time delay fuses will not stop the dryer from operating. If you have a meter to test the fuses you should have 240 volts at the dryer. If the voltage is correct you will know there is a problem in the dryer. Let me know everything that happens. Does the dryer run? Is it totally dead?
If the interior light works the control should light up because it is on the same side of the power line. It proves that the one house fuse is good. If you take out the fuses and swap them side to side and the dryer runs but does not heat you will know that one of the fuses is bad. If the problem is the same you have a problem in the dryer. Possibly the control but more testing with a meter is needed.
As long as the fuses are good there will be no charge under warranty.
