Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be helping. Do you have a electrical multi meter?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
No
Expert:  Sean F. replied 8 months ago.

Without a meter you won't be able to test any of the electrical parts on the dryer.

Only thing I can suggest is to go back into the dryer to make sure nothing came lose.

I am doing that now.

O.K. If you don't find anything wrong. Do you have a friend that has a meter you can use in a day or so.

I would make sure that you breaker is not tripped.

Also look at where the cord comes into the dryer that wires are not burnt.
