If the dryer does nothing when you press start, you either have a bad fuse or a bad door switch. Open the door and push the door switch. If it still clicks then it's good. If it doesn't click then you need to replace it. Other than that there is a fuse on the back of the dryer that has likely gone back. Below is a video that shows you how to access and test the fuse. If the fuse doesn't have continuity then replace it.
