ok you probably have a bad thermal fuse in the dryer itself, this is a common failer on these, Part 2986this is located on the blower and you can test it bu removing the 2 wires and puuting them together taping them and try the dryer, if it starts replace this dont leave it jumped out its a safety, thanks Bryan
