Customer: replied 6 years ago.

My wife left the Dryer door wide open for about 20 minutes after taking a load of clothes out of it. Now it won't come on. The inside light works but that is all.

the light is the only thing working?
if you listen to the timer when you have it set and the door shut do you hear it ticking?.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Yes. Sometimes.
Expert:  Appliance Tech Larry replied 6 years ago.
you are getting 110V so the timer and lights work but not getting 220V which it needs to start, run and heat, you are having problems with the breaker so cut it off, count to 30, flip back on hard and try it, if still don't work then you will need to check the outlet, cord and power block on back of the dryer, if all is fine there then you will need a hands on tech with his meters to trace out the problem, just leaving the door open will not cause this so she didn't break the dryer ,,, thanks
