Okay great, 99% of the time the thermal fuses what blows and therefore the dryer will not start, do you have a voltmeter and know how to use it to check continuity? If you click on this blue link it will take you to a you can order the part and also has a video to show you how to test it. this is located on the blower housing behind the panel underneath the door, there is an access panel you need to remove the screws and then the access panel to get to this. Make sure you unplug the dryer before doing any servicing. # XXXXX on this diagram is this panel. and the thermal fuse is # XXXXX on this one, I hope this helps, thanks and best wishes, Bryan
