So unfortunately there are only 2 things that can cause the dryer to act completely dead if you're certain the dryer is getting 220 volts from the house. No fuses will cut out the control panel. That means you either have a bad from display board, or a bad relay control board. Now the front display board is all low voltage. You can test power between the BLACK and YELLOW wires going to the front display board and you should have 5 volts DC. If not, then replace the main relay board above the drum against the side wall. If you do have 5 volts and the front display doesn't light up, you need to replace that entire front display control panel.
