Do you have a model number located inside the door way? And is the dryer completely dead or do you have lights/sounds? etc...

No sound. It just happened over night. Model: NED4600YQ1

OK so the fist thing you want to do is make sure the dryer is getting correct power from your house. Flip the breaker off and back on. Then if it still won't start, pull the dryer out and test power between the 2 outside power wires on the power cord where it attaches to the back of the dryer on the terminal block. If you have 220 volts, then you're definitely getting power.

The next thing you want to do is open the door and push the door switch to make sure it still clicks. If it doesn't click, it needs to be replaced. Other than that, most likely you just have a bad fuse. This model is made by Whirlpool because Whirlpool bought out Amana in 2006 so the fuse is mounted on the back of the dryer just above the exhaust exit vent. Below is a link to a video that shows you how to access the fuse and test it as well as a link to the fuse if you wanted to order and replace it yourself.
