Turn your dryer breaker off and back on first then try the dryer. If that doesn't work get an ohm meter, remove the rear panel and check the thermostats and the heater element for continuity. The part without continuity is the part you will need to replace.

Nat, this is a gas dryer, not electric!!! On this one, you have to remove the lint filter, and take the 2 phillip head screws out, and then, slide a putty knife under the top on the right side about 3 inches from the end to release the top, and then do the same on the other side. There are clips under there that release the top. Once done, push thhe top back and rest it on the back wall. Then to remove the front, you look inside the front, up top about 4 inches down and there will be a 5/16 screw. Remove it and the one on the other side. Then lean the front towards you, and remove the door switch wires and then pull the top of the front up, kind of hard and quick on the right, and that will release the bottom of the front from the cabinet on that side, and do the same on the other side. Then remove the front. That will get you to the gas parts. But, what I would do first is check the thermal fuse it could be bad. Take the back off, and you will see a white part about an inch and a half long, and a half inch wide, and one screw will be holding it in place, and it will have 2 wires coming to it. Take the 2 wires off of it, and put the terminal ends together, and put some tape around it so it does not hit metal and then plug it in and give it a try. If it works, DO NOT use the dryer with the fuse jumped out. this is for TESTING ONLY!!! It is the only part that stops the dryer from burning down the house. Let me know what you find.
