That doesn't help. There should be a label somewhere with model number and serial number. May be behind door.

Check that you have power at the receptacle. If good, check continuity on the door switch and check operation (continuity when pressed) of the start switch. If good, open control panel and check that you have 120vac to ground on timer switch BU terminal with timer on. If good, remove back panel and check continuity of the thermal fuse on the blower housing. Left side with the two blue wires on it. Report findings.
