Had a brown out with dryer on at the house. Went to turn dryer back on the next day and will not start. Checked breaker-fine not tripped- checked voltage at outlet- two good legs- pulled dryer apart- checked door switch-ohms good- checked therofuses- blower fuse has 0.00 ohms, upper thermofuse-heater 0.00-lower small fuse is open. Not sue if that is the way it works-closes when heated? but will that thermofuse not let the dryer turn on at all. I figued maybe no heat if bad but the machine will not turn on at all.

Your thermofuses and thermostats should read closed when the dryer is not hot.

You mentioned you have both legs at the outlet, have you looked at the terminal block where the cord attaches on the back of the dryer? Make sure you get 120v from each leg to your neutral. Below is the diagram.

Your thermal fuse is Item 5 in the "Heater" section.

It should be 0 ohms.
