plumber, pop the top on the dryer by pushing on the two clips just under the top on each side. In the back you will see the heater. You want to check the high limit thermostat (this one sits on the top side of the heater) and the thermal fuse (sits on the side about 4 inches down. Unplug the dryer and check them with a meter. If either shows open (no continuity) replace them. Make sure your venting is not clogged up and the heater is not grounded or fractured. Part number for the high limit is 53-0771 and for the thermal fuse is LA-1053. Check these first...Catriver...post back. Unable to find your exact model, but I do have cye4000ayw. parts should be the same.

If you have nothing going what so ever, there is a fuse that is possibly blown that is attached to the heater housing on the back part of the shell. The fuse part number is LA-1053 and cost is 18.95 retail. There are also 2 thermostats that are recommended to be replaced at the same time, hi limit thermostat part number is 53-0771 and cost is 29.75 located on the heater housing also, and the control thermostat located on the motor housing part number 31001192 and the cost to you 22.11. If you can't find these parts at a dealer locally, I suggest calling Marcone Appliance Parts warehouse at 1-800-482-6022. The part numbers and costs are from there inventory. If you would like to see parts breakdowns and wiring diagram, please send me an e-mail to email@example.com and I will be glad to forward pictures to you with highlighted parts info you need.
Please rate this suggestion fix-it if you are statisfied with these results.

Check the circuit breakers for the dryer first. Remember when you reset the breaker, to turn it all the way to the OFF position firmly and then back on.

YOU NEED TO POP THE TOP UP BY GETTING A FLAT SCREWDRIVER OR SOMETHING IN THE GAP UNDER THE LID.
ONCE YOU GOT THE TOP OFF THERE SOULD BE TWO SCREWS HOLDING THE FRONT ON.

There is a thermal fuse inside the dryer usually located behind the back cover on the upper part of the combustion chamber. When this fuse "blows" it turns off power to the whole dryer. This keeps your house from burning to the grown, and you from dying. The fuse "blows" for a reason, most likely to is lint build-up in the dryer and/or dryer vent system. The good new it only cost a few dollars to get a new one. The bad news is you need to find out why it "blew", the dryer got to hot for a reason.
