If you mean that it is not heating and stays cool, most likely the pilot sensing thermocouple needs replacing (if you have a gas drier with a pilot light) or the electronic ignition contacts need replacing (if you have a gas drier with electronic ignition). Not sure about an electric drier, but probably the heating element needs replacing, or the thermocouple sensor (most likely). None of these are very expensive.
it probably has a glow plug not a pilot, tun on the drier and watch for 15 seconds to see if a glow is visible, Not knowing the year or type of drier makes this hard to reply to, but if you do see no glow,, check the main fuse (thermo) at the rear of the unit and replace
