Hello beeps299,
If your Electric Dryer isn't doing anything at all, I would encourage you to do a few basic checks..
First off, are you sure that the circuit breaker feeding power to the dryer hasn't tripped?
If that's OK and you are sure you have power getting to the dryer then the next thing to check would be the door interlock switch. If that is not working properly when the door shuts, that disables most other functions. The switch could be defective, the wiring that goes to it may have gotten disconnected or damaged so that is where I would start to look first....
Hope that helps.
Other things that may impact the dryer are non-resettable fuses inside but I wouldn't go that route until you've checked the basics.. Let me know what happens after your initial checks are done..

Regards,
Rick

When I push the start button, nothing happens. I have checked the breaker and the plug, both are OK. I just completed drying a load of clothes.

Not getting clothes completely dry. Bad smell


The problem is the water in the vent pipe.You will have to empty the water out of the vent pipe. If the vent is running under the house, crawl under, starting at the closest dip to the dryer and work it out to the exterior. Then use some wire or ties to secure it to the floor joists to keep the dips from reoccurring. If there is water in the pipe, then the dryer can't blow the warm, moist air out of the tumbler. It is the equivalent of trying to dry clothes in a sauna. There is nothing wrong with the dryer, it is working correctly. The problem is the vent.
