You more than likely blew your thermal fuse from machine over heating. If your venting is either the plastic or foil flexible type you need to replace with a solid type of venting, because the former types cause the machine to over heat. Also make sure that you don't have a faulty door switch. But before tearing the machine apart make sure that you have proper voltage coming into the machine.

Dryer stop working has power going to all parts

Check the continuity of the thermal fuse, often the culprit. Also check the power relay. Sorry but I am not familiar with the Estate dryers. But the above are two common problems in a wide variety of electric dryers.

Dryer stopped working - cye4000AYW

The answer is likely yes. Look on the back of the dryer, for an open hole that seems to serve no purpose. using a flashlight, peer inside this hole, and any others like it, and look for some sort of button.
Also make sure power is disconnected before doing any of this.

Dryer stop working

Check the breaker for the dryer power. The breaker may have tripped or lost half of the power supply.

Dryer stopped- not fuse

are you sure you have power to unit? first check for 240volts @dryer receptacle,then you could have either power wires or the neutral wire inside dryer burned off or broken, if it has an electronic control panel there is an electronic protection fuse to protect controls from surges

Whirpool dryer stopped working

Check the following to combat this issue.

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

It should just mean "Power Failure". Restart your dryer. Does your house loose power a lot? Or just the dryer. Check your power to the dryer.

Check to see if power cord is loose at connection inside dryer. ONLY after UNPLUGING! Held on by three screws inside.
