If it's an electric dryer, then unplug the machine and check for a blown thermal fuse or a faulty heating element. The thermal fuse is about an inch long and is located inside the rear of the dryer, usually attached to or near the exhaust duct. The thermal fuse and heating element can be tested for continuity using a multimeter or ohmmeter. A lack of continuity will indicate a bad component. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

    If it is a gas dryer, then the first thing to check is to see if the ignitor is working. If the ignitor is working properly then it should glow visibly. If the ignitor is not glowing, then it can be checked using a multimeter or ohmmeter and testing continuity. A lack of continuity would indicate a faulty ignitor. If the ignitor seems to be operating properly, then the next possible cause would be faulty gas valve coils. These electrical coils are right above the gas valves and when energized these solenoids open the gas valves and permit gas flow to the burner. If faulty the gas valve do not open and the burner cannot light. It is recommended that if any coils are suspected of being faulty, that both (all) be replaced at the same time and they will most likely come from the parts supplier as a set. Really sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.
