Your dryer doesnt have a fuse. Your home breaker panel is the only protection it has..Check your circuit breaker box for a tripped breaker.

Assuming that the fuses you speak of are the external pair, and not the internal motor or timer resets:
Check the fuse holder for corrosion on the plates. Often the fuse is not properly seated because of this build-up and therefore has an intermittent connection. This will cause the fuse to either heat up, or overload; ultimately failing.
To remedy this, turn OFF the breaker, or main switch if necessary, and fix a wooden dowel with a piece of emery cloth (or sand paper) on the end. Remove any visible black corrosion from the contact plates.
Finish with a spray of WD40 to protect the plates and fuse end.
Replace the fuse, ensuring that it's tight, reinstate power and try again.

The heater element may have failed - however, first check the Thermal limit fuse on the rear of the machine (silver disc held by 2 screws). Check for continuity.

The fuse is white about 1/2 inch wide and 1 1/2 inch long.. we think.. not a normal looking fuse. There is one screw holding it on, and you kind of have to slide it up and out.
