If you hear a loud humm when you tried to start the dryer then you probably have a bad motor. If you did not then you have most likely blown your thermal fuse. It is a small white fuse on the back just above the heater. You should replace this and your dryer will work again. There are several other possibilities for this issue so let me know if you have any other problems. Thanks. MCA0824@aol.com
