This seems to be an electric dryer so, no pilot light.
The heating element might have failed or it has a heavy current fuse that has failed.
There aren't many things that a dedicated DIYer can't do given time, a few common tools and some common sense.
Having a multimeter at home helps too; these can be had at electronics or auto parts stores and usable instruments can be had for <$20 US. Somewhat intelligible Chinglish instruction sheet is included.

Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You're dryer needs a gas valve coil kit. To replace coils just remove front of dryer body and look below drum you will see the gas valve. The valve coils are located on top of valve (two little round black cylinders). It's simple, just remove the two screws from the little metal bracket that holds them down, unplug the wires from them and just lift them straight up off of the valve. Take notice that one has 3 wires and one has 2 wires. Just replace with new coils and plug wires back in and re-fasten metal bracket. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.
