Without knowing the model number of your dryer I will not be able to provide any specific information. It could be one many possible failures preventing your dryer from starting:


Door switch

Voltage supply

Thermal fuse

Broken belt

Loose or burnt wire connection

I recommend resubmitting your question with the model number for specific information and troubleshooting tips.
