tripped?
Replace the fuse or reset the circuit breaker. There may be
2 household fuses or circuit breakers for the electric dryer.
Check that both fuses are intact and tight, or that both circuit
breakers have not tripped. If the problem continues, call an
electrician.

power supply available?

No heat
Has a household fuse blown, or has a circuit breaker
tripped?
The drum may be turning, but you may not have heat. Electric
dryers use 2 household fuses or breakers. Replace the fuse

If the dryer hasn't been used for a while, there may be a
thumping sound during the first few minutes of operation.

and front or rear of the dryer?
Check the front and rear edges of the drum for small objects.
