Estate Dryer wont turn on

I have an Estate Dryer that was running and it just quit no power and wont turn on. I checked the vent tube for obstructions its all clear, breaker is good power up to outlet, dryer door seems to be good and tight. The start switch is good I checked it with my tester any ideas what I can check next?

Did you check the door switch ?
Does the light (if it has one) come on when door is opened ?

Estate Dryer.....Whirlpool, Kenmore.......gas.... electric ??

Can you leave me the model number for machine so I can bring up the wiring diagram.

UNPLUG DRYER FIRST
Take of the back of dryer. Left side with usually 2 blue wires is the thermo fuse, Make sure it is not open (use meter) If open replace fuse and than clean out vent to the outside or you will have same problem again.

I'm looking for the wiring for your unit.

Here's a basic test instructional video.
