    If the light inside the dryer isn't coming on, then that usually means that you don't have power coming into the dryer. You can check the power at the outlet with a voltmeter, you should get 220-240 volts between each of the hot sides. With the dryer unplugged, I would also check the terminal block (where the power cord attaches to the dryer) and make sure you don't have any burnt off wires in that area.
