From the description you give I suspect the house circuit breakers to the dryer tripped.

It is possible for one of the breakers to tripped leaving the dryer 120 volts to run with but not have 240 volts to heat with.

The dryer will have two breakers and I suggest each be turned off and then back on to see if there is any improvement.

The dryer itself has a thermal fuse. On the electric dryer if the thermal fuse is open then the dryer will not run at all.

The thermal fuse usually only blows when the dryer is running and I would not expect it to blow when the dryer was not running.

The images below may help you with this problem.

Make some checks and send a reply for further assistance with this problem.

The only fuse on the dryer that might keep it from running is the thermal fuse located on the blower exhaust behind the rear panel. I wouldn't expect a power failure to cause the thermal fuse to fail. More likely you should check the circuit breaker. The dryer has two breakers and it is possible for one to trip leaving the dryer 120 volts to run the motor but not have 240 volts for heating. Flip the two dryer breaker off and then on to see if there is any improvement.
