  1. Hello kimmyja, there is NOT a reset button on the dryer. If the dryer operates on 220 volts, I recommend locating the two house circuit breakers dedicated for the dryer. Reset both circuit breakers by flipping them both OFF and ON 2-3 times and then see if the dryer will power up and start. If it's 120 volt dryer (gas), you can connect some other small appliance in the wall outlet like a lamp or drill in order to confirm if the wall outlet has voltage or not. If it doesn't, locate the house breaker for the dryer and reset it. If it does not power up, the power outage/power surge has likely damaged the electronic control board. I highly recommend calling Sears at scheduling a service appointment. You can schedule service online with Sears Home Services or by calling 1-800-4-MY-HOME.
