Don't think I have power to the dryer

Check the 50 amp plug and it seems like no power it getting to the plug. The circuit breaker did not trip either. Any other problems I could be missing?

exercise the breaker. Sometimes they trip but the handle does not move.
If using a DMM does not indicate power at recp, then you likely have a bad connection. check all connections(power off)

Check for power at the load side of the breaker,
Could be a faulty breaker.
If there is power on one side of the breaker, (supply side).
But no power on the load side, then it has tripped,
or it is faulty.
