Had to change out an even heat board on a Kenmore/Wirlpool dryer. Start button had to be continually press in order for the dryer drum to spin, and not heating. Opened control panel, found microcomputer burnt, along with a capacitor. I don't remember the model number other than it started with 110. I have a picture below to look at. Mabey it will help someone recognize the board. Thank you, Brokenarrow.

They changed the part number on the even heat boards cause whirlpool was having lots of problems with them ......   The 2 most common with the whirlpool sears models are   3978955   that model will have indicator lights at top and the part changes over to a  8546223  

The other model # has no idicator lights at the top and uses the 3978954   that crosses over to a 8546229.....  I have done a ton of these as they seem to be more common   also   becareful before ya rush to change the even heat board   always check the relays and see that you have about 34 volts DC to the small wires  and then tag a Nuetral and check for 120v on both sides of the relay ....  alot of times the relay will get ya......   As far as why the boards were bad   probably cause the lowest bidder makes the piece of crap board.... but the new boards seem better....
