Well new motor came in and installed...Same friggin issue. Does ANYBODY know or are able to find out WHAT the diag code 09 means when the start button is pressed? As a side note the old motor Does test bad but not sure if it is a cause or an effect of what is wrong.

Have you examined the control board to see if it has a burned solder joint for the motor relay. Also what about a burned door switch?

OK...Drum, belt and ALL rollers and tensioner spin freely. Tension on belt is such that moving the blower fan will turn drum. Resistance thru motor circuit shows 1.6 to 1.8 ohm. Test of touch panel START button inconclusive. ALL touch switches test dead at the connector, (unplugged from panel), even those known to be good. Incoming power 110V on both legs. Which connectors do I use to test voltage out put of control panel?

So you did Test 5 on the tech sheet and none of the touchpad LEDs lit up? No beeping heard? No error codes?

Control diags all to spec with exception of the Start button and it returned a code "09" instead of either of the stated codes "03" or "05".

There is just brief voltage surge on the motor circuit when start button is pressed, can feel a relay "click" then nothing. Since I've already replaced the motor, if it ain't the control panel then it's the trash for the shell and ebay for the rest.

from the tech sheets:

"If pressing any of the above touchpads does not result in the correct action, refer to TEST #5, page 7."

Measure the output of the control board at P1-4 (light blue wire) when you press the start button. Expected reading is 120vac. Place red lead on P1-4, black lead on P1-2 (white wire).

When start is pressed registers briefly less than 2 volts then nothing. Doesn't mater if button is held or pressed and released.
