Dryer was not working. Replaced high-limit thermostat; dried a load of laundry and it worked fine. Tried another load, but drier does not work anymore. Thermostats are all fine. I am wondering if control module went out and is there a way of checking it?

Dryer was not working at all before you replaced hi limit, or just not heating? And now no running or no heating?

Sorry for the delay. The dryer was working and then it stopped putting out heat. Checked heating element and it was fine. Checked the thermostats and found hi-limit thermostat was open. Replaced the hi-limit thermostat and that fixed the problem. Dried a load of clothing and it worked fine. Tried another load and now it won't start at all. Checked all thermostats and heating element and everything checks ok. Drier is dead. Kaput. I have not yet taken any voltage measurements as I don't have schematic.

Yes,check for 220 volts to the terminal bar on the dryer.
Check the door switch for continuity.
Check the thermal fuse on the blower housing for continuity.

Thanks to all. I got the schematic and will check all items listed. Will report my findings later as I am working on other items.
