Model 110.8482.1300 (Kenmore Elite H3 Dryer...White)

While drying a load of clothes, #2 son opened dryer to see what was in it...many towels....maybe too many.
Closed the door, pushed the button, lights, clicks, nuthin.

I've done the following:

Re-set the circuit breaker (though it had not tripped)
Checked the venting (ok)
Downloaded the handy-dandy-nifty neato instructions for the duetdry
Checked the Thermal Fuse (ok)
Looked at all the connections I could find (ok)
Checked the thermistor best as I could (followed the directions anyway),,,seems ok
Pulled the motor and checked that (also tests ok...however...)
Checked the door switch (ok)

Not sure what to do next or how to test.

Could it be the belt switch? How do I test that?
Could it be the motor, even though it appeared to test ok using the ohmmeter?
Do I need to test the controller?

Many thanks.

While someone pushes the Start Button,
check for 120v AC between
each Terminal of the white Thermal Fuse to chassis (ground)

Do I need it plugged in when I do that?

I'm thinking yes, but don't want to have power coursing through it needlessly.

... Do I need it plugged in when I do that?

well, there wouldn't be 120v AC at those Terminals without the Dryer plugged in ...

Well, that works too.

After much frustration I called a repairman who diagnosed the problem for $10.

Needs a new control board.

Thanks for all the info and help this site provides. Has saved me many $$ over the past 10 years.

Did your repairman check the thermal fuse???....$10.00 for a service call..( that does not even cover the cost for fuel for a service call, for me any way) ...you may get what you pay for............That aside.........the control board lists for $285 including core charge.
