checking through previous posts it would seem that the problem is "even heat control board"

My question:Is this this an assured diagnosis and are there probable contributing factors or  is there anything else to check before ordering this little ($187) gem.

The even heat board is a common failure, and a match to your symptoms. Get the part from Repairclinic so you could return it if not needed.

Diagnostic details on the even heat board are here:  http://fixitnow.com/...en-heat-dryers/

 

Brother nick speaketh much truth.  Here's the part link to the even heat board:  http://www.repaircli...er=110.60982990

 

Dryness-Control-Board-W10116564-00797464

 

Or to just the relay if you're able to to determine that the motor relay is bad:  http://www.repaircli...er=110.60982990

Easy way to tell is to swap it out with the heater relay and see if the motor runs normally (but the dryer won't heat).  

 

If it doesn't fix your problem, return it for a refund, even though it's been installed.

looking at the wiring diagram,

the EvenHeat Board controls the Timer Motor, not the Drum Motor

and I don't see a Relay

Good catch, Reg-- I just now checked the wiring diagram you posted and you are correct.  

 

I think saloon is looking at a bad motor:  Part number: AP3094233

Yes ,the drum turns normally when button is pressed, I have read the links suggested and will try suggested procedures,

Thanks for the input, i have my multimeter in hand and should know more in a few minutes!!

the confounded control relays and "evenheat" self destruct board,are indeed marketing genius 

now I'm confused! (that didn't take much)  did not see the "MOTOR" reference,though from a monitary point it would be a gain. I am tearing the dang beast open, check in with you a little later, thanks again.

It's for both gas and electric-- two different diagrams.

Could be the centrifugal switch in the motor is just stuck.  Try pushing the switch body near the rotor with a small flathead screwdriver to get it to disengage.
