Takes a PhD to get that thing out without breaking it. The good news: I found the electric control panel. The bad news: I still haven't got the switch disconnected and I'm getting tired and cranky. I'll try again tomorrow with a fresh start.

If you have the correct power, thermal fuse,  thermal cutoff, belt switch and door switch are testing ok you need a tech to come and run some tests with your control board to determine if a new one is necessary.

sounds like a bad motor relay to me, put your meter across the blue and black wires on the 2 pin connector on the main board, when the dryer is not "running" you should see 120v when your "start" the dryer it should drop to 0, if it dosent drop the relay is bad and u need a new main control
