Yup - that's the perpetrator! I plugged it in and the dryer fired up w/o problem!

Resolution....  Door contact switch was the problem!  Advice from the novice - don't be fooled by the timer countdown or the little blinking dot in the timer window.  Somehow, the part can fail in such a way that the dryer won't turn, but some of the electronics thinks it's OK.  Lesson learned! :tongue:



PS  Thanks again for all the help folks - it is truly appreciated!!!

Ran diagnostics again for confirmation - identical responses with both the new and old boards = no drum rotation and no heat.  R3 (dryer door) ~ 16k, R2 (heater) ~27k - dryer is in the cool garage, so I'm not that surprised that the resistance is higher than the spec.  Can't find R4 on the schematics...  One thing I did notice is that if I rotate the auto-cycle knob to damp dry, the number 16 appears on the display.  Can't find any reference to "damp dry" being a test, so I don't know what I have in that number...  Beer:30...

Thanks PDuff!  I will check resistances tonight... I already tried the red button - no clicky there, but I will give the thermistors/thermocouples another look... :thanks:
