control lights are dim, dryer will not power up/run

Have 124 VAC across control board transformer. Have 15 Vac out of transformer two locations.

The casual and Timed dry led,s are lit dimly.

Estimated time remaining has small 11 displayed dimly.

Air dry led is lit dimly.

Kenmore 110.85871400

Ser # MS 1504872

Type DADT-ELE-2406028-E254

I do not have electrical schematic.

Would this be a bad control board?

Update (10/31/2016)

This is a duet HE4, will these schematics and diagnostics work for this model.

I replaced the control board on the side of the machine, no change.

Pressed all buttons and none seem stuck.

Ribbon cables look ok.

Thinking about changing the front control unit.

@eddie123456789 double check the voltage on the wiring harness to ensure that you 240V going into the machine. Reset your household panels breaker for the dryer. After that consider to run the diagnsotic test as pointed out in the manual from L Pfaff


when lights are on and dim you cant get into diagnostic mode when they are off the machine runs great ?
