Try unplugging it for 5 minutes to reset it, then plug it back in. Remember an electric dryer runs off of two 110 lines in the USA. So throw both breakers at the breaker box to be sure it's getting full power.

Your drum light is not a good indication that the door switch is working. Actually, if your door switch is not working, your drum light will not receive any power. Check the wiring diagram on your original question.

What symptoms does your dryer have? What have you tied so far? What have you checked?


If you already checked all the parts and found them to be in working condition, I recommend a new control panel assembly.


How do you test a control panel board, My unit has exact same problem and board loos to the eye as good as new. Control board is expensive $180 on Amazon, though it is an easy repair. But costly if that is not the problem.
