Has power, can not start dryer, no response from any switch
The only light on the panel is 8.8 in the center. It is getting power, door light goes off/on , will not respond to any of the control buttons. No trouble prior to this except, the time sensor sometimes would increase the amount of time up to 98. My finger slipped off the button and it reset to a lower time and has sice been OK.

However test this : No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.
are you sure the switch on the door is working properly has this been checked properly if so the probelm could be with the motor as the build up of lint could cause it to over heat therefore blowing something on the board this will need to be checked you will need to check that you have got power going to the motor and the correct amount of power myself i would have said replace the switch on the door but if you are sure you have checked this then the problem could be the motor or the board that powers the motor check all conectionsand look to see if you can see any areas that look like it has over heated if you have a resistance testor you could check the board if not you will need to go to a repair shop and get them to test the board and motor for you hope this is some help
Sounds like a problem with the door switch. Open the door and look at the front of the dryer. In the center of the dryer, just under the controll panel, you should see a hole in the machine. On the door it self you should see a stud that will line up with the hole. If the stud is broken off the switch can't be activated and the door must be replaced. If the stud is O.K. then insert a PLASTIC ink pen in the hole while you press start. If the dryer starts either the door is not closing properly or the mount for the door switch is craked inside
unplugg dryer,take the 2 wires off of door switch connect them together with electrical tape,plugg dryer back in hit start switch dryer should come on ,that tells you that the switch is bad,this can also done with a tester
does the light close when the door is closed??? poosible that the door switch has gone bad. or a bad thermal fuse behind the unit is also a common culprit of this.. its a white thermostat on back of unit behind the panel (-----------------------) approx this long ad white,,
Sounds as if the door switch is the problem. This is normally a safety switch that stops the dryer when the door is opened.
Unplug the dryer.
Remove the door switch and check the switch condition with a continuity meter after removing the wires. Try turning the switch on and off....the meter should read power on and off when you do that.
You may have to remove the front of the dryer to get to the door switch.
I hope this helps
