Ok, Jeff, I see you have a front loader, electric. On this model we have inlet thermistors, outlet thermistors, and the sensor bars are non serviceable, which means they are part of the blower housing. Not a big deal. Let's put it into a test mode and test the voltage drop of the sensors. They are on the inside of the drum just below the vent gate. 2 bars. Unplug the dryer for 30 seconds. Plug it back in and within 10 seconds press in this order: signal button, delay start, signal button again and delay start again. The consol should show t01. This is test 1. You want to turn the main dial clockwise until the test shows t09, this will be the sensor test. With the drum dry it should show around 5 volts DC. Now take a wet rag and place it over the bars, the display should show a voltage drop to around .5 or 1volt DC. If it does this the sensor is working properly. See if you can run this test successfully and post back. Catriver.

Check spring tab behind door switch-if it's bent/out of adjustment, circuit will act like door is always open.
To confirm this, open door, set dryer to active setting, and hold in door switch; if it comes on, then it's either the spring tab, or the switch is malfunctioning
