Problem resolved. Although the membrane control panel passed the diagnostic test, it was defective. Probably a low voltage conductor went to ground, allowing the buttons to operate but throwing the control board into error mode.

Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

Gas dryers aren't very complicated. Here are some common symptoms you may experience with your dryer.

It's noisy
It won't start
The light doesn't work
My clothes smell bad!
My clothes are marked or torn
Hope this may help;

Control panel does not respond on Crosley Dryer Model CDE4205AYJ

Don't you just love electronic controls. On the inside of the dryer is like it always was back in the day with mechanical timers. The same old problem the old ones had is the blower wheel slips and causes overheating or a ball of lint at the base of the filter chute. This eventually blows the FUSE. Their is 2 of them fuses so look close one is usually behind a shield out of sight and may have been overlooked. DIAGRAM

Whirlpool Duet gew9250 - Control Lock

The most common reason for this type of complaint would be a failure in the user interface board (UI), if the portion of the board has a short circuit across the lock trails it will demonstrate this symptom.

The fix would be to have the UI replaced. Part number is
8558753 Platinum
8558755 Biscuit
8558756 Pewter

The cost for the part alone is around $160.00 plus labor to install.

I know this is not good news. sorry....

Controll pannes has dim lights and wont respond to touch

It sounds like a bad timer board . If you unplug overnight you allow discharging the capacitor on control board, that is the reason why it works next day. Check if the power outlet is grounded properly, and test a different outlet. If that does not fix the problem, then test and eventually replace timer board, motor control unit or any other control board present (dryness control if present).

Dryer won't start

Check the door switch, if the switch is bad the dyer thinks the door is open it will not start.
