SOURCE: Control panel not working
Measure voltagebetween COM terminal of relay RL2 and neutral.
If 0 volts - defective house power supply or broken wire between terminal block and relay. If 120volts - replace control board

SOURCE: Dryer reset?
NO RESET BUTTON, BUT THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE LOCATED ON THE BACK NEAR THE EXHAUST DUCT. IT IS A SMALL WHITE ITEM WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. CHECK FOR 120 VOLTS AT THE TWO TERMINALS. IF YOU HAVE 120 VOLTS THERE, THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD. REPLACE FUSE AND CHECK FOR RESTRICTION IN THE AIR FLOW. ALSO, IF YOU HAVE A THERMOMETER THAT CAN MEASURE TEMPS BETWEEN 100 AND 200 DEGREES, CHECK THE TEMP AT THE EXHAUST ONCE THE DRYER IS OPERATING AGAIN. IT SHOULD CYCLE OFF SOMEWHERE AROUND 170 DEGREES. IF IT GOES OVER 200 DEGREES, REPLACE THE CYCLING THERMOSTAT.

that sounds weird to have all those lights on...
first thing is to try and remove the "lock"light...
push and hold the button, for 5 seconds, below the "lock" light,
that should get the control back to normal operation. then if you still cant get the unit to turn on, try to unplug the dryer for a few minutes.
if you still cant get it to turn back on, call sears "customer service" and complain since your machine should not have failed at this early in its life.

I regret to inform you that the electronic board in your dryer is "cooked". This part can not be repaired, it will need to be replaced
