Sometimes the control knobs that you set your dryer to different heating sets will go bad but it is in the control panel some where i whould say it is the heating setting

SOURCE: control panel does not work
This is a process so right down everything, remove the 3 screws on the rear of the dryer for the top panel. Be sure you unplug the machine first before attempting this as high voltage is present. The front user panel is clipped to the chassis and we need to check two items. First the wire harness from the motor control unit to the panel and how well is the board attached to the panel. Look inside and you will see catchs bottom and top, with carefull lifting up and out the top loosens and then the bottom. We want to check the assembly and how well the wires are attached. If all looks sound unplug the board from the motor control unit and replug the unit. Now reattach to the chassis, make sure all is clear of the top and plug it in. Try to power up the unit, if not the panel is dead.
From when you mentioned the dryer light worked I know power is there for the board but I will not say off hand just buy a board, test always look for loose panels and wires then we go broke buying the part. Last is the machine new? If less than a year call sears, 1800for my home and have them fix it!

There should be a wiring diagram located where the electronics are in an envelope. Check for a fuse to the control board. Sometimes the fuse doesn't look like an ordinary fuse that we typically see on cars and things like that. It will appear to look more like a resistor. You need a volt meter to check if there isn't an obvious fuse on the control board.
