When I hit the start button, the buzzer sounds but the moter doesn't start. the moter is OK and I already replaced the timer moter. all the switches and thermal fuses are OK. I suspect the electronic dry control is defective. How do I isolate this problem to determine if it is the electronic dry control?

Your timer most likely does need to be replaced. The timer has a small motor that causes it to rotate during the cycle and those can go bad causing the timer to not advance. Unfortunately, you cannot get just that timer motor anymore. Hope this helps!
some dryers send out a short buzz at the beginning of each start up, so if its just that , no worries, you can just jumper the micro switch to eliminate that in locating your problem, try that and reply to this feed and I'll help you if that doesn't cure the problem
On some Kenmore which is made by whirlpool, there is a resistor connected to the timer control. when the machine is off can you listen to the timer switch and hear it running, making a clock ticking sound? If so, you need a new resistor. Being a dryer, when you open the door and it stops the button needs to be reset before it starts again, right? So I wouldnt be looking at the door switch as much as the start button. It may be the evil one.
