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?

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
Switch off the oven, leave for 5 seconds and switch it back on. Candy Customer Services asked for over £100 to have an engineer sent to my house, which I refuse as I thought the oiven was good. I had to switch off all the electricity in the kitchen but after this 'reset' the oven turned to the normal 'high' volume.
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.
The buzzer is wired through a switch on your dryer motor. The switch is NOT a normal switch... it's a centrifugal switch meaning that it is mounted on the motor shaft and rotates along with it. When it "spins up" centrifugal force flings it outward to make contact with the terminals on the outer edge of the inner motor housing (This tells the timer that the motor is functioning properly and it can now begin to heat the clothes. This is also the switch that keeps you from having to hold in the "Start" button 'til the clothes are dry) When the timer kills power to the motor, the buzzer sounds off because of this switch. As the motor slows, springs retract the switch from the contacts and shut off the buzzer. Make sense so far?
Sounds like your centrifugal switch is getting stuck. Unplug the dryer and gain access to the motor. Then use Contact Cleaner in a spray can to spray and clean every inch (inside and out) of the motor. This should get you going again.
