This problem was the result of a lighting strike that actaully happened a year ago. The dryer still worked but there was a special routine to get it to start. It finally would not start at all and i assumed and ordered the control unit and it arrived the next day. It took just about five minutes to install, just remove to the old board and disconnect the plug-ins and tighten a few screws, much easier and less expensive than calling a service technician
