Installed new starter switch but it turns out that was not the problem. After checking the wiring diagram I tested the door switch and found that it was faulty. I jumped across it behind the control panel and now the dryer works fine.I'll replace the door switch later. If you do has I did remember that the dryer will then run with the door open and is dangerous. My mistake was I did not check the old starter switch with the ohm meter right off, silly me.
