Researched problem on line. Many others had same symptums after power outages and Hurricane Irene. Dryer was in use when power went off, back on, back off than on again. Dryer would not work more than a few seconds. LED lights would go off; Drum did spin; Heater elements came on. All symptoms pointed to the control board. Replaced board and dryer is working now. Reports state that this particular control board is very susceptable to power bumps and will fail.
