I unplugged the dryer,pulled the top forword a little to release the catches and propped it up. I then opened the door to dryer unscrewed to screws to release door switch. I then disconnected switch at the molex connector and cheched with a VOM.meter set on continuity and found a open switch.I jumped out the switch and dryer worked. I ordered new switch came in only three days and installed switch.Problem solved. Thanks PartsSelect.............
