My Whirlpool dryer will not start. I have checked everything I know to find the problem including start button, thermostats, fuses, door, motor, timer,and heating element. All have checked out fine using multimeter. I noticed there is a very small circuit board (approx 2"x3"). Could this be the problem and how would you check it?
ANSWER Randy, The printed circuit board would be the electronic control for the sensor dry settings, it would cause the timer to not advance or shut off at the end of the cycle. It wouldn't normally cause a no start situation. If you have circuit checked all the components, you will need to conduct a voltage check on all the wiring and components, until you find the broken wire, First check and make sure you have the proper voltage at the terminal block, and that the connections are tight and proper.
