My dryer will not come on the light on the inside of the dryer works but the control panel will not come on.
Answer Hello Daniel. Test the thermal fuse. If good, test for power to the control board. If there is power there, and it does not work, you will need to replace the control board 8558756. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

Answer Peter, Here you go : 1. Turn off the gas to the dryer and disconnect the electrical power. 2. Pull the dryer away from the wall and remove the top cover.Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer’s top cover. NOTE: The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover NOTE: Sharp edges may be present. 4. Lift the rear of the top cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket, and remove the cover from the unit. NOTE: Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover. 5. Remove the three screws from the machine
