My gas dryer, Model SGDS800MQ1 stopped working. Based on the troubleshooting guides on your website, I replaced both the push-to-start relay (Part number AP3037944) and the Dryer Door Switch Assembly (Part Number AP3132865) but the dryer is still inoperative. I also confirmed that the thermal fuse 3392519 is good (reading 0.4 ohms on my multi-meter). Here's what it is doing now: When I push the "on" button the dryer motor does not activate and all I hear is the click of the relay. If I open the door, the interior light is illuminated and the relay clicks again (indicating that the door switch is working and cutting power to the relay). Since the interior light is illuminated with the door open and the dryer plugged in, the dryer itself is apparently getting power. Where do I go from here in terms of troubleshooting and repair? Thanks Here is the detailed information of the parts replaced so far: Relay, Push to Start Part Number: AP3037944 and Dryer Door Switch Assembly Part Number: AP3132865

I tested the AP3037944 start switch like it said. I saw that the bottom two separate wires are for the buzzer. I tested the other three and got no continuity with the switch pushed over and over. I want to make sure I tested it properly. I put the alligator clip on the lower post which was a pink wire, then touched the needle to the other two posts which were blue. I got nothing for either one alone and nothing for them together. I did get continuity for the blue to blue posts. Is the switch bad? It doesn't click. It is just sort of mushy.
