I was doing laundry and after the 4th load of that day, when I loaded the 5th, the dryer wouldn't start. I could turn the dial, it showed up as usual, the door open error didnt occur and when I press start, it clicks like it's about to start, but doesn't do anything beyond that. The light in the drum still comes on when I open the door, there's no lint blockages or too much of a weighted load.

An appliance repair gentleman came by and the tan two-plug connector that goes into the control board is burnt. He suggested a new control board, after I ordered one, we realized that the burnt connector was still an issue.. I can't find anything about the wiring harness,, what the wires with the blue dot on the control board go to.. and I don't have much space to remove the back and try and follow the wires. He didn't want to plug the connector into the new control board and risk frying that.

Would it be possible to buy a replacement tan clip/connector, splice the wires and plug it in, or is the wiring harness sold as whole, if at all?
What would my best options be going forward?

Here's the control board for your model:

You need a new FEMALE spade connector wire terminal. Any hardware store will have those terminals.

I use my wire stripping tool:
Wire Stripper

Cut the burnt wire off and strip the wire insulation back a little and put a new FEMALE spade connector on it, and crimp it down tight and push the new FEMALE spade connector into the new MALE spade on the same exact terminal on the new control board.

So what you're doing is by-passing that plastic connector, just cut that burnt plastic connector off, so it will not interfere with that other wire in that same plastic connector.:)

Let us know how it goes.
