My GE Dryer stopped workin in the middle of a load today. I am able to hold the start button and sort of spin the control knob to different selections and the dryer surges on for <1 second before shutting off again. I've done some googling and found the wiring diagram. So far I have checked:

The fuse on the back for continuity: ✅
The motor switch for continuity: ✅
The door switch for continuity: ✅
The start button for continuity: ✅
The four thermal fuses for continuity: ✅
I also bypassed the motor switch because the lever didnt seem like it was hitting it every time and that wasn't the issue.

I'd be happy to but no longer necessary. I actually searched this forum with my model number and found a post about someone with a broken control knob. Its actually the first thing I found when I started my searching online and dismissed it. Sure enough, it was cracked and wasnt turning the dial.
