Kenmore 900 series dryer won't start

Just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction on my dryer. It is about 7.5 years old. I get no response when pushing the start button. I have tested the power source, checked the door switch, and the push button, all seem fine. I am just wondering where/what to check next. Is it possible that the board has gone bad if I get no response when pushing/holding the start button? Any ideas on what to check? Thanks.

Hi,

Please post the model# so we can help you more.

A couple quick things thatwould notlet it start, first is thermal fuse, second is the push-to-start button.

It was indeed the thermal fuse. Thanks for the idea, it saved me a bundle!
