I could use some help!
My wife went to start a load on steam and when she hit the power on button, nothing!
I also do not have a light on in the drum.
I first checked the breaker and it looked good but I reset it anyway.
I have 248v at the outlet and 248v at the terminal.
This set is only 3 years old…
After doing some online search, I bought and replaced the control board.
Still nothing, will not power up and no light in drum area. I also tried the hard reset multiple times.
Any help would be amazing!

Hi,

Let's start with the door switch first, since you mentioned the light in the drum is not coming on anymore. You will need a multimeter to ohm test it.

Here's how to use a multimeter to ohm test:
Make sure the dryer is unplugged while ohm testing parts.

Here's the door switch for your model:
Door Switch 6601EL3001A


This video shows you how to access it:

Let us know what you find.
