Dryer starts and runs about 5 to 10 minutes. drum stops turning. No error codes. Display continues to count down. After a while the dryer will kick back on. Heating element ohmed at 11 ohms. I replaced Thermostats on heat tube and thermistor. A couple days before this happened we had severe storms and lost power. Voltage input is correct. Thinking issue is with electronic control board,not sure.

Thanks.

Hi,

Yes, that may have been what happened. Unplug your dryer and open the control panel, then remove that control board and look closely at your control board and see if you notice any burnt spots on it.

Here's the control board for your model:

Replacing control board repaired issue. Would have been nice if my original google search for a repair manual for this machine would have told me to check under the console.
