Good evening, I', working on a Samsung dryer Model # DV42H5000EW/A3. when I first went to work on it the owner said she put a load in and went to turn it on and had no power to the front control, after taking the machine apart the heating element had shorted out to the housing, so I figured a new heating element would solve the problem because everything else checked out good (OHM ) After putting in the new element, the machine still didn't have power to the front control unit. The ECM looked good, no burnt spots and the wiring harness going to the control panel ohm out good. So I guess my question is can the heating element grounding out to the machine take out the control board and is that what I need to replace? Thanks. Also power coming in is 220V that i checked.
