Things I've tried:
  • Checking cont. on all the thermo stuff on the blower.
  • Friend checked breakers, voltage to dryer.
  • Checked voltage on control panel. Seemed to get something?
  • No burn marks on control board.
There was tons of lint in the bottom of the dryer.

I am going to personally check voltages of the power source myself since I can't help but doubt someone else's work.

Basically acts like it's getting no power at all. People I got it from swear up and down that it worked when they put it out.

Hi,

I'm attaching the tech. data sheet below.

On Page 4 you will see this:
CN2 Sub PCB Display
5-4 5VDC (Wht-Pnk)
6-4 15VDC (Red-Pnk)


Check those voltages with your meter and post the results. Those voltages operate the display panel.

No voltage on either of those panel connections. Used a paperclip in the connector because my probes were too big. Paperclips had continuity so no plastic coating preventing me from getting a reading. Dryer is 100% getting power. Black to red is ~230 and black/red to ground is ~115.

Ok,

Then the problem would be the control board, but its been discontinued by the manufacturer:
DC92-00123C Assy Pcb Main

I'm working on getting a used one, once I get it I'll update this thread whether it fixed the issue.

No dice. Perhaps I measured fuses incorrectly or the paperclip did not conduct? Or the display is borked?

Ok, take the voltage reading again, this time use this safety pin trick below.

I don't get anything going from red to pink or white to pink but I do get something going from red/white to ground. The reading fluctuates a lot though.

Then that main PCB board you got is bad, like I said its not longer available, so if you got it used send it back and get a refund.:)

Then go dryer shopping.

I'm just going by your voltage measurements, that's all I can do to tell you the problem, if somehow your not measuring the voltage properly or your meter is not working properly that would change the voltage measurements.

But if you look what I said in post #2 of the voltage readings that's all we can go by.

Also check all your wiring to make sure you have no shorts in the wiring harness.
