They dryer was working one day and the next, nothing. It lights up when I press the power button, but I get a click then a few seconds later the F01 error code shows up. I have tested the fuse and it appears to be good. I've read it is likely the control board, but its a pretty spendy part. I've read there are other things I can check, but they aren't for this exact model, so I'm a little confused on where everything is just by part name. Can someone tell me if there are other parts I can check/test or if there is a way to test the control board to be sure that is the problem before I spend the money? Thanks!

It's going to be the machine control electronics Access the control and measure the voltage across P9-2 and P8-3 (120 VAC supply voltage), P9-2 to P8-4 (120V if the door is closed and the door switch is good. P9-2 to P9-1 and press start, (120V to motor)
Main Control Board WPW10110641

Thank you! Do I access this control board from the top of the dryer? Do I remove it to test it? Are these numbers labeled on the control board or do I need to find a diagram to figure out what I'm to test? And do I need to remove the door switch prior to testing it? Sorry, I'm no electrician, but definitely willing to do things myself. I've changed out parts on a washing machine before, but never done this voltage testing before.

Yes, it's located on the left side.
Do I remove it to test it?
You can go in thru the back of the connectors with your meter leads. If your meter leads are too big, use a safety pin:

Yes, here's the ones you need: Ignore P2 and P14

P9-2 to P8-4 (120V if the door is closed and the door switch is good).
No, if you have 120V the switch is good. Make sure the door is closed.
