I have a *****/Kenmore Elite Gas dryer that does not start up. Model # 110.70092991. After selecting the settings I want, I press "start". The control panel makes a relay sounding "click" and that is it. The timer counts down to zero correctly and buzzes, but other than the

"click", nothing happens. The door

switch functions properly. The drum belt is not broken and the "broken belt

:switch" is not actuated and functions

properly. I have checked continuity across the thermal fuse and it is not open. The thermistor reads a very low resistance and when I heat it up with my fingers heat, it resistance changes. I believe this is functionally properly also. Even on "cool air only", the motor will not

start. Can someone explan the operation of the relys on the control board and what might be my problem? Thank you .

There should be a 'tech sheet' included with the wiring diagram on the unit which should described the various functions of the electronic control and also test procedures. That 'tech sheet' may either be inside the console panel or inside the cabinet in a small pocket, pouch or envelope.
