Jelkins we have some older versions that may help a little would you like one of them?
Those gas dryers have had a lot of them gas valves go out lately. And the assembly is pretty dang expensive.

Sure, an older version may help. I posted a question earlier regarding the dryer.I'll repeat it if OK. I was  doing several loads and forgot to clean the lint filter. The last load sat for a while so I hit the freshen button and the dryer started.  left the room and several minutes later went back to find the dryer had shut off. I started it again and left. Again it shut off after only a minute or two.I cleaned the filter and relaced it. When I hit the button to turn it on again nothing happened. No ring, no buzz, no anything.The dryer is only about a year and a half old.Any suggestions? Someone said it may be the thermal limit switch or fuse.What is that and is it easy to fix? Thanks JE

From the looks of it what you did was cause an overheat by not cleaning the filter. If this is an ongoing thing then I would imagine the vent pipe is plugged too. Kill the power to the dryer and remove the clothes so the brain won't know the same load is in there. yeah it weighs the load. Let it cool down and reset on its own. In the meantime clean the lint out the vent and filter.

Well, so far, so bad. Unplugged the dryer and plugged it back in. Had already cleaned the lint trap and replaced it and already folded all the clothes that were in there.Still no luck. When I push the on button absolutely nothing happens. Nothing lights up, no noise come out,not one thing happens. What is going on???? Still stumped. JE

just came in from using my daughters dryer and just for kicks I hit the start buttonto see if the dryer would turn on and ....IT DID...and before I could say to my husband 'Hey honney the dryer is working", it turned off again.The front lit up and the ding, ding, dings sounded, and then it all went blank. Pushed the start button several times and nothing again.This thing is making me crazy. JE

That is probably a control board fault or a loose connection.

Go to the cord. Unplug the power and tighten all the connections to the terminal block. Retry

I was thinking about a LE (load error) on another brand machine I guess this one does not feature that Oopz! So Reggie do you have an idea what could be the problem here? I was thinking may be loose connection at the power source. What's your take?
