I don't think that's a good mod# ,but you need to check power at the cord block. Likely a power problem. If this is a matching dryer to a front load washer than it is likely your main control. Hard to say without a good mod#

Sounds like you lost power, either from your house or maybe trace your common line from your door switch. For you to loose dryer operation and light it would have to be in that circuit or simply no power to your dryer. If you have access to a volt meter, check power at your cord block from outside terminal to outside should be 240v from either outside to center 120v do this while pushing start button to make sure you are not loosing neutral  these numbers should not change, if they do you have a power problem

Did you check the things I told you? You don't want to just through parts at it

ok I checked the cord block had 240v from out side to out side  then checked out side to center and only one side had 120v other side had hardly any, so what youre saying is that its a power problem ? maybe in the wall plug ?
thanks for your help
