How much does one of those cost?? Where would In find the model number?
Expert:  Joel Swenson replied 11 months ago.
Ok so I will need the model number to find the board it needs, they are all different depending on model number, the model number is ***** on a tag on the facing of the dryer frame behind the door, just open the dryer door and you will see the tag with the model and serial number on it.
