In the diagram at the link below, number 507 is a thermal fuse. I suspect that fuse may be open. Do you have a meter to perform any electrical testing with?
Number 506 is a thermistor, it is not one that you measure continuity through and would not stop the motor from heating. Did you try to measure continuity through it?
Number 506 is not a safety thermostat. Number 507 is. Did you find 507 open?
Okay, so the fuse is not the issue. Did the belt get placed back on the drum so the belt switch gets closed?
Okay, and you verified the belt switch was actuated? If the timer counts down, either the board has failed or there is something stopping the power between the control and the motor. That leaves the thermal fuse, belt switch and the motor thermal fuse (built into the motor).
