ok there are several things that can cause the dryer to not start, do you have an ohm meter, because that is the only way to know for sure what part is causing the issue, otherwise you will just be changing parts until the right one is replaced, other than what you have changed it could be the main board, the user interface board, the thermal fuse or the door switch. Now if you would like to try and replace the door switch and the thermal fuse and see if that works or not they are not that expensive but you would want to do the tests with a meter before replacing the machine control electronics because they are fairly expensive. Let me know if you have a meter for testing if so I can give you the test procedures otherwise I will give you the part numbers for the thermal fuse and the door switch.
