I have a whirlpool duet dryer that won't start. I set it to any setting and push start and it beeps 3x and time flashes. Diagnostic mode gives an error code 7E. I have replaced the door switch already and the thermal fuse. Do I need to replace the control board? Model GEW9260PW0
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Do you have a meter to test the door switch circuit directly at the control board?

No I don't

Okay, it is unlikely that the circuit has issues, especially since you replaced the switch. We could tell for certain with a meter, but I think the control is likely to be at fault, not recognizing the door switch input. However, since we are not 100% certain, I have provided a link to a company that will allow you to return the control, even if installed. That way, just in case, you will not be out the part cost!
