My dryer used to turn on with a melody as soon as the Power

Customer Question

My dryer used to turn on with a melody as soon as the Power in pressed. Now, it does not have the melody when the Power is pressed. When I press Start button it does not turn the motor on and there is no revolution of the clothes.
It is a DLEX3250.
When I use Smart Diagnostic, there is no melody or beeping, so I am unable to diagnose it with the iphone App.

The only way to fix this is to replace the main board as that houses the speaker. It is nothing complex to do, but that is a relatively minor thing that does not affect how the dryer works, so spending the money on a board would be optional in my mind.

No. The speaker is not the issue. Don't care if the speaker works or not. The dryer motor does not come on. This is the problem. Thanks

MY error here. You will need and know how to use a voltmeter to diagnose the issue. Post back if you are so equipped.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. I know And have a meter. Please advise
Expert:  MRANSWER replied 2 years ago.
Confirm that you have 120 and 240 volts or so being supplied to the dryer. Next make sure that the belt is intact.
Let me know the results.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes. There is voltage and there is nothing wrong with the belt. All the lights come on.

I would be sure to check on ebay as sometimes you can find deals there.

Which one is the control board?
Expert:  MRANSWER replied 2 years ago.
The board that has all the wires connected to it right behind the console area. This only has one control board.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
stupid question. Sorry. I wonder whAt caused it to go bad? It's only 1'year old. Can I download new firmware to it?
Expert:  MRANSWER replied 2 years ago.
No way to tell what failed on it or why. There is no repair possible on it, only replacement
