We have a Maytag dryer model MED9600SQo and it won't come

Customer Question

we have a Maytag dryer model MED9600SQo and it won't come on. When the door is open the tub light does come on.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: The dryer is probably 8 years old and the model MED9600AQ0.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes my son will do it.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I don't know, I am thinking that it is the thermal fuse or limit switch?

Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dryer today. You'll want to start by unplugging the dryer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will restart. If that doesn't work, check and make sure you're getting 220 volts to the back of the dryer where the power cord connects to the terminal block. If you're getting 110 volts and not 220 volts the lights will come on but not the rest of the dryer. If the power is correct, the display control board will need to be ordered and replaced because it has just failed so below is a link to the part which is about $300 or so.
