To be clear, the dryer won't run correct? It just beeps once when you press the start button after closing the door but the motor never turns on?

that's correct

I would prefer the answer on here , no phone call needed

OK perfect. So the fuse is definitely one of the possibilities that can cause your problem but it sounds like you replaced that and the issue is still there. Just for reference, the door switch can't cause this problem. The other thing that can cause this issue is if the dryer thinks the belt is broken. So when you have the lower front panel off, do make sure the belt isn't laying on the ground broken. There is a switch next to the motor that is activated when the belt is taut. If by chance the belt is attached and the fuse happens to be good or when you replace it you still have an issue, you'll need to replace the main relay board mounted to the left side wall above the drum because it thinks that either the fuse is bad or the belt is broken. You can't test the control board, so if the fuse and the belt switch (mounted next to the motor under the tensioner pulley) are good---then you need to just replace the main control board due to process of elimination.

Thank you for the response. So the only thing left is the reset switch on motor or control panel ....I appreciate your help

No problem, but to be clear---the control panel is different than the relay control board. The control panel can NOT cause this problem. Only the main power relay control board which is mounted above they dryer drum to the left side wall.

I know what your talking about ......Is the power relay control board very expensive ?

OK, I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. The board is rather expensive unfortunately. It's about $200. However sometimes if you remove the board you may see a black burn mark on the back from a cold solder joint which you can just re-solder if you know how to do that. That isn't always the case but about half the time it is.
