LG DLE2516W dryer won't start

by SandyR211 / November 21, 2013 12:09 AM PST

On my Dryer, I push the select button & all the lights come on, then turn the dial to my desired setting. When I push the start button, the display goes blank and the dryer does not start. I have changed the Control panel and Display board, got the same results. With an ohm meter, I have tested the Thermal Fuse; Door Switch; the Belt Switch and the incoming power. All of those are good.
I'm not sure what else I can check? Any help is much appreciated.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
