if the thermal fuse is good, the belt switch is good, and the belt is not broken sounds like you may have a control board issue.

I don't know of a good way to actually test the control board. But if everything else is good. There's not a whole lot of other options left.

If the door switch is bad it certainly won't start. Should be a simple continuity test on the door switch.

Most likely itís probably the control board (on the top left of the cabinet) you mentioned that you got continuity when you tested the door switch but no beep or click when u open the door. Does the drum light come on when you open the door?  If it does thatís a good sign that the door switch is good.  If not, either you have a light bulb issue or maybe you incorrectly checked the door switch. Make sure you are checking com to nc not com to no and do it with the door closed.  But most likely itís your control board if all other checks are good.  In my experience with these dryers itís ALWAYS either a broken belt or bad board.
