Thank you Joseph P., I did not understand that this might take 2 days, I thought it was going to be interactive. The model Number is 11064992300, Serial No. is MR - 19C6740. I want to be able to check the functioning of the door switch, the belt switch and the thermal fuse it there is one. I should also be able to check the resistance of the motor coils. And to check the condition of the belt. If I do not get an anwer by Sunday I suppose I could start taking all the bolts out, but there should be an easier way.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The front lower access panel can be removed to access and check the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is located on the blower wheel housing.  If the motor relay is energizing when the push to start is pushed, the door switch is Okay.

If the blue wire leading to the thermal fuse measures 110-120 VAC when measuring across the blue wire and the white wire connected at P2-2 on the even heat board after pressing and releasing the push to start, the motor relay and even heat board is Okay. You will likely find an open thermal fuse or a broken belt. The door switch circuit can be tested from the control board. Disconnect the P2 connector and check for continuity across blue wire at P2-6 and the white wire at P2-1.

 I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

I added an image of the wiring diagram if needed below.
