Hello what is the model number? Also what fuse did you check?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
the model number is XXXXX i used the dryer 3 days ago and it was working fine and this morning when i wanted to turn it on the only button that worked was the 'cycle end signal/ lock unlock' button and then that also stopped working and now the only thing that works is the inside light. i checked my breakers and everything is in order....
