ok, you need to put this in diagnostic test mode, try this
ACTIVATING THE DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE
1. Be sure the dryer is in Standby Mode (plugged in and all
2. Press the following button sequence: More Time ? Less
Time ? More Time ? Less Time - all within 5 seconds.
3. All indicators on the console are illuminated with "88"
showing in the "Estimated Time Remaining" (two-digit)
display, if this test mode has been entered successfully.
lst me know if it enters the test mode.
TEST #6 Door Switch Test
in the diagnostic mode, Functionality is
verified with a beep each time the door is closed and opened;
and an alpha numeric code appears in the display ("0E", "0g",
"1E", or "2E" etc.).
test the door switch see if a code comes up. open and close the door.
"E3" flashes when there is a keyswitch or
software mismatch. This error code will ONLY
appear when in the Diagnostic Test mode. See
unfortunately from here it looks like you control board is bad, this testing gets to complicated form here however. you would need a volt meter and understanding of how to test different components individually from inside the machine, it's going to be a problem with the control board itself or the user interface, the control board itself is $180 and the interface is $220 and you don't want to start replacing these parts without knowing which one is bad, this means testing each individual interface button and control board outputs, this may be a little bit over your head at this point, there is a thick book of tests to go through, unfortunately there's not much more we can do on line, at this point it's best to either call a technician which probably with parts and labor will run you around $350 or replace machine itself, I wish we could go further but it gets real complicated from here, my guess however is you control board has failed, hope I've been of some help, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
So, if I buy the interface and control board, put one in and it doesn't work, then try the other one. I think the control board is not hard to swap out, but I haven't found any info yet on the interface, is that ususally something handy with electronics (my husband - he evens owns a volt meter!).
