Try this and tell me what happens.

 

hold the "No Heat Dry" button for 4 seconds or more.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
do you mean the heated dry button
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
dont have a No heat dry button on mine but held the heated dry button and nothing changed or happened..normal light still flashing rapidly.
Expert:  william replied 5 years ago.

Ok then this means that you have a stuck button on the keypad which in this case is the normal. Did they give you a warrenty on the parts at all?

no they didnt and it was working when it happened so how did it get stuck
Expert:  william replied 5 years ago.

Thats to bad. Also i want you to know that when they use warrenty parts the parts are not bran-new they are repaired for whatever reason and then sent back out. You will have to get a bran-new one im sorry to say.

What you could try is to take a look at the ribbon cable and clean the ends on it then re-install it and see what happens. Give it a shot.
