what brand please

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :

fisher Paykel

esequiel walker :

was there a power outage or surge recently

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :

a couple of days ago but we have used it several times since then

esequiel walker :

the board is not resetting and all lights flashing

esequiel walker :

thats a computer board issue

esequiel walker :

normally if its not a board issue you can unplug it for 3 minutes to reset the computer

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :

The damp and Cool Down light are on but not flashing. If I press the power button it beeps continually until I press the power button again.

esequiel walker :

yep but no response correct

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :

yes. There was a shoe string that was caught in the area behind the lint cover and that was removed. I think if I could just reset the unit it might start back up.

esequiel walker :

open the door and press the button on it while pressing it in try statring the dryer

esequiel walker :

Near the bottom of the opening to the dryer there is a sensor switch that gets pushed in when you shut the door. Try holding the switch in with a knife or something and then start the dryer with the door open to check if that is the problem.

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :

This is a top loading dryer and does no have that button

esequiel walker :

there should be a switch around the door to detect it closed

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :

There is a plast piece monted on the dorr that slides into a slot as the door is closed. It is then used to lock the door closed while the dryer isin motion,

esequiel walker :

yes

esequiel walker :

one second

JACUSTOMER-nfr5owf5- :
