You may just have it on child lock To lock the dryer, press and hold the lock icon for 3 seconds. To unlock the dryer, press and hold the lock icon for 3 seconds. The icon of the lock next to the timer will light up when the controls are locked. Then if the lint screen was cleaned and that comes on it should disappear shortly after starting it.
