The F01 error code on the duet dryers are a communication error between the main control board and the user interface control. First you need to kill power to the dryer for at least 5 minutes and restore power, if the board does not reset and you continue having the error then the user interface board will need to be replaced. If you give me the model number of the dryer I will be glad to find you the replacement board if needed, thanks. In the meantime:

Hi there,
I was just getting back with you, I see the question is still open and un-rated and I have not heard back from you is there something else I can help you with?
