Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. There are a few things that could be causing this issue to happen. The moisture sensor may be malfunctioning or the thermistor. Those are the first two things I suggest checking. I would start with the moisture sensor. It could not be telling the board the clothes are dry and causing this issue to happen.

This is your moisture sensor and a video on how to check and replace it

This is the thermistor that I was referring to.
