Reply to The Home Smithy's Post: I do not see a model number anywhere in the literature that came with the dryer. It is a whirlpool duet sport gas dryer. we ran a diagnostic mode and it showed a fault code of f-02. The keypad lights were out of sync and the power would not go on unless we unplugged it and replugged it. We let the diagnostic mode return to the standby mode and now the dryer starts up and runs normally. What would cause something like this and is it apt to happen frequently?

Ok was the unit flashinf PF at any time?

Have you had a power failure recently when the unit was runing?

The manufacturers tag should be on the inside of the lid/door

Ok these units are sensitive to power surges. What I suggest you do is install a good surge protector and this should remidy tthe problem.

For now I would not be concerned. If after you install the saurge protector it happens again in say the next week then you may be looking at a new control board..
