I'm not sure what you mean by cycles. The machine says 7 cycle supreme, but I only have it set for Hrsvy dry and move the dry time between 0 and 70 minutes
just try the other cycles you say it has 7 of them try 3 of them please? before we move on

It is still just blowing cold air, bypassing the thermal fuse

ok leave that hooked up as is now unplug it again and find the thermal cut out and tape them together as well and try it again the same way
