is the light over the drying button on all the time or what do you mean it's locked on drying?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

the light on the drying button is on but the machine is not drying but we cant get it to stop

Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
ok the "heated dry" button or the "drying" light to the right of it is lit up?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
under options its the heated dry button. there are no lights on the right that are lit up
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 7 years ago.
ok well that means the unit is either control locked or the button is stuck. You will need to press and hold the heated dry button for 10 seconds to see if it unlocks. If not, then you need to replace your touchpad because your touchpad button is stuck, that's what it means when a touchpad button is lit up and won't turn off.
