Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

to unlock the dryer, just press and hold the "end of cycle signal" button for 5 seconds. If that doesn't unlock the unit, unfortunately you have a shorted interface control board and the board will need to be ordered and replaced. The part is about $200 for the part itself unfortunatey.
