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

Do you have the full model number? It should be located on a sticker just inside the door way.

ok so the beeping and flashing on this unit just means that the dryer isn't heating. Make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer from your house. If so, then it sounds like your heating element has gone bad which is located behind the drum and requires you to take the entire dryer apart and remove the drum to access and replace the element.
