Welcome to JustAnswer! Will the dryer start?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.

No, it dies not start. The 3 lights above the start button flash but it does not start. The message when I have the selector on "timed dry" just flashes "Fld". On "Delicates" it's "Fld 072" on "Quick" it is "Fld 011492" on "Casual" it is "Fld C01 00 003" on "Normal" it is "Fld E10 000" on "Heavy" it is "Fld E01" on " Towels/ Bedding" it is "Fld r08" though the r is like a lower case printed r.

You should never see that on the display. You need to replace the control board.

How certain are you of that diagnosis and can this be replaced at home as a DIY fix?
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.

I'm 90% sure. This is an expensive part so I would recommend having a tech replace it so if it fails again the part will be under a warranty.

I replaced the control board as per your suggestions but the same symptoms still remain.
