These errors 8:A8 and H:80 or H:A0 are issues with the logic inside the display interface board itself. Try to unplug the dryer for 24 hours to allow all the residual power inside the capacitors to bleed out. If the errors still won't go away and the dryer still won't start, you'll need to replace the interface control board. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
