  • Unplug the dryer or turn the breaker off for about 15 minutes to reset the electronics. Any change when it is powered back up?

In the diagram at the link below, number 6 is the main control. It has failed and will need to be replaced.


The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!
