Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

There is no trick to resetting the dryer. Make sure you plugged the door switch back in if it became disconnected. If the machine thinks the door is open it'll beep 3 times. If it's plugged in but you still get the 3 beeps, replace the door switch.
