Sorry to hear you are having problems with your dryer :(

The problem is the relay on the main Computer board has shorted out . You will need to replace it.

Click the link above. The part is just under the top cover. Remove the screws along the back edge and slide the cover backwards. You will see it on the left side. Be careful removing the wires on the old control.

After replacing main computer board that did not solve issue. It was the heating element that was bad. So it cost me extra to replace something that did not need replaced.
