Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your dryer? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

Not sure the model but it’s a Whirlpool and it was given to me so not sure of age of it but maybe 2 yrs

That means POWER FAILURE, try to press cancel and see if it clears. If not shut the power off to the dryer for a full minute at the circuit breaker and power it back on and see if that solves it. If not let me know.

If he has tried to reset it and it says PGF and pressing STart or Cancel does not clear it you have a main control board failure on the unit and you will need a part to fix this issue.
