You're definitely on the right track. F1 means that your main relay power control board under the control panel has failed and would need to be replaced I'm sorry to say. The cost of the part is typically about $200-250 depending on the exact model which is located on a sticker just inside the door way, but there is no way to really reset this board other than to try to unplug the dryer for 5 minutes and see if the error goes away. If not then you must replace the main board.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.

You can order it from Repairclinic.com or Searspartsdirect.com if you wanted. If you have a model number I can look up the part for you.
