Well the The F47 Error code is not used and will not be seen unless the Diagnostic cycle was pressed "More Time, Less Time, More time Less time" then it will almost always come up.

1. Ensure the machine is Grounded at the wall plug.

2. Level the machine front to back and side to side. This will ensure that the clothing will tumble properly, making proper contact with the moisture sensor.

3. Clean the Moisture sensor bars of any films or dryer softener sheet buildup.

4. Replace the touchpad.

All I ask is please use the....FINISH BY RATING link at the top your page to select a 5 STAR RATING before leaving today....this is important for my status on the site plus without a rating I will receive ZERO credit(NO PAY) from the site for assisting you. Also rating now does not close the question out and you can come back anytime for FREE right here to me......Happy Holidays!
