YES. i HAVE REPLACED PUMPS ETC BEFORE. ALSO 2 OF THE LITES REMAIN ON NORMAL AND HEAT DRY.

ITHINK THE TECH MAY HAVE CONNECTED THE WIRES ON THE SWITCH INCORRECTLY. hE BLEW THE FUSE PANEL 5 TIMES DURING THE HOOK UP. i CANNOT FIND AN ELECTRICAL SCHEMATIC.iT WOULD SURE MAKE THINGS EASIER.

My name is Woody.
I`m sorry to hear that your having issues!
I will do my best to take the information that you provide to me and make a Diagnosis for you to be able to repair your own Appliance.
Please note it takes time to type and add links so please be patient.
Also the website will send you a phone call offer that is not from me!

There is no way to hook up the door switch wires incorrectly.

When the door is opened it opens the circuit to stop the operation of the unit .

I would rather suspect that when he blew the fuse that he damaged a relay on the control board so that when the door is open the repaly on the control board is not opening to kill voltage to the components.

Can you look at the model number once again please I do not find the model number of GCD4800L00WW
