ED4 is a dryer circuit board problem. But what we find on these is the dryer element failes as the insultaion goes low and the board picks this up and causes problems in there.

What you can try is pull the washer out and take the top off.

From there you will see the metal dryer chamber in the middle going from front to back.

At the back you will see 4 wires. This is the dryer element. Disconnect them and then retry the washer and see if it works.

If it does then the dryer element will need to be replaced to cure the problem. But the washer will work fine like that untill you get the element replaced.
