My Electrolux EFME517 dryer will not get out of test mode…

Customer Question
My Electrolux EFME517 dryer...

My Electrolux EFME517 dryer will not get out of test mode after installing all new part (controller, User Interface, and control knob, plus new wiring harness). When I power on dryer it cycles through test mode.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Electrolux is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

17 months. EFME517SIOW

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

A repair person already replaced all the parts. Now they are telling me to buy a new dryer

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

How to exit test mode when it is test mode 0

I installed new control board and user interface and it is stuck in test mode
UK Appliance Technician: woody463,

I do not see how that is possible if you replaced the main control board on the top left hand side and the front user interface you have only the knob board left in the electronic controls .

Are you sure that you have the correct parts for your model?

And did you replace the user interface or the knob control board?

i have the correct parts. I local repairman installed them. I looked on the internet and found out how to get into the test mode. To get out you must be in any test mode except 0. I think the factory tested the part but maybe had a power failure during testing. But there must be a way to rest the test mode. Must be a combination of pushing buttons on the front of the machine.
UK Appliance Technician: woody463,

This is the Factory Default Reset: 1 Press power and look for console light up. 2 Within 7 secs, simultaneously press and hold dry level and options buttons for 3 secs.

try that and see what you than get please let me know.
