Michael, The machine does not work, just the drying light flashing.
If i set the prog dial to off, then hold the low heat and start buttons down, then turn the dial to extra dry, the iron dry light starts flashing. If i then release the heat and start buttons, turn the dial to iron dry, then press the start button, the dryer seems to run. But this only appears to be some sort of test mode.
if I turn the dial back to off, then try running the machine normally, the drying light just flashes.
Michael, In the iron dry test mode the drum appears to run for about 5 cycles in each direction, but there does not seem to be any heat.
Michael, I have spent the morning cleaning the machine of all dust and debris. To do this I had the machine unplugged for well over an hour. As soon as i powered it back on the same fault was still displayed. The drying light flashing as soon as i turn the prog dial to any setting.
Michael, OK, this fault has been intermittent for a few days but normally resets when we turn the prog dial to off, then back on again. If it is the control board, is the board repairable or is it a case of getting a new board.
