Hi thanks, ***** ***** its stuck in anti crease mode.Please try one thing for me.Unplug the drier for 1 full hour. Then plug it back in, let me knwo if this cured the problem or not?That will reset the main board so in case it just electronically glitched it will revert to normal operations. But if it doesn't let me know because you may need a part.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank youSincerelyTech Michael

Hi thanks, ***** ***** a failed sensor but this is something that needs to be checked by an appliance technician to be sure unless you are handy and want to take it apart? Please let me know I will help you all the way.Its hotter and flashing because its stuck in Anti Crease mode.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I am reasonably handy and am prepared to give it a go but presumably it will need a spare part and if so how long will that take to obtain?
Expert:  Michael replied 9 months ago.
