Whats the issue you are having with the dryer? Is it not heating?

If so then lets see what the error code is.

Turn it on and set it going.

Then press and hold the start button and the button to the left of it.

Keep them held in and after a few seconds the lights will go out and the start light will flash.

Count the number of red flashes and then the number of green (or amber) and let me know.
