Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** I will help you today!

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your appliance; I know that can be frustrating.

Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

Leave it unplugged for around 30 minutes and then plug it back.

See if this resets the control, let me know how it goes.


If you ask a follow‑up question and I do not respond immediately, it is because I am temporarily unavailable.

I promise to respond as soon as I return.

ok thank you

Fingers crossed, when you plug it back press and hold the START button for around 10 seconds.

This will cancel any previous programs.

this is dryer

As it heats fine and the reset procedure did not work..the problem seems to be with the Control board that is faulty and will need replacement.

However, if you can test the thermostats located at the rear near the heater assembly for continuity with a multimeter.

If they test fine replace the control board, if any of those does not have continuity replace them.

Let me know how it goes.
