Thank you for the model number.

If you have cleaned the filters etc. then I am afraid, this indicates a fault with heating element and/or control board.

You will have to unplug it, and pull it out.

Then remove the rear of the dryer, then you can test the heater, if it is open circuit replace it however, if the heater tests fine, you will have to replace the control board.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
