The Lint Light goes on after Power button is pushed, then the F light flashes. Do I need a new Control Panel?
ANSWER Hi Daniel. Make sure the vent is entirely clear and not restricted. Make sure the outside vent cap / hood is opening and closing properly 4-5x /yr. so lint and moisture does not back up and create a restriction causing these issues. Make sure the entire lint screen and blower housing is cleaned using a lint brush part # TJ103 and a shop vac. It will be advantageous to find the supplied tech sheet inside the cabinet to aid you in the diagnosis. It allows you to put the unit in a diagnostic mode which brings up fault codes and tells you which circuit needs assistance. Scuff up the front inner bulkhead moisture sensor bars to get any fabric softener build up on them with a scotchbrite pad. DIAGNOSTIC: Moisture Sensor Open the door and locate two metal strips on the inside of the dryer. Bridge these strips with a wet cloth or a finger. ? If a continuous beep tone is heard and an alphanumeric number is displayed on the console, the sensor is OK. What F- code is it so I can help further ? Thank You.
