Everything works on the dryer but it will not heat. I have checked the element and thermostat with an ohm meter. I bought a new thermistor and still no heat. Is my control board going bad? I had some one check it out for me they say it was a bad thermistor. I bought another one but still have the same problem.
Answer Hello Jason,
The error codes should be pulled from the control to see where to start in the repair. This is done by executing the following steps, as per the tech sheet:
1. Rotate cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position. The four indicator lights of Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid (Press Saver), and Clean Lint Filter will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The four indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The four indicator lights and the START indicator light start flashing at the same time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code. NOTE: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine. A = 10, B = 11, C = 12, D = 13, E = 14, F = 15 Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. The four indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times. Troubleshoot the problem by using the chart below.
To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button.
To clear code, press the Select button. Code will be cleared when mode is exited.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.
What level of expertise is needed to replace a control board on the dryer cited under appliance number? Can average homeowner do this job or best left to professional? Thanks
Answer Hey Marty. Replacing the control panel is not to bad of a job. You need to disconnect the power and remove the top panel to access the screws for the control panel. Next remove the screws securing the control panel to the unit. Once they are removed, you need to remove the control panel and remove the board from the panel. Install the new control board  in reverse order.
Had the ground to break coming in from AEP to the house. After that, dryer has light on inside but nothing on display. Could it have blown the mother board?
Answer Hello Tim,
It is most likely that the main board 134523200 on this unit got wiped in that instance. The board is sensitive to voltage spikes and losses of ground and neutral.
