I have lost the ability to select delecate, casual, normal, jeans, heavy duty. Which item do I need to buy to get it to work on the above settings?
Answer Hello Jim. You will need to replace the control panel 8529879, if the selections are not working properly. Hope this helps.

The "control locked" indicator light is intermittently lit, and the control panel won't respond. I hold the cancel and start buttons and the light sometimes goes out, then the dryer seems to function normally. I also think the vent tubing has a lot of built up material and needs to be cleaned. Are these symptoms somehow related?
Answer Hello Jeff,
The control locked light is indicating that the customer option to "lock out the controls" has been initiated. This is normally caused by a stuck button/s on the control. It is very seldom caused by the control board.
The lint build-up is an indication of poor air circulation. This is usually caused by a crimped or excessively long and/or complicated duct. It can also be caused by a bad blower wheel or an article of clothing or a softener sheet inside the blower wheel.
The two problems are not related.
Control panel won't come on. Unplugged my dryer then it worked for two cycles now the unit will not come on. Nothing lights up on the control board. There is a dim light on the cycle selector.
Based on the description of the problem you will want to check the harness between the main control board and display to make sure that there is not corrosion on the connectors. Also check to make sure that there is no damage to the harness. If this checks ok then most likely the control panel is faulty and would need to be replaced.
