I haven't vented in quite a while, so I'll serve one up on those worthless bastards at Electrolux.
A customer has this dryer for 2 weeks and it can't be used because it's in the Demo mode. The ownners manual, installation Guide, and Tech quides have no mention of this feature. Putting the machine into diagnostic will not change anything, trying to run the installation cycle will not help, The factory reset does nothing...
Rant break... YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARDS...WHAT GOOD IS A FACTORY RESET FEATURE THAT DOES NOT RESET THE CONTROL!!!!!!!
SO, I call STAC, our tech line, and spend 45 min with them trying numerous methods to exit the Demo Mode, nothing works. We are only left with the idea of replacing the main control board.
Rant break... I HAVE TO REPLACE THE CONTROL BECAUSE YOU ASSWIPES ARE TOO FUCKING STUPID TO PROVIDE THE TECH INFO TO END THE DEMO MODE. PUT THE INFO ON THE TECH SHEET YOU SHIT EATING MORONS.
If any of you guys know how to correct this problem, and get the dryer into normal service mode, please post the method so I can help these folks out. Thank you.
PS... Electrolux you stink
