Touch controls not responsive. have unplugged power, and can't change from time dry, to sensor dry. lights on panel are lit. maybe a thermister? how to change?

That's a bad touchpanel. Pick your flavorite color here ==> http://www.repaircli...-Touchpad-Parts

Samurai - I just went and plugged the dryer back in after 2 days unplugged. the touch pad is now responsive. i put it on sensor dry, and it going to run for 40 min. we'll see if it fails again. Is the thermister part of the touch panel, or is that a separate part? Any way I can do good problem determination/detection to get to the root problem so we can fix it without doing multiple part tries? Will let you know what happens with the latest "experiment"

That was a short experiment. Dryer is now shut off after 5 min running (or less), and the touch panel is dark, and unresponsive. Is it the touch panel, or something else (thermostat) setting it to an off condition and shutting down the dryer? i unplugged the dryer for 15 seconds, plugged back in and the lights are illuminated again, but i cannot change the settings at all on the panel. any ideas?

Thanks - part ordered. Can you send any instructions on how to install if not with the part? Thanks for your help.
