No other controls will work when this is going on. It's a steady beep about 1 second apart, no pattern to it.

The only way to stop the beeping is to unplug it or turn off the circut breaker to the dryer. Sometimes I can plug it back in after an hour or so and it will work. But that doesn't always work.

Thanks in advance. Y'all have always been such a great help to me! :-)

Oh, and it will just start beeping out of the blue. We'll be in bed and I'll wake up hearing it beeping.

Take another look at the model number, you have a typo in the three-digit prefix.

What happens if you hold the 'control lock' button down for 3 to 5 seconds ???....... Or look for the little padlock symbol button(s).......................

Corrected model in title;

Could be a stuck or messed up keypad on the touchpanel (the same key you hold for control lock as described above) - unplug when not in use to avoid the impromtu 2a.m. alarm

Sensei, Nothing happens when I hold down the control lock buttun, non of the controls work when this is going on.

Sometimes I can plug it back in, hold down the control key and it will stop beeping, but this does not work every time and I'm afraid to wash anything now because I don't want to be stuck with wet clothes and a dryer that won't work. Laundry mats around here are few and far between and the ones we do have are in questionable neighborhoods. :ermm:

You have a bad touchpanel. Not uncommon in these dryers. Come pick your flavorite color ==> http://www.repaircli...-Touchpad-Parts

OH awesome! NOT!

I figured that was the problem, but was hoping maybe not. UGH! Better than getting a new dryer.

Any link to instructions on how to replace it? I'm sure it's probably "Plug N Play" easy, but figured I'd ask.

Thanks!

Samurai!
