Our Neptune dryer model MDG6800AWW seems to be possessed: the control panel will randomly beep and light up (drying time, sensor dry, start/pause, temp, sensor dry level LEDs), just as if you opened the door. It will still operate normally if you push the start/pause button, but the drying time stays at 53 min and doesn't count down. Lately it won't turn off (panel only, the drum doesn't turn or heat up) or respond when you push the on/off or start pause buttons and continuously chirps, which is quite annoying. If we unplug the machine then plug it back in, we can catch the demon by surprise and start the dryer normally.
Oh, and one more piece of information: the door switch has continuity when pressed. That's good, right?
I'm hoping someone far smarter than I has an idea what I need to do to exorcise the demon! REALLY hoping it's not the control panel itself.....
Thanks for any and all advice!
