Display was frozen

First I performed a keypad check by measuring the contacts on the keypad connector per the service manual I found online. All buttons appeared to be functional. I purchased both the LED Electronic Board and the KeyPad. Turns out the problem was with the KeyPad (stuck key) even though all key seemed to have checked out. So now the dryer is functioning with just the replaced Keypad and I have an extra LED Electronic Control Board.

I had a chirp coming from the unit when it was off.

I replaced the part and it chirped..then stopped and it has been fine for several weeks and now it chirps again. It is like there is a cricket in there. I am hoping it stops again.

Code 8.8. On display, would not start

Removed back 4 screws to move top off. Found it difficult to remove top but finally did it. Unscrewed 4 screws holding down circuit board. Drew myself a cheat sheet of where cable where and then removed cables. Two of the smaller cables were stuck and hard to remove. Once everything unplugged took out board and noticed the fuses were brown. Put in new board, hooked in cables and screwed in the 4 screws. Put top on and screwed in 4 screws. Plugged dryer back in and it worked perfectly. Saved $100 doing it myself.

The dyer would not start, just show an era code"88"

This problem was the result of a lighting strike that actaully happened a year ago. The dryer still worked but there was a special routine to get it to start. It finally would not start at all and i assumed and ordered the control unit and it arrived the next day. It took just about five minutes to install, just remove to the old board and disconnect the plug-ins and tighten a few screws, much easier and less expensive than calling a service technician

Burnt control board particularly the heatin element and motor relays.

Unplug dryer cord!!!

Loosen and removed screws (phillips and hex head) at the back of the console(display). This allows for the removal of the console. Remove control board and replace with new part.

The harness wiring is easier installed with the drum removed; 1. Remove dryer lid by taking out 2 screws securing the hinges. 2. Remove 2 screws at the left side to allow removal of the front panel. (Note that there are wirings in the front panel, so it is best to just set the panel close by for rewiring) 3. This expose the 3/8" hex screws securing the hook holding the top panel. Remove screws and lift top panel for removal. 4. Loosen drum belt with the idler and remove drum for easier access to the wirings. 5. Remove old harness and install the new replacement part placing corresponding terminal as the old ones are removed. (Note that the old harness can be completely stripped out then run the new harness-for the experts).

While the heating elements and the motor are accessible, check with the multimeter to make sure none is grounded or shorted (remember the condition of the control board may have been caused by high current flow).

Replace the drum and set the belt. Install top panel with the retainer hook. Install front panel and the dryer lid.

Plug the dryer cord and run the appliance. Good job!

Comment: The original control may have a design flaw (relay contact rating) as the components that draw higher amps(current) are fine yet the contacts including the wiring terminations were melted. Do you know if there was a recall on this product? It almost caused a fire...

Led readout displayed '88" (block lettering); inoperative.

Opened the box and felt that the packaging was too minimal; needed more cushioning and static wrap around circuit board. One tie-wrap was broken around one component on the circuit board so I replaced it myself. Contacted PartSelect to let them know about packaging and also asked to ensure that I had received the correct part because the components were not arranged the same as the board that came off. I was told that it was the correct part. (1) Unplugged dryer. (2) Removed hardware (screws & nutscrews) from back of display support. (3) Detached display support and laid flat on top of dryer for access to wiring. (4) Took digital picture of wiring connecting to circuit beard (old habit) even though all is color-coded but markings are a bit small. (5) Disconnected all wiring (some being tight) and unscrewed the board which was burned in places. (6) Installed new part (reverse order). In all, not hard at all. PartSelect customer suport people are very nice. After all said and done, found part was available locally with life-time warrenty for $10 more; PartSelect warrenty is only 1 year. I paid $175 which included shipping.

CustomerJeffrey from Park City UT

Dryer flashed 88 and would not start

Diagnosis was more difficult than the repair (90 minutes of diagnosis and research time, maybe 30 minutes of repair time).

Researched 88 error codes online and, after finding the repair manual for this model, discovered the dryer would not go into diagnosis mode to return an actual error code. Ordered the new board as a result.

Installed the new board (8 screws, 2 bolts) and transferred the plugs in about 15 minutes, then when I went to test the machine I received a PF message on the new board and the dryer still wouldn't run.

Did some more research on the web and learned that PF refers to power failure. Pulled off the power cord panel (2 bolts) to see my hot lead had burned up and it split in half as soon as I touched it. Ordered a new cord and installed it (another 10 minutes), now the dryer now runs like a champ.
