Before you call for service

User warnings

Your dryer is capable of diagnosing a number of its own problems. It will sound a continuous series of beeps and display a code when it has a problem that you can correct yourself. All control panel lights will turn off and a code will be displayed to inform you what the problem is. To stop the beeps sounding, press any button on the control panel. Do not try to continue your drying cycle once you stop the noise. You must address the problem the dryer is alerting you to.

Check this chart before you call for service.
