Hi
Need a few questions asked first.
1 Does the unit power off when you press the button?
2 Have you unplugged the unit for 30 minutes?
3 Do any of the features not work when you press a function?

What I am looking at is a control panel failure, as these dryer are all electronic this is common when small touch switches get crossed.

Door is ajar message when shut light comes on but doesnt run


That's because the door switch isn't getting pushed when you're closing the dryer door for some reason or another. Its located at the top of the door. Try pushing the switch by hand and seeing if the light shuts off when you manually push it.

My light doesnt come on when i break the sensor....and my learn light blinks none stop


Random blinking of the learn light is normal.

To have your lights come on automatically when you walk into an open garage, you must START with the lights ON. If you don't want that feature and you want to turn it off, you must START with the lights OFF.

To turn the feature on, turn the lights on manually with the wall switch, then press and hold the LIGHT button for about 10 seconds until the motor unit light bulbs flash. Now, if the light bulbs are on, manually turn them out and then walk out through the open door. The light bulbs should come on.

To disable this feature, start with the light bulbs OFF and everything else is the same.

When i open the door my interier light do not come on automaticly except i manual turn it on.


if you look closely in the door jamb you will find a little push button switch. when the door is closed it is an open and when the door is open it is closed and puts a ground on the bulb to turn it on. your problem sounds like it is in that switch. those switches are cheap and they are dealer, not parts store, items. generally either screw or snap in depending on the age of the car.

Garage door opener will not continue to open garage door.


You say your door won't open and then you say your door won't close. Anyway you have a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. If you tweak them and the lights don't come on then you have either a wiring problem or a bad logic board.

Which dishwashere auto resume wash cycle when door is closed?


All the tall tub dishwashers made by Whirlpool (inc. Kenmore and Kithcenaid) must have the start button pressed after adding a dish. If the start button control light is blinking, you must press start. On those models with buttons on the top of the door you must, in addition, close the door within aprox 5 seconds after pushing start. Hope this helps. Ken

The light on my garage door opener will not go out. It should go on and off automatically with each opening or closing. I had to unscrew the bulb, because I knew it would burn out anyway with continuous...


MANY NEWER DOOR OPENERS ACTIVATE THE LIGHT EACH TIME YOU BREAK THE SAFETY SENSOR BEAM.

THE LIGHT SHOULD STAY ON FOR ABOUT 4.5 MINUTES EACH TIME THE OPENER MOVES OR THE BEAM IS BROKEN.

DOES YOU WALL CONTROL HAVE A LIGHT BUTTON??
IF NOT THE CIRCUIT BOARD STILL HAS THE ABILITY TO WORK WITH ONE THAT DOES. I HAVE SEEN SOME WHERE THE ONLY WAY TO TURN OFF THE LIGHT WAS TO CONNECT A 3 BUTTON WALL STATION & TURN OFF THE LIGHT - THEN RECONNECT THE PUSH BUTTON - OR YOU COULD LEAVE THE 3 BUTTON WALL CONTROL.

YOU MAY ALSO TRY UNPLUGGING THE UNIT FOR ABOUT 5 MIN. THIS RESETS MANY OF THE CIRCUITS ON THE BOARD.
HOPE THIS HELPS
