Hello & Welcome to FixYa
If you have already tried cleaning the vent then the problem is with the Thermal fuse. When the thermal fuse goes bad it cannot be reset and replacing it is recommended repair. It is located on the blower wheel housing inside the rear panel to the exhaust duct. You can test it for continuity before replacing.Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: The dryer has '31' showing

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

The service manual for this dryer is 16023110

From reading the manual there are 2 errors 3 and 1. Error 1 is a thermistor short sensed.

01- Thermistor / If temperature> 200 degrees / Short Sensed for 2 minutes.

Check for:

- Clogged lint screen.

- Restricted vent system.
- Failed thermistor.

Make sure the unit is completely unplugged to do the following steps.

-----Inside the control panel the thermistor wiring is connected to J4 pins 1 and 2
The thermistor should read 10,000 ohms at 70 deg F and 1094 ohms at 150F

03 = Door Circuit Failure

Check for:

- Loose or open wire terminals in Door Sense circuit.


This check you would read from "N" Center terminal of the power cord terminal block to Pin 3 of Conn BB2 on the main control board. (Door Closed) You must read resistance or the door switch has failed.


These are the tests I would have to do if you called for service.


If neither of the above show failures... respond here and we will see what we can sort out via the service manual.


Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

I have a Hotpoint model no HE7L492, all four lights and the start/pause button light are rapidly flashing.


It sounds to me that a reset is in order but I cant tell you how to do that because of the risk to your personal safety.

Could be the door switch or temp sensor. To check the door switch put pressure against the door and see if it stops. Check the slot the door hits to see if there is anything loose in there.

Hotpoint wd440 flashing dryer heat button and onoff button !


I had to have a tech come out for the same problem two weeks ago. They had to clean the lint collector which you cannot get to on your own. He said now that this has been done everytime I use the machine, take the clothes out and then run a rinse spin cycle.

Error code DR


Pull the tech sheet out of the dryer ( behind the lower front access panal ). The lights flashing are trying to tell you a fault code.

A copy:

MODEL DIFFERENCES: • Better models have a digital readout display
• Good models do not have a digital readout display
READING ERROR CODES 1. Position cycle selector knob to the 3 O’clock position.
2. Press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for six seconds.
3. Immediately after, press and hold the START and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously for 4 seconds.
4. Rotate the cycle selector knob to the 2 O’clock position.
On better model dryers, the error code will appear in the digital display. On good models, the five indicator lights of
Drying, Cool Down, Wrinkle Rid, and Clean Lint Filter Spin will flash the number of times for the first digit of the code
and the START indicator light will flash the number of times for the second digit. Take separate counts of each indicator
light, then repeat to confirm in order to be accurate in identifying the proper error code. The code is obtained by counting
the number of times the lights flash. Example E24: The five indicator lights would flash twice indicating the 2 and the
START indicator light will flash four times indicating the 4. The five indicator lights and the START indicator light start
flashing at the same time. The control will pause for 2 seconds, then repeat the code.
Note: A letter appearing in the code stands for a number higher than nine.
A = 10 B = 11 C = 12 D = 13 E = 14 F = 15
Example Code E4A: the first digit would be 4 and the second digit would be 10. If this code would appear on a dryer in
the Good model line, the five indicator lights would blink four times and the START indicator light would blink ten times.
Troubleshoot problem by using chart below.
To move on to the next code, press the OPTIONS button. To clear code, press the Select button.
To exit this mode, simultaneously press and hold the Select and Pause Cancel buttons for six seconds.

3 beeps mean what


If the only thing that happens is three rapid beeps when you select a feature from the console this is usually a symptom of a defective door switch.  The door switch must be closed to complete the circuit from the timer to the heating circuit and drive motor.  If the switch is bad, or the wiring is broken, the dryer will not run.
