I had the same problem and figured if the lint sensor is clogged, covered or otherwise gummed up with lint, dirt, hair, etc then this will continue to happen regardless of wether the lint trap is clean.
So I took my compressor and blew out the slot where the trap slides into...stuff flew everywhere (so watch your eyes or wear goggles). I then vaccumed it up and did it again... and again and again each time loads of stuff came out. Once nothing blew out I loaded the dryer and have not had the problem since...
This makes sense right? so if you can try this solution.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I'm so sorry but this forum is not able, nor in a position, to supply any type of service manual, parts list, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)
Also members on Fixya are not 'affiliated' to, or representative of, any manufacturer at all, just using their experience gained probably over many years.
Have you tried the manufacturer's web site direct? Unfortunately many will supply only to registered agents/engineers for obvious reasons;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Possibly heater fault....if you set unit to, for example, a 40 degree wash, the machine will just keep washing unit it reaches selected temp, then drain and do the rinses. If the heater is open circuit then it will wash and wash and wash until the module times out because it is not getting there and continue to rinses, making the programs excessively long. (You may also find, if it has a display that it sit at 0.01 for a long time at the end of the cycle. Not sure of your model as you have not posted it, but if you go through the test below you can test the heater.
1. Put main dial to off
2. Press and hold start button whilst turning dial one click to left (easycare 30).
3. When display show 8.88 or two of the progress light come on, release the start button
4. Turn dial anticlockwise to 90 cotton (take the long way, NOT thru OFF or you'll have to start over)
5. Press start
The tub will fill a little and if the heater is ok, after a few minutes you will hear it 'kettling', the drum does not turn during this test.
If you have a meter that checks amp draw, if the heater is ok it should read around 9 amps.
Hope this helps
