No buttona work on the board just says 88

The 88 in the display most likely means you have a stuck or shorted keypad.

If the control senses a keypad pressed for more than 75 seconds then it will display an 8 error.

There is a membrane/interface test that you can enter and run if you don't mind a little do-it-yourself.

The image below will show you how to enter and run the membrane test.

If you can not enter the test or some keypads are not responsive then you will need to replace the console/membrane. You can obtain the console from this link.

Won't start. Light are lit, but the 'start' button does nothing.

If the display shows an '88' then place a heating pad over the display. In a few minutes the '88' code will clear, and the dryer will work. Sounds crazy, but it works for me every time.

The lights on the control are on but the dryer will not start.

If the display shows '88' then place a heating pad on the display. Wait for the display to clear (10 - 15 min) and then the dryer will work. Sounds crazy, but it works for me every time.
