Hello Julien, thank you for your inquiry!

Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like your laundry center is experiencing an issue with the power supply. Either the power supply is not connected correctly or it's an internal power supply issue within the unit. Regrettably, this is not a simple DIY job. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified service provider through the manufacturer website.

OK I had this issue as well. I ended up opeing up the dryer and cleaning all the connections. After that it came right back up. It would start with the displaying going haywire. Easy fix and saves you a tech coming out.
1. Take off lid
2. open up the buttons with 2 screws in back
3. Pull electric wire connection and blow out.
4. unscrew 2 screws top front. Covered by rubber stops
5. Lift Lid and blow out. Sensor on the left top.

Worked for me.

Dryer stpped working

with power disconnected
if any wire disconnected before any test, reconnect & test dryer, reconnect wires after each test
disconnect wires from start button and test, conduct when pushed, no conduct when release
if fail replace start button test dryer
disconnect wires from door switch and test, conduct when pushed, no conduct when release
if fail replace door switch test dryer
follow leads from start button to relay(relay is first device connected to start button), and make sure all wires connected at both ends. If any wires disconnected, test dryer
locate thermostats and thermal fuses on fan housing and ducts
individually disconnect wires from each and test. conduct good, no conduct fail
replace any failed thermal fuse or thermostat test dryer
if all prior test OK
replace relay, test dryer

The Dryer wont start.

Often the main wiring connection from the house at the dryer burns, and the connection breaks. Verify the connection at the back of dryer, and if visually you can't she the brake then check for voltage (240). If there is not enough voltage at the terminal block-replace the terminal block and the cable.
