Try taking the control board out and check for burned off traces. Solder back those points and it should work again. Just did it to mine and now it runs again. Still flashes PAU though.

If the door switch or the door-switch actuator is defective, the dryer won't work and you need to replace the failed component. The switch is inside the dryer main housing near the door frame. Sometimes you need to raise or open the top or front of the dryer to reach the switch.

LOC means it thinks the control panel is locked.
This gives the ERR indication when you push the buttons.
To unlock it you need to hold down the Options and Select buttons together until it reacts.

It means the control is locked to avoid having someone accidentally start or stop the dryer. Press and hold the Options and Select buttons for 10 seconds or until the “LOC” on the display is cleared. Locking the control is done the same way it is unlocked.

this could be something as simple as a loose or stretched out belt to a jammed pressure roller to a bad motor. could also be the drum is not mounted right due to worn out or missing felt pads and is causing a binding at the front or rear of the unit.

It may be your heating elements, but I would check your circuit breaker to make sure its putting out 110V on each phase as the heating elements are the only part in your dryer that use 220V, so if the circuit breaker is not outputing enough voltage that could be your problem (it's also a less labor intensive fix). NOTE: IF YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE YOUR CIRCUIT BREAKER TURN OFF THE MAIN BREAKER TO HOUSE TO POWER DOWN THE BUSS BAR THAT THE BREAKER IS PLUGGED INTO.
