When you select any auto dry cycle the selector light will only select quick dry or touch up no matter where the selector is pointing. Sometimes when you keep pressing the heat setting button it will finally allow you to select an auto cycle. At this time that does not even help.

AD is auto dry you may need to clean the sensor or you may have a fauilty one ...Auto Dry
Loads dried using the Towels, Heavy Duty, Normal, Perm
Press, and Delicates cycles will dry automatically at the
selected temperature to the desired dryness level. The
dryer uses sensing bars to sense the moisture level of
the load as it tumbles through heated air. Auto Dry
cycles save time and energy and protect fabrics. The
estimated drying time will be displayed for about 5
minutes, then the outside of the display will light up in
a circular track to indicate the drying time is automatically
being determined by the sensors. When the load
has reached the selected dryness level, it will continue
to tumble, unheated, during a Cool Down period. This
helps reduce wrinkling and makes items easier to handle
during unloading. The estimated Cool Down time will be
Drying time varies depending on size and dampness of
load and fabric type. If the load is too small or almost
dry, the sensing bars may not detect enough moisture
to continue the cycle and the cycle may end after a few
minutes. Select a Timed Dry setting to dry such loads.
Room temperature and humidity, type of installation and
electrical voltage or gas pressure can also affect drying
For cycle selection turn the knob on the front of the
dryer control panel. The light will illuminate next to
the cycle selected. The following is a brief description
for what cycles should be chosen for certain items and
materials to be dried.
This is this is the "program Timeout Fault". Meaning the drying time has exceeded program time for that cycle.Press Pause Cancel and SELECT buttons for 6
seconds to exit test modes. Position cycle selector to NORMAL,
temperature selector to HIGH HEAT and touch START. Check for anything
that would extend dry times such as: no heat, restricted vent, blower
fan blade broken or loose, dryer installed in closet with solid door,
or bad connection in moisture sensor bar circuit or dirty bars. If
dryer operates normally but code returns, replace electronic control. Hope i helped you.
try timed dry cycle instead of the auto-sensing setting. In your drum if you have auto dry such as less dry normal dry and more dry, There is a sensor sometimes in the drum and sometimes in the exhaust right after the blower. If in the drum then your clothes brush by this and if moisture is sensed then it keeps on drying. With your rack the clothes can't touch the sensor so it tells your dial to turn and that items are dry which in fact are not. Try this and see how it does.
Hi and welcome to FixYa! If you are talking about the cycle selector buttons up on the top edge of the drawer, I can help you with this. When the selector button gets wet or has moisture buildup or soap residue, it will not sense the touch from your fingertip. It is not a mechanical button per se. If you take a clean dry cloth and wipe the recessed area where your fingertip touches the button, it will respond 100% better than it will when it is dirty or just plain wet. I show my customers this practically every day. The only other thing that will cause this is the tab behind the control panel sometimes cracks and will not hold the computer tightly against the underside of the drawer edge. This is rare though. Clean the surface of the drawer edge and it will change cycles again like new.
