@bobbyv_26 ,Bob, the door may not be fully shut or thermal fuse faulty. Found good info. for dryer just beeps and no error code, link below. Both point to a bad thermal fuse. 3rd link shows testing and replacement of thermal fuse. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.

@bobbyv_26 unplug the unit from the outlet and let it sit for awhile. Then try again. Keeping it unplugged should reset it. After that you want to try to run the diagnostics code as outlined in here HE3 Techsheet. Let us know what you find so we can assist you further.

I have the same problem. Only code I got was an 03 on the START touchpad when I did the diagnostic test.


@suzy78 error code F:03 when you ran the diagnostics? Same washer/model?

I had the same problem but found we were pressing the buttons too hard, just a light press was required to get the dryer to start.
