Weird display on Samsung dryer
« on: January 04, 2019, 01:40:33 PM »

I put a new control board in this customer's dryer. The heater relay was stuck on. But the new board and everything tested fine. She sent me a text saying that it seemed to finish the cycle fine but this was on the display. Anybody know what it'
 means?

This is normal when you have wrinkle prevent option on. The Wrinkle Prevent option can be selected or deselected for every cycle. It is 90 minutes long and the dryer keeps running for the first 20 minutes of the 90 minutes. After that, the motor cycles off and on for the remaining 70 minutes; 5 minutes off and 10 seconds on. During this 90 minutes, the Wrinkle Prevent light on the display is flashing and the display itself will appear to have marching ants going around the outer perimeter of the display.
