I have found some similar threads regarding this issue and am thinking it may be the pcb but want to make sure. The dryer runs through it’s normal cycle and once the timer is finished (countdown works normally and the unit beeps and the display turn off) the unit continues to run. The drum spins (no heat) until the door is opened. As soon as I close the door it starts spinning again. I can restart a timed dry cycle and it will heat up and dry perfectly but will continue to run when the timer expires. I unplugged it yesterday and it seemed to “reset” itself and worked normal for one cycle but started acting up again on the next load. Any idea as to what’s causing my issues? Thanks.
