I have a Samsung front load dryer model #DV50k8600EV/A3 and my power button has stopped working. All other push buttons on the machine are working without issue and the machine dries fine. If I cycle the main power breaker off/on then the dryer will turn on and allow me to dry clothes without issue. It's when I need to turn the power on or off that I have the issue. I've inspected all the connections to and from the control panel and don't see and obvious issue here. No signs of damage or arcing anywhere around the panel.

Thoughts?

Wait, if you cycle the main power breaker off/on in your home breaker box then the power button works? Or the power automatically comes on WITHOUT pressing the power button?

The power comes on to the dryer when the breaker is cycled off/on.

Unfortunately, I don't know what the cause is then, sorry.

Hopefully another tech. or member that's had this same problem can shed some light on the fix.
