Unreliable buttons - sometimes work, sometimes don't, sometimes completely unresponsive

Hello,

A couple weeks ago, my dryer wouldn't start. The power turned on, all the buttons were in good order, the only problem was that it wouldn't start.
I tried again the next day, and it was back to normal. Since then, I've done about 8-10 loads of laundry, and it's been fine every time.

Two days ago, out of nowhere, it wouldn't start again, so I ordered a thermal fuse.
Right before I replaced it today, I noticed it wouldn't even power on (electricity was not an issue- lights were on inside the machine).
After replacing the fuse, that's when things got real wonky.
The buttons have gone completely nuts - sometimes they work, and sometimes nothing turns on.
Same with the actual drying - sometimes it goes when I press the start button, but most of the times, nothing.
I'm assuming that it is a user interface panel issue, but would like an expert opinion before I make a purchase that will cost me hundreds of dollars.

Thank you in advance!!

Where is this washer located in the USA or South Korea?
