GE part number WE04X23220 main control board MUST be programmed after installation for the part to work with the dryer. The main control board is two electronic boards connected together by a wire spline and mounted in a plastic housing. The front board is the User Interface (UI) board and the rear board is the Machine Control board. When the main control board is replaced, the new board MUST be programmed with a model ID code. The model ID consists of the “User Interface Mode Type” and the “Heater Type”. The User Interface Mode Type is a number currently between 0 and 3. The Heater Type will be either an “E” for electric or a “g” for gas. Follow the instructions below to program the board. When the main control board has been replaced, it may sometimes power up with all of the LED’s blinking. If this is the case, follow only steps 5 through 10 below. Otherwise, follow all of the steps from the beginning.
