U12 is a heating element or drive, electronic fault, it also maybe the thermistor or thermostat itself, however without examining the unit it is hard to tell?

Else one should contact a local or head office from Panasonic, and ask for a referral to an authorised service center, when in touch here organise a service call and when they arrive then ask ONLY for a "Quote" for the proposed repairs. When then appraised of the prospective costings, then one can make up ones mind as to what to do, repair or replace?
