I am preparing a thesis template. Therefore, I use many packages and codes. I need a centered section in the table of contents (see mainsection in the code) without page numbers. I have to write the first and the second at the beginning of the mainsections in Turkish. I managed to do this, but the writing in the table of contents of the first section/subsection/subsection/paragraph after each mainsection is incorrect. Moreover, dots after the first section/subsection/subsection/paragraph are not appearing/running. I also need the dots. Can you help me fix this? The MWE and their outputs are as follows:

I solved the problem when I wrote the code \addtocontents{toc}{\protect\setcounter{}{}} after the \mainsection code, The table of contents was corrected.

\mainsection{FIRST MAIN SECTION TITLE}\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\setcounter{}{}}

\mainsection{SECOND MAIN SECTION TITLE}\addtocontents{toc}{\protect\setcounter{}{}}
