first unplug the washer and count to 30 and then plug it back up and see if it reset the board and if not you will have to take off the top and reach down to the latch and pull up on the release tap and if its not on this model then you will have to take the lower front panel off and reach up and pull down on the release tap and then you can start it again / larry
