you will need to open the control panel and once you open it tell me if you see a 3 wire mulex connector going into the base of the cabinet let me know once you see it unplug the machine first

hese a video to watch to help you along just watch it to the point of the counsel being lifted up

Customer: replied 7 years ago.

When you said go to master control, the last time I was into a washer control box it was in the back. I went to the back and opened it and found nothing. Then you sent the video link explaining how to remove the hood, after I removed the back and now I cannot get the back to go in place squarely. I have a technition coming this morning to repair the unit of let me know the cost of the repair to then determine whether I should just purchase a new unit instead of spending almost the same repairing.


William, I am sorry, but I do not agree to release the acceptance funds to you for your instruction. Perhaps you should consider sending the video first or provide more definitive instruction for the next inquiry.
