Thanks Larry, the reset kinda work. It went thru a full diagnastic. When we went to run it the only working part is Sen wash and heated dry but it's running. I lookess at the inside of the control panel and the ribbon cable connecting to the main control board has black marks on it.
i have seem that many times ,, go ahead and use it and if it acts stupid some more then you will have to replace the control board
