Resolved Question:

We have had this unit for about 4 years. All of a sudden, the lights come on as if we are going to wash a load of laundry. This happens at all hours of the day and night. We are not getting any error codes, but it beeps and then we must hit the pause button and it finally shuts off, but last night we had to unplug the unit. What if anything can we do to stop this? The serial number isGLTF2940ES3.
Thank you.

Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.

 

This means the central control unit has failed, it will need to be replaced you can order this at the following link, http://www.repairclinic.com/PartDetail/Central-Control-Unit-/137006000/1472564?modelNumber=GLTF2940ES3 this has button contacts in the unit that are contacting without being touched essentially starting itself or at least lighting up the control as if you push the buttons, here's the diagram it's number one on the diagram, if you take the top off the washer you can access the screw is to remove the control panel, you need to also take screws out behind the dispenser it's easier pull the dispenser completely out, hope this it makes is useful, thanks and well wishes, Bryan
