So the cycle buttons are responsive, but the start button is not, correct?

What you need then is the control panel. The panel has the key pad built in to it. If only a few buttons are working and others do not, the error is the keypad. You can order the part at the following site.


To replace it, remove the screws that hold it into the white door liner. Remove the control board. And then remove the screws that hold the panel to the door. It is fairly straight forward.
