Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today

its not responding to the start/pause and reselect the cycle when you try that ? have you tried setting the delay for 1 hour and waiting to see if it starts then ? also try unplugging the machine for 5 minutes then try and reset the control. in the meantime I'm looking through the service manual now.

I did turn the circuit breaker off. The machine is in too tight a spot for me to get behind it to unplug it. Wouldn't turning the breaker off work just as well? I didn't leave it off more than a few seconds, though.
Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
yes that will do the same thing. try leaving it off for 5 minutes. according to the manual the way you are trying to cancel this is the right way. the child lock light isn't on correct ?

Whe I turn the machine on, everything lights up as if it's ready to start the cycle, only it doesn't. Yes, the child lock is on. Should I try to turn off the child lock?
Expert:  Bryan replied 4 years ago.
yes thats the problem , the control is locked unlock the child lock, press the chime and delay start pads at the same time for 3 seconds. this will unlock it and then you can cancel the delay start.

I will recommend this website on my facebook page. Is there a way to leave feedback for you or the website? I think I clicked on "accept answer twice". I won't be charged twice, will I?
