Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! Are the lights flashing fast or slow and is there any pattern at all?

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Your touch panel is experiencing a failure. You may need to replace the control panel but there is a trick you can try first. Cut the power to the appliance. Use a hair dryer to heat the panel up until very warm while "massaging" the buttons. Often times, this will restore operation. Be sure to get the panel very warm but not hot enough to damage the plastic. If this does not work, the panel will need to be replaced. Let me know what happens and I can get you the correct part information, if necessary.

No luck w/ the massaging ... doesn;'t the replacement part come w/ the plastic housing anyway? oh yea ... any chance i could follow the ribbon to the jack and disconnect the faulty button (find it by ohming it /testing voltage) i'm guessing it may by the "Rinse Only" button

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
You could but you cannot "disconnect" any of the buttons. The traces all have to jive with what the computer is looking for. The correct panel for that model is available below. Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

hey .... guess what the thing starting working after the control panel cooled down! Your the man! ... PS .... Aren't those just simple "Bubble" switches that would normally be in the "Open" circuit position? And wouldn't wouldn't cutting the tracer have the same effect as an "open" connection ?

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
Yes, and the control would pick it up because the traces are shared, not each button has an individual set of traces. That is awesome that it started working, great job!
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

troubles .... i can't seem to select any options now.. .. it's running but the heat Dry/Lock button is always on (when the washer is on) This is the one that i'm supposed to hold for 4 seconds to lock/unlock the options (i cant' get it to go out)... you think this is the panel again or an issue with the control board?


 

Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.
It is definitely the panel. It will likely need to be replaced.
