Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.
Thge unit will lock itself out if the access key is not used. This is a security feature to keep people from opening the unit and keying in free washes or dry cycles.
Once you have the key the unit should be fine. If not it is just coincidence that the display went out.
Please let me know if you have any other immediate concerns.If not please select a positive rating at this time. Doing so will not close your question, and after you rate my service you may ask any followup questions you like. All at no additional charge.Thank you for the opportunity to serve you.
