I am unable to enter test mode. Unit has been unplugged for 30 plus seconds, spin and soil buttons depressed simultaneously and held while power button was depressed. No buzzer. I tried different combinations time with buttons depressed. Machine was unplugged after each attempt.
Is the unit empty at this point or is there still water in it?
I assume that it is empty. As far as I know it did not shut off mid cycle. There is no visible water in the drum.
Unfortunately if the unit will not respond to basic inputs at the diagnoistivc levels then the main control board is bad and will just need to be replaced.
Sorry for the bad news. I wish it could be better.

Is it possible that I am not holding, pushing the buttons for the correct time period? How long should I push and hold spin and soil buttons before pressing power button? Should all three be pressed at the same time? How long should I need to hold all three buttons? Are all three buttons supposed to be held at one time provided the spin and soil are depressed first?
5 seconds should be plenty of time. If it doesnt work then the board will need to be replaced.
Sorry to be a pain but I want to be certain I am doing this correctly. Push and hold Spin and Soil buttons at the same time for 5 seconds. While still depressing the spin and soil buttons press and hold the power button. Should all three be depressed at the same time? If so, how long should I hold the power button? Or should I only press the power button once to activate the test cycle?
No pain at all. Just press and release the button is all that is needed.
After pushing and holding Spin and Soil buttons at the same time for 5 seconds do I continue to hold those buttons while pushing the power button?
Press spin and soil buttons. DO NOT release them.
Hold for 5 seconds.
Press and release the start button.
Release spin and soil buttons.
Beeper should sound.
If it doesnt and nothing happens the control board is toast.
