Even using the key dance to put it into diagnostics will not come up?

I don't know what the key dance is, however, I believe that to be irrelevant because it simply has no power to it...the power to the outlet is fine (no breakers popped, other appliances will work when using that same outlet) "powering on" sounds coming from it...just blank.


See what it does please?

I did try that before, but re-plugged the machine and attempted it again - machine remains dark and silent.

For the unit not to power up is going to be the CCU and not the MCU causing you the problem. You can click on the blue link below to order the correct part for your washing machine.

the original error codes were the F01 and E02 - is it possible (or likely) that it is the MCU also?

I am going to doubt it, But it could have gotten a false code from the CCU that it couldn't communicate, if the MCU was bad it would still power up though...

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

okay...let me give you the last bit of omitted wife was the one who reported the error codes. The machine had started washing (clothes got fully wet) but she never heard it going to wash...that's when she got the codes. Using the owner's manual, she figured out how to get the door open and the wet clothes out. Those codes remained in the display. She read somewhere on-line about the key-dance and attempted it, which didn't work. After unplugging it twice (both times the machine came on and showed all of the lights) that third time is when it wouldn't come on. I don't know if this changes anything, I just wanted to make sure that you had all of the info to make an informed determination. I know I'm grasping here, is there a chance the poser cord has loosened causing those errors?

I guess you can see if the outlet is still live that it is plugged into, I never asked that?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yeah...tried it might be a stretch. So, replacing the CCu should fix there any way to be sure, other than just trying that, first?

Just replacing it is the only way, they don't give pin outs for testing on these models...
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

okay, thank you...last question...difficulty in replacing the unit?

Takes 10 to 20 minutes to do.
