Welcome and thank you for your question. I will be the professional that will be assisting you.
Hi, the only reset is to unplug it for 2-3 minutes. If it's an electrical glitch, that may fix it. If the control lock is on, the lock needs to be held down. On the far right side you'll see button that says "Control Lock" hold it in for 3-5 seconds. If you do not see "Control Lock" look for "End Of Cycle" button and hold it.
With the correct model number from the sticker around the door jamb area I could tell you which button you have for sure.
It sounds like the control lock is on and simply needs to be unlocked? Let me know what happens.
