Thank you, ***** ***** that the door switch is working. So, can you do this, please?
■ Press any 3 keys in the sequence 1-2-3-1-2-3-
1-2-3 with no more than 1 second between keys.
■ The Service Diagnostics Cycle will start when the
door is closed.
Do all of the lights come on? If so, allow about 30 seconds then press cancel. Any change after pressing cancel and trying another cycle?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
1-2-3 series with the door open then close it?
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
If you can do it with the door closed, do it that way, please.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Lights are on.
Trying cancel
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Okay, keep me posted.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No change. Cancel ran another drain cycle, but start did the same thing again -- lights for about 45 seconds otherwise no response.
Expert:  Kelly replied 2 years ago.
Okay, so since it goes into diagnostics and will drain, I believe the User Interface panel is faulty, specifically the start button. That is part number 6 in the diagram at the URL below.

That part is accessed by removing the screws from around the inner door and separating the panels.
