Can you check if there is power to the CCU? If so the CCU board is likely defective if nothing lights up at all on the display. That was a common issue on that unit.

I have access to and can see the CCU. Any idea which area to test and what settings to choose on my volt/ohm meter? I grew up w/ vehicles not house electricity. Thnx.

I actually can hear it clicking when I plug the washer in. Wouldn't that indicate it's getting power?

Well...now it seems to be working all of a sudden... ?

You may have a bad connection from the interface board to the CCU. That can happen as well.
