Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your washer today. Alright, lets see what error code you're getting if you are getting one. Press and hold the Start AND Pause/Cancel buttons simultaneously and all LED's should go blank. After a few seconds, the control will signal the stored code using beeps and lights. As long as the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons are pressed, this error will continue to be displayed.

Also can I get the full model number to better assist you? It should be located on a sticker just inside the door way.

It Beep's and lights are flashing
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 months ago.

In the models that DO NOT have a digital readout display the failure code is signaled by the five indicator lights flashing Door Lock, Wash, Rinse, Final Spin, and Control. These five lights will flash the number of times for the first number after the 'E'. The Start indicator light will also flash the number of times for the second number after the 'E'.
To stop the beeping and flashing these errors can cause, select the Pause/Cancel button. Example - If the five indicator lights flash twice (2) and the start indicator light flashes four (4) times, the error code would be E24.

Can you tell me what error your'e getting?

It beeps 9 times
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 months ago.

Sorry, the beeping doesn't really help, it's the flashing. Can you watch the lights flashing? The 5 lights should flash together a certain amount of times, then the start light will flash on it's own a different amount of times. Can you tell me how much each set is flashing?

It's flashing 9 times and the start doesn't flash
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 months ago.

OK perfect I just wanted to make sure that was accurate. The only thing that can really cause this error is the front display control board. Try to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work then below is a link to the control board you'd need to order and replace to resolve the issue.
