Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one who will try to assist you today. Sorry to hear you are still having trouble with your washer. What I am going to do is try to walk you through diagnostic cycle so we can see if any codes are coming up.

(plugged in with all indicators off).

movement using the cycle selector knob.

, sequence “a” through

“e” must be completed within

6 seconds

.

LEDs (except for Lid Locked) flashing

ON and OFF in half-second intervals.

NOTE:

LED names may vary between

makes and models.
