Reply to Chuck G.'s Post: The 'loc' symbol show up in the screen, there is no lock symbol to press. there is a lock light in a column with other lights for wash, spin etc. this light does not illuminate. Under this column of lights is a pause/cancel button. I already tried holding it, no change. I've tried hold it with the adjacent start button as well. no change.
Sorry for the delay, i will research this for you i will respond tomorrow 03MAR2008 / chuck

Thankyou! I promise you $20 additional if I can beat a service call $10 if you can give me anything that cuts down the service price. Thankyou for you efforts.
Ok I think i found it!

Turn the selector knob so the machine comes on then press the "options" and "select" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. See if that works. Hope this helps!
