I have a whirlpool calypso washer (GVW9959KQ2 the touch buttons

Resolved Question:

I have a whirlpool calypso washer (GVW9959KQ2 the touch buttons do nothing, until I hit cancel/start. Then the extended cycle will light and the cycle signal lights up and there is a number 7. Can this be the touch panel ? I unplugged it, plugged it back in and it does the very same thing ?
