I had an E3 error, then the unit stopped responding to any

Resolved Question:

I had an "E3" error, then the unit stopped responding to any input. I unplugged it, plugged it back in and nothing works. No display, can't open the door - have a load with water in the drum.

None of the keypad controls work, the power switch does nothing, pressing the dial also does nothing.

That code is a failure in the main computer board...Or wire connections from board to components...I would check all connections before replacing board...

How do you "check all connections"?
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 7 years ago.
You would need to remove the top lid...You can do this by removing the screws along the top back of lid....Then slide lid back and off...From there check all the connections on the back of control panel....This code can also point to a bad Hall sensor...The sensor keeps the drum from going out of balance.,,,But from what you are describing it sure sounds like a bad board...Loose connection or no power to unit...
