Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

The model number you gave is for a dishwasher. Is the control panel beeping? Also, which lights are lit up from LEFT to RIGHT on the progress cycle? There are eight lights. Example: (1st, 5th, 8th).

It does beep once every minute or so.
Cycle lights for Heavy, Fast and Rise light up at the same time when and for about a minute after power button is pressed and "5 min" is displayed on panel.
If start button is pressed, machine will wash for 5 min then stop. If start button is not pressed, the display show a rapid repeated count down of cycle mins like 100, 81, 62,45, 30, 10, 5.. then all over again.

ok, this is just a shorted control board then unfortunately. You'd need to order and replace the control board in order to correct this issue I'm affraid. The part is about $150-200.
