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

So are the lights on the control panel always blinking for a normal load? Or are you saying that only after you push and hold the start button the light flashes?

they are blinking for a normal load ..before pushing the start button

OK so unfortunately that shouldn't be happening unless the inter face control board is going out. Try to just unplug the washer for 60 seconds to see if the electronics will reset. If that doesn't work, then you'll need to order and replace the interface control board which unfortunately is about $200-250 or so.

Hi the answer you gave me was not right . I need a total different part that I diagnosed on my own

I'm not sure what you're talking about since the interface control board is the only one that can cause the issue you described, but have a nice day.
