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

Do you have a model number so that I can better assist you? It should be located on a sticker just inside the door way.

OK so to the right of the START button and to the left of the DELAY button, there is a lock button that doesn't really look like a button. Either way, press and hold the lock button for 5 seconds and the control panel should unlock.

If that doesn't work then try to unplug the unit for 60 seconds to see if the electronics will reset. If nothing works, then unfortunately the interface control board will need to be ordered and replaced because it's shorted for one reason or another. The interface control board is the part right behind your display and costs about $250. The part number is XXXXX
