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

So unfortunately, the only two things that would cause your issue are either the touchpad or the control board. Now since the start/pause button is not lighting, that means that the start button on the control panel itself has just failed for one reason or another. There isn't much you can do but to order and replace the touch control panel, but if you're handy this should take you less than 30 minutes to complete. Now there are a few touchpads listed for your particular model number which are white, so you'll want to call or and give them your full model and serial number so they can determine which serial break you have and which part number you need. is who I would recommend just because this is an issue that you can't test to be 100% certain and must just go off the symptoms. alows you to return parts if you end up not needing them unlike most places.
