Thank you. Remove the top cover from the machine and locate the machine control in the upper RH corner. On the side of that control is a wire harness that is labeled MI3. With the machine unplugged, carefully disconnect that MI3 cable, plug the washer back in and see if the control will then turn on. Let me know what happens, please.
