Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! If unplugging it for at least 5 minutes to reset the electronic control did not reset and allow the control to come on, either the power supply to the washer from your home is not good or the control is faulty. Can you plug something else into the washer outlet to see if it works, please?
