Is it only the detergent? What about the bleach and softener?

Can you also tell me how old this is please?



Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The machine is 2 years old. We only use the detergent. The machine went "nuts" the other day. Lights flashing, beeping & the drum would make one rotation with the door open. We unplugged it. Noticed that fabric softener and bleach reservoirs are filled with water.

This sounds like a bad control board.

Un plug the machine for 30 minutes and try it again. Let me know if it has reset
