The main board is bad 99.9% of the time when this happens. Rarely ever is the interface board at fault. Buy the board and to be safe buy it from a vendor that allows returns so you are not stuck with something you may not need should you find additional issues with the washer that make it not cost-effective to repair. is one such vendor. Serial numbers are important when buying LG parts, so let the vendor look up what you need.
