Hello have you had any recent power surges or outages in your area

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No, nothing unusual at all.
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.

Goodmorning if nothing unusual has taken place then .can you remove the top panel on the washer to check every connection that goes to the computer it seems you may have a faulty user interface

I would call but I'm on disability/ fixed income my account is empty until next month, Here is what has happened since we last spoke. I removed the top and bottom panels and unplugged and replugged all of the connectors, I removed the door latch and checked it out, it seems ok but before the door can lock it starts flashing off and on the moment I push the start button. It won't cancel and I have to cut power to it to get it to reset. Sometimes I push the start button and nothing happens except the tones it makes when you push that button. Very frustrating I can't even get a fault code!!!

I've already repaired the mcu on the bottom, look at the Sears, parts page you directed me to and you will see there are two control boards both on top both cost several hundred dollars so I want to get the right one. Please check and advise.
Thank you.
