Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! The erratic behavior and clicking noise is indicative of an electronic control failure. Does the clicking come from the area of the electronic control panel?

from back bottom its couple of clicks it appends after pressing on and off button
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
noise is more like from power module I will check it
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

Look for any poor solder connections or discoloration of the circuit board that would indicate heat damage. Let me know what you find.

hi clicking comes from ADW1212T power relay on board
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

So the control module will likely need to be replaced.

CONTROL MODULE ON THE DOOR OR POWER MODULE BOTTOM ONE CLICKING ONE
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 2 years ago

The one with the relay mounted on it that you found to be clicking.
