Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

Does the lock actually work and lock or just the lock light is flashing?

how do you put the unit into diagnostic mode?
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok

Turn the main dial counterclockwise about 2 full revolutions stopping at 12 oclock, then turn it SLOWLY (1/2 sec between clicks)

3 Clicks forwards

1 Click Backwards

1 Click forward

At this point all lights should light up on the panel do they?

i un pluged...followed what you said..only the fill light blinking...should i redo this again
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

If only the fill light continues to flash and it will do nothing else the control board is defective. It should have reset or done some other things by now, you just need the main control board in the console to repair this issue, they fail a lot.

Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 2 years ago

Based on the model number you had supplied that is the right part now if you have a 1-4 at the end that would be a different board, but with no numbers at the end of the model the one I listed is the right one.
