Hello. Thank you for letting me help you today.

This is a common issue and can usually be quickly fixed by a reset of the main control board. You can do one of two things. First, with washer in standby mode, power on to wash but no buttons or options selected, press and hold the power button for about ten seconds. Then let go. Second, simply unplug the washer for one minute then plug it back in. These options will quickly reset the main board. And you should be able to turn the washer on and have the control board come on an usual.
