If you can still select a cycle and it just beeps when you push the start button, that means the washer thinks the lid isn't shut so it's telling you to shut the lid. Now if you've already tried unplugging the washer and that didn't reset the issue, the lid latch assembly needs to be replaced I'm sorry to say. Below is a link to the part you'd need to order and replace for your model number.
