Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you!

May I please have your model number so I am able to provide you with accurate, model specific information? The tag is around the opening after the door is opened. It will look like 110.12345678.

Sure thing, thank you! It sounds like the User Interface board may be having issues but we can go through it once we get a model number. It is either a User Interface or main control board issue, so that will give you an idea of where we will be looking. Have a good night, talk to you tomorrow! Just post back and it will alert me when you are available.

Are you there ?
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Thank you! If you remove the top from the machine, you will see the electronic control board right in the front. That is the User Interface, the part I suspect is faulty and will need to be replaced.

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau. They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year! They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!
