Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Please know that I am not compensated for my time by the site until you rate using the stars at the top of your page. A rating is appreciated once we get to the solution for your appliance issue, thanks! Turn the power totally off to the machine at the breaker for at least 1 hour to reset the electronics. Does the behavior change when powered back up?

The door interlock switch needs to be replaced. Its part number is ***** and its price is $30.49. You can purchase it at the expert's rating scale, found at the top of your screen, please click the star that best reflects your satisfaction with my answer. Thank you for choosing JustAnswer.

The door lock is not likely to make the screen go blank when the door is closed. Please post back what changes, if any, with the power cycle.

Page 12 in the attached tech sheet shows how to initiate the Help Mode and will allow you to retrieve any stored fault codes. Can you please post what you find?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I did everything, reset, power down, inspected fault codes ( no faults), checked the programing found no issues. After I reset it worked for 1 day and the same thing again. Top dryer works fine, bottom washer display goes blank if I press any of the bottom setting to start the load. It won't take money. To get the bottom display back I have to open door then the display comes back then shut door and press any lower selection and the lower display goes blank ( dryer side still fine). No sound or anything. I guess it is a controller issues or selection pad issue?

If it worked for one day, that would likely indicate a control failure, yes.
