Try to press the delay button several times until the delay cycles back to no time. If that doesn't work, flip the circuit breaker off for 60 seconds to see if the electronics will reset. As a last attempt to reset the control board, just start a cycle with whatever delay is shown. If you have a 4 hours delay just give the washer 6 or 7 hours to run and if it won't run and it won't cycle and and reset when done, you need to replace the control board inside the dor. Below is a link to the part if you need to order and replace it.
