Select and hold CONTROL LOCK for 3 seconds until the Control Lock status light turns off. Will it then allow a program to start?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it just lights up
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

Okay, are you getting the F28 now or right before this happened?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I got The F21 first the the F28, I cleaned the drain pump and tried to start it nothing
Expert:  Kelly replied 1 year ago.

The F28 error code indicates a communication error between the control boards. Often times this is caused by a connection issue rather than a part failure. There are three screws on the rear of the top panel that secure the top on. Once removed, the top will slide back and come off to be set aside. In the RF corner near the front control panel is the main machine control. WITH THE MACHINE UNPLUGGED, remove each connector, one at a time, and replace into the control. This will rectify any connection issue if there is one. Once each connector has been reset into position, remove the back panel from the machine to access the motor control board. Do the same for each motor connector. Plug the machine back in and see if the code returns. Let me know if it does and we can move forward.
