Does the unit have any light that are illuminated on the console? or is it all DEAD?

If it is dead if you open the door is there standing water in the bottom sump area?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
I can push the cycle and option buttons and they will light up, but my start button won't
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 12 days ago.

ok good info!

Do you feel that the door is closing properly?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
It clicks when I shut it and I've tried pushing harder and not so hard just in case it was the door.
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 12 days ago.

ok so the door switch does click when the door is closed that is why I asked about the door closing .

I recommend to replace the console assembly.
