Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

Try to unplug the washer for 5 minutes to see if the electronics will reset, if the unit isn't coming on and you're sure you have power to the washer, something is wrong with one of the control boards. You'll need to unscrew the back of the top panel of the washer and then the top panel will pull straight back, up, and off. In the front right corner attached to the right side wall you'll see a control board. That is your CCU. Unplug the MI3 connection at the board and then plug the washer back in and see if it turns on. If so, then your motor control board failed and needs to be replaced. If it still won't turn on, your front interface board has failed and would need to be replaced.

Hello again. I'm just following up because I haven't heard back from you and I see this question is still open and unrated. Is there anything else I can help you with?
