to run a diagnostics mode!

1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off, or all indicators lit but not flashing).

NOTE: There are 5 failure modes that can cause the washer to go out of service, indicated by all of the LEDs lit, but not flashing. When this occurs, the washer cannot be started until the condition that caused the failure is corrected and the fault code is cleared. Use the following steps to enter into Fault Code Display Mode, view the fault code, and clear logged fault codes.

2. Perform the following sequence of movement using the cycle selector knob. NOTE: AFTER RESET, sequence “a” through “e” must be completed within 6 seconds.

RESET - Place cycle selector knob pointer at 12 o’clock position and wait 3–4 seconds before proceeding.

a. Rotate cycle selector knob counterclockwise one click.

b. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click.

c. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click.

d. Rotate cycle selector knob counterclockwise one click.

e. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click.

 Successful activation of Diagnostic Test Modes will be indicated by all status LEDs (except for Lid Locked) flashing ON and OFF in half-second intervals. NOTE: LED names may vary between makes and models.

once the DONE light is illuminated .

Press the START button to enter Fault Code Display Mode. The status LEDs flash on and off.

And count the flashes and then it will have a pause and a second set of flashing numbers .

So count the flashes before the pause and after the pause.

and let me know what you get.
