Do you also hear a click from the control along with that beep?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
No, just a beep.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

Does the display count down or stay at set point?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
stays on the time that we set, after hitting start it just beeps and does nothing.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

Open the door and at the top of the opening is the door switch plunger. It is covered with gray rubber. If you push that plunger in and out, does it click heavily and toggle the light on and off?

My wife just tried to see if there is a count down, there is. The time does count down.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

Okay, so that is a different issue. Can you remove the panel that is below the door? There are screws along the bottom edge.

The button goes in smoothly. No clicking. I have already taken the lower panel off, but I did not check the fuse.
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

Is the belt intact around the drum or hanging loose?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

If the door switch is not clicking, it likely has issues. Is the beep you hear three fast beeps or one beep?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Belt is good;
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Only 1 beep
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

Okay, so it is likely an open fuse. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!

Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 8 months ago

Do you have access to a meter for testing? There is a chance the control may have a faulty relay, too.
