You need to check the door switch on the unit, you will have to take apart the door to check this. If the switch does not work the unit will not Start but all other functions will light up fine. Link to part below

well, if you looked up the model number like I did, then you saw there is a recall and fixing the door mechanism may not have fixed my issue and I could have had a fire after all just like the recall is all about.....shame on you and your organization for not being upfront with me on a recall
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 8 months ago

The recall is not for the issue you have, the unit is 12 years old so please the shame on me business I will opt out of this good luck!
