all of them are rapidly flashing almost flickering
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 6 months ago

Yes that is a bad display board assembly, here is a link to the part you need to fix that issue. CLICK HERE you may want to see if Whirlpool will do anything for you on it since the part is so expensive.

I hope that I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here for payment and will receive nothing unless a rating is given. Please remember to use the RATING LINK ON YOUR PAGE by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today. If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
