You need to get the last stored error out of the machine. Follow these directions carefully.

1. Make sure the unit is off no lights on anything.

2. Rotate the dial quickly counterclockwise a few full turns stopping at 12 oclock

3. Turn the Dial and GO SLOWLY and STEADY

3 clicks forward(Clockwise)

1 clicks back (Counterclockwise)

1 click forward.(Clockwise)

All lights should light up if done correctly.If not start it over and remember go SLOW and STEADY between clicks count 1 Mississippi between clicks.

Once they do all light then you want to rotate the dial forward(clockwise) until DONE only is lit. Once that is lit, press Start then rotate the dial 1 click forward and tell me what is flashing and the pattern. I need to know the exact lights that are on in order from LEFT to right.....you can post them like this......X00XXX then flashes 000XX for the pattern. THERE ARE TWO PATTERNS I NEED BOTH.

Hello, I am sorry nobody has gotten back to you yet. Are you still needing help with this?

If it will eventually spin and finish the cycle after resetting the selector, the issue is likely with the controller. Is this what you are finding?

The only way it will eventually spin is if you switch it to spin. It want switch from sensing. Ever
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 7 months ago

So from that we know that the mode shifter is working and all of the mechanical parts. That only leaves the control. Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
