Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. Sorry to hear that you are having this trouble. Have you tried unplugging your appliance for 5 minutes to do a hard reset yet? If unplugging is not easy to do turning off the breaker for 5 minutes does the same thing.

hi there i have left it unplugged for about an hour. i do not know how to do a hard reset.

a hard reset is just leaving it unplugged. So that didn't seem to work. So from what you are describing it sounds like the control board has died and may need to be replaced sadly.

hi there, sorry missed your question about the door. I can not get to the point where the door will lock.I just plugged the machine back in and when i hit the power button it just beeps 3 times and no lights come on. so i can not get to the point where i can select a cycle to see if the door will lock.

ok yes that is certainly the control board then. So either one of the sites I just sent you would be good reliable companies to order parts through.
