Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with your issues today. Please give me a minute to review your question.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

If you are getting flashing lights on the control panel and can't start a cycle or anything then you are going to be looking at an issue with the touchpad of the unit. I have had varied success with a loose connection at the control board of the unit but it doesn't hurt to give it a try to start. What you will want to do is kill power to the unit at the breaker. Then around the inside of the door you will see screws, Torx 20 if memory serves, take those out and the control panel should sort of drop down. The cable from the touchpad to the control board is a thin ribbon cable, you will want to unplug that from the control and reseat it ensuring that it is connected tight, while you have it apart you can also inspect the cable to see if there appears to be anything damaged, sometimes you will see a little burnt area in the ribbon. Once this is done put it back together and turn the breaker back on and see if you are still getting the same thing.

If you went through that and are still getting the blinking lights on that panel then you would at that point need to replace the touch pad on the machine to restore it to working order, and if that is the case I can get you the part number and stuff for the replacement part.

Well that seemed to have worked. the lights went back to normal and it is running a cycle now. Did not get to look at the ribbon though.

Oh nice, maybe it was just a loose connection in there then, glad to hear that seems to be making it working.
