Customer Question
Lights on control panel...

Lights on control panel blink. Can’t start cycles

Contractor's Assistant: Have you tried power cycling the appliance -- unplugging it and leaving it off for a few hours?

For about 10 minutes I did

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Maybe

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Probably need control panel reset would be my guess.
