OK, I had intermittent pausing on this machine and decided to run the diagnostic mode.

I ensured the power button was off and then unplugged the machine for 30s.
I then pressed the signal-delay-signal-delay sequence within 30s of applying power and the machine made 2 short beeps and the display remained blank.

I pressed the power button and the display showed the cycle time in decimals of minutes.

The machine is empty, filter clean and I have tried to reset it by allowing it to remain unplugged for 30 minutes (or more).

Any thoughts? It was at least working before I started. Now when I attempt to run a cycle, it counts down with a short delay and beeps twice before resetting itself to display a cycle time e.g. rinse and spin - 1.8.

Thank you!

I had one like this. It was caused by a shorted lid switch. The computer evidently would check to see that the lid switch was open at some point after the wash. If it didn't get an opening in the lid switch within 3 washes the machine would shut down. However unplugging it would allow it to reset and it would work again for another 3 washes. Symptoms are a little different from yours but it's worth checking anyway.

Could also try taking it in and out of test mode:

Thanks Samaurai Man,

I tried to do this several times but it will not go into the test mode. it just beeps twice. (with the door open or closed). The thing is, I was never sure whether to try to enter the test mode with the power switch turned on or off. With it on, the display is never blank - it always showed the time to go for the cycle selected. Now, after trying to get the machine into the test mode, it shows the time in decimals of minutes.

An 'unplug' reset has no effect at all.

Your symptoms are interesting - there's clearly a lot more unpublished information on these computers - any clues as to where to find it?

Thanks!

If the board won't go into diagnostic mode, well, that's a bad board, prima facia as them lawyers might say. Come git you one==> http://www.repaircli...mber=WBVH6240FW
