I just replaced the boot on this washer and did not disconnect the power when doing so though I did not have to tamper with any electrical parts at this point. When I went to plug this back in I received no response from the control panel. I then checked the door latch and in the process ended up breaking the spring mechanism so I replaced the latch but still no response on the control panel. I noticed that there was no clicking in the CCU when I plug the unit into the socket so I tried replacing the CCU. When I first plugged the unit back in, I heard a click and the "add garment" light was lit and the "lock" light was blinking then the unit started to perform some kind of a cycle. The control panel would not respond to any action. I let the brief 30 second cycle run and the lights remained as stated. I then opened the door and then closed it and the lights went out. Now, I have no response on the control panel and no clicking when I plug the unit in. I was told previously to check the wiring on the door latch but there is only one way in which this can be wired so now I am not sure what to check. Any guidance you can offer is greatly appreciated.

Another poster had found a bad wire on the grey cable the runs from the CCU to the control panel from laying on the drum.

Check the gray wire harness that runs from the CCU to the control panel. It's not uncommon to find one of the wires in there broken. Could be along the length of it or at either end where it connects. Use your meter to check continuity of each wire in that harness.

Thanks for the reply Samurai. I have checked the continuity along each wire in this harness as well as those between the door latch and the CCU and there were no bad connections. Any further thoughts?
