I replaced the door latch assembly no problem ....... now when I try to run the washer it goes into a countdown mode( it shows the normal amount of time to run a load of laundry but it has a decimal point in the number displayed ) it also displays what cycle it is in i.e. wash, rinse & spin. The count down only take 15 to 30 seconds depending on the wash setting . not sure if it is in diagnostic mode or something.
I have tried unplugging the washer for an hour or so that did not clear the problem.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

Try putting the control into diagnostic mode to see if it will respond to that.

Did this problem appear immediately after you replaced the door latch or were you just including that for historical information?

Did you kill power to-- unplug-- the washer before you replaced the door latch assembly?

I'm thinking you fried the user interface board when you replaced the door latch assembly without first unplugging the washer.

The procedure I have for diagnostic mode is:

- unplug the washer
- within 30 seconds after plugging it in, press Signal - Delay -Signal - Delay

If it still won't go into diagnostic mode, then the user interface is suspect.

Due to the paucity of detailed tech info on the user interface board itself, about the only way to tell if the board is bad is on a functional basis. Yours appears to be bad. Fortunately, it's not a huge risk proposition; replace the user interface board and if it doesn't fix it, return it for a refund!
