All kinds of crazy issues.  The control lock locks by itself sometimes.  And it unlocks itself sometimes.  Some of the lights on the led are dim sometimes.  Sometimes none of the lights will come on at all.  The pause / cancel button works sometimes, sometimes it dont.  The thing beeps sometimes, for no reason.

 

Once you get it started, if you can, it runs fine other than the beeping.  You might be able to pause or cancel it, you might not. 

 

Control board or bad touch panel? 

 

Everything is intermittent.  You have no idea at what point or time something will or will not do something. 

 

I'm thinking most likely it's the control board.

Is it giving any error codes?

Are all the harness connections tight?

Sometimes you can use and eraser on the board contacts to help the harness get a better connection.

did you put anything wet on top of the washer , lately or in the past few weeks ?

 

I have seen water get down in the touch pad and it cannot get out ......ever !

 

this is just what happens , washer will turn it self on in the middle of the night

lights flash , beeps for no reason , mind of its own

 

had one, bought used , sat out in a rain storm , control went nuts , would not dry out until we removed it and disassembled it and let it dry out

Thanks for the advice.  I'll just have to see if the controls are wet, harness is tight, etc.
