OK...meaning your controls all light up nice and pretty but when you push the start button it only beeps?


First, do no harm.

Well-known problem.  The beeping is the giveaway.  Usually a bad MCU.  Do this test:

If the washer ACTS like it wants to start (but it obviously can't because the MCU is disconnected), then the MCU is loading down the CCU.  Replace the MCU:  http://www.repaircli...0384846/2024625
