Pre-soak for an hour in a sink or pail with Vanish. Then wash on 40'C. Make sure there is enough water in the washer that the clothes can move. Overloading can cause bad washes as there is virtually no agitation.

Yes, the thump is water hammer caused by the solenoid shutoff valve in the washer closing abruptly when the tub is full. Water hammer stresses the piping joints and could eventually cause a leak. First, make sure that the piping is supported properly to restrain any excessive movement. If the thumping persists, you'll need a plumber to install an accumulator or 'dead end' pipe in the line to help dampen the shock of suddenly stopping the flow of water.

Assuming there are no lights on your machine at all. Check to make sure its power cord is plugged in. Second check the breaker. It most likely has tripped. Turn it off and back on. Machine should power on.
If this would fail you will need to call for service.

That sounds like "a stuck key" error code. the rotary dial on the control board has failed.

Now for the bad news: you need to replace the control board.

Get the model number off the data plate, order it. I replaced mine in about 30 minutes.

NOW FOR THE REALLY BAD PART: you're probably looking at about $150-- mine WAS $163

What does the water pressure measure? Typically it's 50PSI +-10, I expect your pressure is significantly higher, or hose is bad.

Open top panel and cut wire at both sides of switch then nut them together without the switch connected at all. If it works then it is fixed but you will no longer have that safety in place or this should indicate you need a new switch and you have a working washer until you can put the new one in. (it tricks the machine into thinking door is closed all the time when switch is deleted from circuit.

Possibly pressure switch is bad or pressure tube is blocked.
