Some error code there? This may sound strange but give it a try. Unplug the electric. Leave
unplugged 2 or 3 minutes, then plug it back in. This allows the
controls to reset. It worked alot cases.
Inicially I could think in some drain problem, check hose for any clogged or obstruction there, try to jump voltage to the pumo to confirm if this device is working. If this dont solve it, you will need to check timer; in this link could finr some tip test: applianceaid.com/direct.html#burnt_timer
Visit this site to identify some parts replacement that you could need: partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5152465&diagram
If you are not sure about how do it this job, or your machine is even under warranty, call the technician service.
Hope this helps.
