Question about Washing Machines
I have a diplomat Washing machine APM 8542. I was washing and the breaker at the electrical box when down. I activated it but the wash machine just light the panel control but it don't show any message. when I try to switch on or switch off it shows the options but disappear very quickly. I think that could be the minisel card. (546060300 -03).

Sounds like user interface board. Try unplugging the machine, press power button for 3 seconds, plug machine back in and try again. If this does help, it will probably be a temporary fix. The user interface board is the one mounted directly to the console.

Carefully remove control console, then control board. Take note of which connector came from which terminal! Balance sensor is located under control board. Remove with care. Check that little button (size of pen top or pencil lead) is moving in & out freely. It is spring loaded. If it sticks, replace it. Hope this helps.

Well I found the problem - fuse had blown.
There is a circuit diagram on the back of the washer that allowed me to locate the fuse. Take off the rear top plastic panel (behind the folding lid) by removing the two screws on the back. Inside close to the power cord you will find a fuse holder and an in-line ceramic fuse, 125V 12A. I checked mine for continuity and it had blown (as to why, I don't know yet - maybe the motor drew too much current with a large wash load?) - anyways, I replaced the fuse and everything works now!
