Shame to say it but yes..

You board behind the control pannel is blown. this is caused by either a faulty door swtich or the motor.. Your model number tells me its most likely the door switch.. The control board will need replacing and the door swtich.

Getting to the board is easy only three screws near the soap draw. make sure you write which wires go where and to getto the door lock undue the door rubber if you needany further advice let me know
i have worked on more the 300 of these machines

Why won't my washer start a cycle? Start button LED just flashes. All other lights are steady. Door lock sounds like it engaged, but nothing happens.


There should be a way to enter the washing machine into service mode to view an error code. Check your user manual and then you should have your answer!

IF you machine is a wma39 not a wmm39a then what has happed is that you control board is blown basically.
TO check this remove the soap draw and you will c three screws remove them... TO make removing the panel easier i would suggest removing the top as well as the front panel is wedged into it.. Then unclip the board from the panel and you will c where the big wiring plug is attached that the tracks on the board are blown.. There is no point replacing the board untill you can work out what has caused it to blow because it will blow again.. Its usually the motor or the doorlock which blows the board.. Trust me i been dealing with this type of machine for years...
