    It sounds like it is the lock sensors. get your owners manual and look for the troubleshooting guide there should be a combination of buttons you can press to get a diagnostic code to come up on the panel then look up the code. If it comes up with Op or OD that means the lid must be opened or lid must be closed either way the lock sensors are not responding and that would be the problem. Hope this helped

Unplugging to reset only works when the washer has power and on stand by. Start by checking the fuse on the noise filter, that is were the power cord connects to. If good than your main board is bad.

It's probably just the the clutch ignition wiring clip located directly underneath the clutch lever. It seems to come unplugged fairly easily. I had the exact same problem and this was the quick fix.

Try unplugging it from the wall for a minute, then see if it works. If not, it's probably a power supply problem inside the unit.
