Re: getting to the control panel
The outer user interface / touchpad stays in place. it can be removed only after removing the electronic machine relay board. The relay board is accessed from the inside of the door. You need to separate the inner door panel from the outer door panel. After removing the screws from around the inside of the door, the inner panel should lift up and away from the outer panel. The plastic cover should just clip on. you may need to use a flat screwdriver to release one or more of the clips. After that you'll be able to see any screws or clips holding the relay board in place.

I had a problem where the water would fill and do everything except when it came to spin it would not work. I took the back cover off and checked gave some wires a shake and found that a spark came from the motor control board. Took the board out and inspected and found that a solder joint on a thick metal jumper was broken (eroded). Reflowed the solder joint with a soldering iron and added some more solder for added strength. Plugged the board back in and I was up and running. Always do a visual check before doing any repairs, it may save you a lot of money with a quick fix like this. This may look complicated for some but it's worth trying. A repair tech told me either its the motor control board($150) or the motor($300). I would have spent over $500 plus his labor....
You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.
I had same issue. The control panel had been set to Sabbath mode. Hold down the "DOOR ALARM" button for 3 seconds. Then lights will turn on on both display windows. Scroll using the + and/or - sign on the left side display until "SAB" is shown. Then scroll using the + or - sign on the right side display until OFF is shown. Finally, hold the "DOOR ALARM" button down again for 3 seconds. All should be good to go!
The booster heat control circuit is controlled by the relay board. Visually check for loose or burnt relay contacts...
You will see the booster LED light when it calls for heat. Some newer machines have a second high limit on the right hand side of the booster tank.
It may be your control board is configured for low temp with no booster. When you power up, the display should say LX30H. If not
Pull open the upper drawer, place a magnet over the door interlock switch.
CAUTION, 220 volt power is present. be carefull what you touch.
on control board, short J5-1 and J5-2, then power up. You are in factory setup. press select on the control board to see each option on the front panel., press up arrow on control board to step up through options for each step. when done, press the off button on front panel. remove short and start up normally. With the magnet in place, AND THE DOOR CLOSED, run the machine and observe the relay board status lights.
If you want to adjust the temp set points, with the machine off, press and hold the hidden key behind the front panel logo, and press select on the control board.. Or on power up, hold the wask key..Same to adjust options as above. Press off to exit.
Catriver(fixya) has a solution:
Remove the top, by removing the 3 screws in the rear. The top will slide off toward the back. Next remove the control panel. Remove the 2 screws on each end on top. Remove the detergent drawer. Remove the torq screws behind the detergent drawer. The control panel will now snap off, pulling from the top and lifting up. Once freed, remove the control panel ribbon cable from the side of the main board. Now remove the screws holding the door switch mechanism in place. Remove the spring that holds the outer part of the boot from the front panel. Now remove the 4 quarter inch screws that hold the front panel and door on the front. Now you can install the new boot with ease. I know it sounds like a lot, but it is not that bad. Just reverse the process when the boot is on the tub. Make sure to have the mark on the boot ^ lined up with the mark on the tub on top.
