It sounds that the start signal does not comes from its main digital board to its main power regulator board. There is nothing a user can do with this fault. It will be best to contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details, Pull up older posts.

Can't select wash cycles

Is the control board displaying any fault codes?

Try disconnecting the power cord to the washer from the wall outlet for 5 maybe 10 minutes...give the control board enough time to power down and hopefully the control board could self-correct itself by resetting. No different than re-booting a computer.

If you still run into the same problem, and if so equipped, try holding down the "end of cycle" signal button for 10 seconds and see if that resets it.

Red bulb for refrigeration comes on. When cycling manually, water enters the area where is should be made. Nothing is cold. Fan blades turn free by hand, but do not run during the manual cycle. Help...

Has the CM3 controller been changed out? If so and it is the Universal service controller look on back to make sure the model- program selection switch on the side has been set to correct number.if so then unplug unit then plug back in push freeze tab let run and check all the refrigeration components. we know it is not a water problem or the water light would be lite up. If when you push freeze tab and nothing comes on and the water sump tray is full of water then replace Service controller.

Check the outlet first. If the outlet is ok, then you have a control board issue. Replace the control board. Good luck.

Multiple lights are lite when running a cycle....can't run certain cycles (bulky items, whites etc) spin light continuously blinks. have tried unplugging and restarting with no results

I feel you may have a Control Board issue. I would see if the Control Board will let you into Service Mode. If it does I would read the Diag code blocks 1 thru 40. The block only show up when an error event has been logged.

Bottom line I see no easy way out without least swapping out the Control Board for a start point.

You will need the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual to get started. See page 17 of the SM TO READ THE Diag codes

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Here is a quick start if the Control Board will let you into Service Mode;
To enter Service Mode press and hold simultaneously the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys until the machine beeps and the LED display reads 00.

From the Service Manual;

Display Diagnostic Codes
The diagnostic code display can be toggled on and off from Service Mode by pressing the Wrinkle Control key. The display will show a “d”. The diagnostic codes can be viewed by using the Set Delay Time arrow keys. The Set Delay Time down arrow key will cycle down the list one code at time each time it is pushed. The Set Delay Time up arrow key will cycle up the list one code each time it is pushed. The first time the Set Delay Time down arrow key is pushed, the newest code will be displayed. A code generated during or after the current cycle will be displayed with the rightmost dot “.” turned ON. Access Other Features While a diagnostic code is displayed, if the Normal

If you decide to give it a try jot down the code blocks and toss them back to us for review.

It takes a long time for my whirpool cabrio washer to start...

not likely. first thing is to unplug the unit for a few minutes. then plug it back in and try to run any cycle again.
if the buttons are hard to push, then you may have a "user interface" needing replaced. if it won start on any cycle, then it might be a control board.
i would check to see how old this is as it might be under warranty.
if its not covered, then call whirlpool and ask if they can help you with the cost of the repairs.
you would be surprised to find out that they do give concessions on alot of these to keep people happy.

Carrier Weathermaker SXI Model 58SX8100LG Code 12

Code 12 I believe is power up after power off and a call for heat from the the thermostat. If you have a weak door switch that may be vibrating and going on and off it would cause this as would any thing that causes the power to drop low or out then reapply its self. try holding the door switch in while watching the board and after 2 or 3 minutes the furnace should go on to lite and the blower cycle off. If it stays in this mode try turning the thermostat off (heat - OFF -cool) and then push in the door switch nothing should happen except the lite on the board come on and stay on. If it does this than have someone turn the thermostat to heat and see if it starts or put the door on and set the heat and see if *** goes through the normal cycle of heating. If however it goes right back into the blower mode and shows the 12 code your problem is still with you. So next remove the wire on the "W" terminal on the board. Retry power to the door switch and now nothing should be on except the red lite. If it tries to start the 12 code and blower up again Im pretty sure you have a bad ignition/blower control board.

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start

restart curcuit board sequence

push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal

most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck

It certainly does sound like the main control, this is the most common part (electronically speaking) also there is the display board(s) directly behind the control panel. This PC relays user inputs to CCU (located on top of washer ---middle rear). I havent replaced a faulty display board yet out of the 50+ ive serviced. Doesnt mean its not bad. If you have any questions feel free....
