    actually found part at Appliance zone for $129. Found the START switch was not working. Tacked some wires to the pad connector and command start by shorting together and the machine is working. This will work until the panel arrives. Thanks for the help.

When selecting the allowable options....will the door lock?

If door locks you will need to check for power at the machine control board.

here is the link to your wiring diagram click on the link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/partsdirect/showSubComp.pd?imageUrl=http%3a%2f%2fc.searspartsdirect.com%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2fM0604325-00009.png

If you would like to tackle this job...please post and we can get started. You will need to be able to read a wiring schematic and know how to use a volt meter. I will be able to walk you through the entire process. We will be checking for power throughout the entire control board to see why it is not responding to your commands. This is not a a DIYer job. I suspect the door is not locking or the control board is bad. We will need to determine which one. If the door is not locking you will be able to perform the change out of the latching mechanism.

Please post the answer to the door lock question.....and if it is locking.....if you would like to proceed to the input checks on the control board (CCU)

How can i unlock my keyboard


Recognize that you have a locked keyboard.

If your PC computer is not responding to keystrokes or is responding very slowly, you could have a locked keyboard.


Use your mouse to move the pointer over the "Start" button.

Use the left-click button to bring up the "Start" pop-up menu.


Position the pointer over "Settings" and use the left-click button to select. T

hen select "Control Panel." On some versions of PC operating systems, you can select "Control Panel" directly from the "Start" menu.


Select "Accessibility Options" to bring up another menu, then select "Keyboard."

You'll see three options that have check boxes.


Make sure each check box does not have a check mark in it.

The three options are "StickeyKeys," "FilterKeys" and "ToggleKeys."

Note that these options can become checked if the keyboard operator has repeatedly depressed the "Shift" key in rapid succession--or if the "Shift" key is held down for longer than eight seconds.


If the keyboard is still not responding, the problem could be that the computer has lost communication with the keyboard.

Turn off the computer.


Disconnect the power supply.

Remove and then reconnect the keyboard cable, then reconnect the power supply.


Turn the computer on.

This will reboot the computer, allowing it to recognize the keyboard.


hope this helps

Howdo i enter diagnostic mode 1994 deville


TROUBLE CODE DISPLAY:
After entering On-Board Diagnostics, a segment check is automatically performed and then any trouble code stored in computer memory will be displayed. Codes may be stored for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM), Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC), Air Conditioning Programmer (ACP), Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR), Traction Control System (TCS) or Road Sensing Suspension (RSS) systems.
Each trouble code consists of the system abbreviation: (E: Engine, PCM), (I: IPC), (A: ACP), (R: SIR), (T: TCS), (S: RSS), a three digit code identifier, and the letter C or H. All codes for each system are displayed together, in the order of their three digit number (lowest first). The final digit of the code, a "C" or "H" is used to indicate whether the code is Current or History. A "C" means the fault was still present the last time the diagnostic test was run, while "H" means the failure was not present the last time the code was tested for.
If no codes are present for a system, a "NO X CODE" message (with "X" being the system i.e. E, I, A, R, T or S) will be displayed. If the communication line to a component is not operating, a "NO X DATA" message will be displayed, indicating that the IPC could not communicate with that system.
SELECTING THE SYSTEM:
After trouble codes have been displayed, a specific vehicle system PCM, IPC, ACP, SIR, TCS, RSS may be selected for testing.
The first available system will be automatically displayed (i.e. PCM?). While selecting the system to test, any of the following actions may be taken:
  1. Depressing the "HI" button on the CCC will select the displayed system for testing.
  2. Depressing the "LO" button on the CCC will display the next available system selection. This allows the display to be stepped through all system choices. This list of systems can be repeated following the end of the system list.
  3. Depressing the "OFF" button the CCC will stop the system selection process and return the display to the beginning of the trouble code sequence.
SELECTING THE TEST TYPE:
Having selected a system, the first available test type will be displayed (i.e. PCM DATA?, PCM CLEAR CODES?). While selecting a specific test type, any of the following actions may be taken:
  1. Depressing the "HI" button on the CCC will select the displayed test type. At this point the first of several specific tests will appear.
  2. Depressing the "LO" button on the CCC will display the next available test type for the selected system. This allows the display to be stepped through all available test type choices. This list of test types can be repeated following the display of the last test type.
  3. Depressing the "OFF" button on the CCC will stop the test type selection process and return the display to the next available system selection.
CLEAR CODES
Selection of "CLEAR CODES?" test will result in the message "CODES CLEARED" being displayed along with the selected systems name. This message will appear for 3 seconds and then return to the next available test type.
EXITING DIAGNOSTIC MODE:
To get out of the diagnostic mode anytime during the test, depress the "AUTO" or "DEFOG" button, or turn the ignition switch "OFF." Trouble codes are not erased if this is done prior to selecting "CODES CLEARED."
ECC Trouble Code Descriptions:
  • DTC A010 - Outside Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A011 - High Side Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A012 - Low Side Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A013 - In-Car Temperature Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A015 - Sunload Sensor Circuit
  • DTC A037 - Loss of IPC Data
  • DTC A040 - Air Mix Valve (Door) Circuit Problem
  • DTC A047 - Low Refrigerant Charge
  • DTC A048 - Low Refrigerant Pressure
  • DTC A050 - HVAC - Coolant Temperature Too High

EVIC - PERFORM SERVICE MESSAGE


To reset the perform service message , is as follows , turn ignition switch to the ON position , depress and release MENU push button until SERVICE INTV . = is displayed , press and release STEP button to step through available options. the last selected distance option displayed becomes the service interval at which the PERFORM SERVICE message will be displayed . if a new distance interval is selected , RESET SERVICE DISTANCE ? with a yes or no option. when yes is selected the accumulated distance since the last previous PERFORM SERVICE message will be set to zero because the service interval has been changed . when NO is selected , the distance until the next PERFORM SERVICE message is reduced by the accumulated distance since the last previous message . EVIC exits programming mode and returns to its normal operation mode when the C/T button is depressed or when the end of the programmable feature menu list is reached , whichever comes first .

The 3 buttons


button selection : To select an option press the button and you will see a light come on above the button. Press again to cancel and the light will go out. You cannot alter the options once the machine is running. Note : remember to cancel buttons after use!

As you look at the machine
Left hand button... Rinse Hold.. use this option to Help reduce creasing of delicate or synthetic fabrics by holding clothes in the final rinse water. The rinse hold light will flash to indicate that the programme is holding final rinse water. Complete the final spin by pressing the Rinse Hold button when light is flashing.
This is not available with Wool or Spin only programmes.

Middle Button.... Energy Save... use this option to save money and time on lightly soiled loads. This is not available with the Quick Wash, Rinse and Spin, or Spin Only programmes.

Right Hand Button .... Super Rinse... use this option for Large Wash loads and items for young children or people with sensitive skin. This option increases the water level for the first two rinses. This is not available with Cold Wash, Rinse and Spin or Spin Only programmes.

Copied from my Hotpoint FEW12 user instruction sheet.
Hope it helps.

Hit the input button again to select the next input. If you wait to long to depress the input button it will not work and you have to begin again. This unit will only hightlight inputs have a component hooked to that input.

LOC code flashing on washing machine


Pressing the options and select buttons simultaneously for 5-10 seconds worked. For me it happened this way: on the first attempt, with the indicator lights already "timed-out" and off, pressing and holding the options and select buttons simultaneously for 5-10 seconds caused the lights to come back on and flash the "LOC" code again. But holding the options and select buttons together for 5-10 seconds a second time caused the indicator lights to stop flashing, and allowed me to start the cycle.
