You may have a stuck button as this will cause flashing of lights, try pushing button and see if it returns if not strike lightly above it with plastic spoon etc.

If this does not work u can buy the control panel from Sears for 190.00 but first go to searspartsdirect.com then type your model no. In required space click on shop parts on appropriate model, then go to troubleshooting then to won't start, then go down to how to replace control panel.

According to instructions you will only need torx screwdriver and less than 30 minutes to replace.

Are you pushing the button repeatedly or pushing it once and and holding it on for 4-5 seconds? Just push and hold it on for a few seconds till the lock light goes off.

You might be refering to the locked light. Refer answer to your other post on the same topic.

I was able to reset it using this procedure:

1. Crack the dook open

2. Within 3 seconds, press these buttons in this squence: Hi Temp Wash, Heated dry, Hi Temp Wash, Heated Dry

3. Close door

4. Press Cancel

That should clear the Blinking LED. It appears this is a common problem. The worst thing is they charge to come out for this.

un plug it from the power, for your safety. flip it on its back and look at the hanging part. Has tube become disconnected from it?
