We have a working washing machine again! 😀
This is the new panel he put in. All of this is behind the touch screen in front. At the far end is the power button, then where the knob pops on, the start/pause button, and then the controls for temperature, spin and soil. There is no load size control; the machine senses that itself and adjusts the amount of water accordingly, but at the far right of the panel, you can do things like add a soak time, and extra rinse, or even tell it to add extra water. All of these can change the time, which is where the digital display comes in.
Of course, he tested everything before he started, and it was exactly the same as before. After switching out the panel, but before putting it all together, we tested it.
Knob for wash cycles? Yes.
Temperature? No. Spin? No. Soil? No!
But, of the buttons on the far right did work.
So he opened it up again, tested them without the front panel, and everything was working.
He put it back, and it was working.
Best guess, there just wasn’t enough contact between the touch screen and the switches, the first time he put it on.
Of course, we kept testing it over and over, as he put everything back in place!
It’s all working fine now.
Hopefully, it will stay working!
I have a sudden urge to do laundry…
I’m sure if I ignore it, it’ll go away, though. 😉
