I really had two problems: the door latch broke and coincidently (?) the touch pad controls were erratic. The big help was from another repair story that suggested touching the "extra-rinse" button four consecutive times to activate a demo mode. All lights lit up so I figured the CPU was OK. Ther

Very simple repair. First I removed all the screws on the inner door cover and then the screws holding the control panel to the door. I also had to remove the CPU to get it out of the way (two screws) to access the contact for the ribbon connector . When I pulled the contact for the ribbon conector away from the old panel, the small plastic sleeve holding it to its receptor came loose. I was worried I had ruined the receptor but it was a simple matter to insert the ribbon into the receptor and slide the sleeve over it to secure it. In a few minutes I put everything back together and Voila! Everything works like a charm. One estimate was $150 minimum to come out to the house, let alone the cost of the part. I saved myself a bundle, restored my male esteem and am anxious to have my next appliance break down so I can fix it.
