ok, long story short, Wife called me in cause she couldnt get the washer to stay on
Hit the power button, the panel turned on and then turned off after about 1 second.
the Turn dial was on normal wash.

i did this a couple times and tested it on each of the dial settings and got the same results until I turned it to the "whites" setting where it stayed powered on.
I power cycled it a couple of times and tested on all the cycle settings and it seems the issue was now gone

I went ahead and did a full power cycle (disconnected power for 2 minutes) and turned it back on with no issues.
I troubleshoot issues for a living (Computer guy) and in my world these issues rarely just, go away.
I found this site, learned how to check fault codes and run a test on my machine and continued to do so....

There were Zero stored fault codes and it passed the diag test with no issues and has now completed washing a load of laundry...
Like, do i just let this go as an actual fluke or should I be on the look out for something else?

Thanks everyone

TL;DR - front panel was powering off directly after power on, issue cleared up "on its own", no fault codes, Do I ignore or push further?




I have attached the Tech Sheet I used for my machine

Hi,

In your tech. data sheet DO--->TEST #1, ACU Power Check, page 13.
Then do the USER INTERFACE TEST
