The LCD panel on washers display the stages of a cleaning cycle. The panel also lights up like a Christmas tree when there is a problem. Sometimes it is a series of letters and numbers; sometimes there are flashing lights accompanied by cryptic beeping sounds.
You can consult your owner's manual for a clear explanation of the display. But it's laundry time and your daughter needs her special shirt for tomorrow.
Can you put your hands on your manual? Probably not. You can get a new manual or simply follow this chart to see what the codes mean and some items to check that may help you get the washer running again.
