Machine is an Indesit wixl143 and must be 9 years old, (although its only been used for about 3 years)
Hi thank you for that information.Try something for me, please unplug the machine for 1 full hour.Then try it again, this is a main control board issue but its always possible that the board simply experienced a power glitch. If that is the case, then this will solve the problem. But if not then you will need a new main board. Its easy to replace and there is no soldering required just plug in connectors ;-)But dont try that without my advise and I will let you know the best place to order that part if you need it.Also I have other tips to make sure this repair goes smoothly.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank youSincerelyTech Michael

Ok I'll give it an hour.
Approximately how much would a main control board be - the machine is quite old and might simply be best to replace it if the power reset doesn't work
Hi I will agree with you on that, the board for this one is about $ 150 US.
