Turned machine off for 30 mins. No error messages when I turned it back on. Fault same as before - lock light flashing and cycle wont start.

Thank you for that information. on this one unfortunately the main control board has failed.

Its easy to replace that board and there is no soldering required;-)

Its just some plug in connectors to the main control board.

I would take a few pics of their location before removing any of the wires so you knwo exactly where they go back on to the board.

The best place to order that board is:

I would call them to order this part so you can be sure they send you the correct one.

Tell them also you want a new board that has a preprogrammed PROM IC.
