I've just recently replaced a drain pump and door gasket on this unit.  Unit ran fine prior to my repairs.  After the new parts were installed, I found that when I turn the unit on, the display says to "Choose a Cycle".  Unfortunately, all the cycle lights are on and I'm unable to choose a cycle.  If I just press the start button (while all the cycle lights are on), it defaults to normal wash.  What's the deal with this?  Iv'e tried reseting this unit (unplug, rotate drum 360, leave unplugged for 2 min), but no success

Makes sense.  I'll try to fiddle with the buttons a bit.  I'll post what I find.  Thanks.

It sounds as if it does not respond to the dial being turned?

UPDATE:  Found a wire broken under the factory electrical tape.  This was a black wire going to the largest connector coming from the UI.  Spliced and reconnected the wires and all is good.  Kind of odd how it broke under the tape.  It didn't give any fault codes either.  In case anyone gets these sort of symptoms, thoroughly check the wiring!!
