OK I did the test and I held down the buttons like it said, By the way I have the "good model" according to the manual- meaning I don't have a display. The lights flashed once then the pause then they flashed once again. It said that the machine would continue to flash the lights of the test as long as I held the buttons but it didn't. The lights flashed one time then pause then again then it went back to ready to start mode. So to sum up, the 5 light cluster and the start light flashed once when I held down the buttons, a couple of seconds later they all flashed once then it went to regular lights. The start light starts blinking but I counted to 57 before I quit because it is still blinking. I dont know what to do next. I haven't messed the washer in a few days before I tested it so is that the real error code or do I have to try using the machine normally to get a current error reading?
