Stick a soft wooden stick in there and swirl it a bit. The other option is to add vinigar and do a short wash for the sensor inside cleans up. Last option would be to remove larger cover and check for obstructions and connections

Hello. From what you describe, the detergent dispenser has become defective and needs to be replaced. Normally, if run daily, you should get a week's worth of washings before needing to fill the compartment. Make sure, if there is a setting dial(with an arrow) inside the rinse aid compartment, that the arrow should be at 2 1/2 to 3, give or take a little. You don't want too much rinse aid in the water as it can cause a severe foaming of the water which can trigger a drain error--the unit thinks its draining water when, in fact, its sensing foam and stays on too long. The main board senses this and triggers a shutdown for safety. Washing machines can experience this same phenomenon from too much detergent--its called a SUD error, for too much suds in the water.

Hello. The control panel most likely wasn't the problem...the main control board probably was blown out causing the user interface to remain off. What was the unit doing or not doing that made you replace the control panel?
BIG TIP--if you had a power interruption (such as lights dimming in the house--called a "brownout") or a full scale outage where the clocks reset, the main board very well could have been damaged by the current surge when the power came back on. *NORMALLY**, if the appliance wasn't damaged immediately, 4-6 weeks after the event, strange things will start happening or not happening with appliances because chips on the the board were damaged and start to fail. I tell all my customers to check into WHOLE HOUSE SURGE PROTECTORS--you can buy them at Lowe's or Home Depot and, your power company might install them on your house for a little extra on the bill each month--money well spent!

Does it cycle i.e. fill, wash, rinse, and drain?

If yes, then heater relay likely has failed (closed).

What model number?
