The wash cycle buttons to start the washer sometime activate the washer (turn it on) and sometimes pushing the cycle buttons does not turn the machine on. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Paul. If the buttons are sticking on your control panel, check for a loose connection. If the connections are good, you will need to replace the control panel 8563810. Hope this helps.

Answer Gene, If you have 120 VAV across the black wire pin 4, and white wires pin 2 on the P16 connector on the main control board, then Yes you'd have a faulty control board.
Can I replace a 8542693 control board with a 661640 control board. They appear to be the same board.
Answer Shane, Yes, both control boards 8542693 and 661640 have been "substituted" to the same replacement control board 8571359 / 8571359. Unfortunately AppliancePartsPros.com is out of stock, at this time. You may want to contact the APP Customer Service Team
