Question GE washer won't turn on (GHWN4250D1WW)

So, my wife stopped a spinning load by lifting the lid and when she lowered it and pushed the Start button, nothing. The manual suggests unplugging it for five minutes to reset the electronics if it won't start. I did this, picked a setting (can't remember which) and pressed the button. Viola! It began to fill the tub, so I closed the lid. She then again lifted the lid, which stopped the water, added some clothing, lowered the lid, set what she wanted it to do, and....nothing again. This time the "reset" failed to work on any setting, so we have our tried and true handyman coming by on Monday to troubleshoot it. In the meantime, any suggestions on what else to try? The circuit is good, and the lights come on in the panel, but no start. TIA for any help you can lend.
