Good thought,

I just tried to place the timer in the Spin position and when I hit start; the unit drains, the the door locks, then you can hear a hum from it that may or may not be the motor turning (but not very fast), after this happens for a little while it shuts off again, with the door stuck locked.

Since it is doing this when it is not trying to fill, I am doubting my thoughts about it being a pressure problem.

Even though the connector removal test I tried earlier had a good result, I am starting to suspect the motor control again.

Thoughts?

have you verified a return signal at the board from the spin enable and out of balance switches yet? i do a dc voltage test from the gray wire at the relay to the return wires at the board. you will have to look at the schematic but i believe one is orange and one is yellow.....its been a while.

i just checked, the spin enable is P3-7 yellow (36) wire. the out of balance return signal is P2-4 orange (40). to do this test you will set your meter to read dc volts and set one lead on the gray wire at the relay on the board then the other lead on the correct wire. you will be doing 2 tests, one for each wire. you need to verify 24 volts at each wire when the machine shuts off prematurely. if you have 24 volts at each wire then my money is on the motor/motor control.

I think I have it figured out.

I came across a new Motor Control Board for cheap so I picked it up and installed it and everything seems to be good now. I am going to keep an eye on things, but it looks like the motor control board was the culprit.

Thanks for all your help guys!

If I run into any other issues I know where to go.

Thanks!
