My washer stopped working mid-cycle. My wife took the clothes out and the tub was half full of water. When I held the start button down, the water drained out, but nothing else happened.

After some research, I figured it might be the infamous wax motor problem. I looked at the control board and the resistors all looked good, so I just replaced the wax motor. When I pressed the start button after installing it, I got more noise than before, so I stopped it and loaded clothes to test. Well, that didn't work. Nothing happened. I will sometimes get a flicker of the power light, but the door locked light doesn't come on at all. I've tried starting it at various points in a cycle, and I do get noises (one sounds like a timer, and another sounds like it's filling with water, even though it isn't). But it won't work. And pressing and releasing the start button does nothing.

I still have a feeling it has something to do with the door lock. After putting in the new wax motor, I pressed the switch on the door lock spin enable switch, and I got more noises after that when I held the start button down. But not enough noises to actually work...

What should I be looking for next?

And this may be relevant, but I doubt it. There's a green plastic, thin wire-like thingy attached to the door light lock switch. It's not an electrical wire or a tube, just a solid plastic strip. It's about 8-10" long, and one end is hanging free. It looks like the free end might have been attached to the door lock light switch too, to form a loop, but I can't see what it would have looped around. And the instructions for the new wax motor show it going through a screw hole, so that can't be right. Any idea where that goes or what it does?

Going to have to do some power checks with a meter, there a a few good posts on here discussing this or similar issues. I can't link you to them at the moment.

The green plastic wire is a door release cable in the event that the door locks shut and won't come open. It should be tucked in the side of the dispenser.
