Other than the replacement under recall in 2004, have you replaced the board since then? If not, then given your power outage scenario (and that you probably weren't using a surge suppressor on your washer) then the board is still the prime suspect.
Yes, I just replaced the speed control yesterday with a new unit from Repairclinic.com, and that got the tumble action back but timer will not run and can't get spin action even moving knob to "spin" by hand. My wife points out that when she tried to use the washer after the storm, the timer ran very fast and went through the whole run in about a minute. I realize that the speed control has some control over the timer movement, but thought I'd mention that.
Use the wiring diagram to locate the other end of the timer supply wires at the speed control board and make your measurements there.
Understood, and will do that as soon as I have time, but point was to try and spot possible bad timer through use of experienced repair persons here in the forum rather than pull the washer back out and apart, I realize that it's not that hard a job to tear down, but since seeing the flow chart that points to a bad timer now, wanted some thoughts other than my own. Thanks for the reply..
