Hey, nobody's complaining! Everyone on this site has been super. This is something that's just difficult to diagnose long distance and my background is in mechanical, not electrical engineering. Plus, I've got a company to run and have to get back on track so it's time to fish or cut bait. haha

Since the dryer was relatively east to fix in 2007, I thought I'd take a shot at the washer.

As far as the testing you mentioned, I have determined that it is the cold water inlet/valve that was opening and admitting extra water during the last minute of the cycle. As far as tracing the wires back, well, they run back to the CCU/logic board. I'm tempted to order a new logic board and maybe a pressure switch but if that's not the problem and, since I'm about at the end of my electrical troubleshooting prowess, I'd be out those parts plus a service call and THEIR parts. It's not really a money issue, but nobody likes to pay for stuff that's not needed.

If it does turn out to be the CCU, I don't know why that would have failed. It's not as though we've had any power surges or lightning strikes. Or maybe they're the weak link the the system.

Any thoughts on THIS rambling? :-)
