A few weeks ago my 6 year old Maytag washer Neptune MAH4000AWW stopped delivering mostly dry clothes at the end of the wash cycle (all of them).  I read you great information on the Neptune series and checked the pump (cleaned all the components, and tested exit out of washer, out of pump and out of the hose;  all clear) I check the control board for the three parts that could burn out but the control board looks perfect.  I then check the door lock and found two problems the Door Lock switch was broken (accounts for the lack of Door Locked Light) and the door ramp was so worn down the door bar was sliding under the plastic latch. I used your site and order the parts (great price and swift delivery). They arrive Saturday over a week ago. I installed them and tested the washer success!

My wife must have done about 10-15 loads of wash with no problem. Yesterday, dripping wet clothes after the wash cycle. I checked the door mechanism and it is latching, door lock lit is on and wax motor is engaging the switch on the opposite side.  There is no excess water in the drum and the control board looks just as good as it did the first time. (no burn marks on any of the resistors)

Setting the washer on spin and starting the unit only gives the pump noise and the slow tumbling of the drum. Door lock lit is on and I have manually watched as the wax motor pushed the plunger into the switch on the door lock spin enable switch. 

 I am now at a loss for what other checks to perform. I humbly request the assistance of a master samurai to show me the path to enlightment.
