PROBLEM FINALLY CURED, COULD NOT DIAGNOSE WAX MOTOR BY UNPLUGGING DURING SPIN AS MACHINE WOULD NOT GO INTO SPIN MODE AND SHUT ITSELF OFF, FINALLY TOOK WAX MOTOR APART IN THE DOOR SWITCH AND FOUND WAX WAS ALL OVER IT - HMMMM, DOOR SWITCH COSTS $53, WAS ABLE TO FIND SAME WAX MOTOR FROM MAYTAG DISHWASHER P/N 99001807                                                          REPAIR CLINIC PART # 752102 $17,

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP   - TERRY

FOR BETTER EXPLANATION TO US APPRENTIE, THE DOOR LOCK MECHANISM HAS 2 ELECTRONIC LOCKS - ONE IS A SIMPLE SOLENOID - I MISUNDERSTOOD THAT THE WAX MOTOR WAS THE ONLY LOCKING MECHANISM IN THE DOOR
