Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 4 years ago.

Turn the Program Knob to the start position,

Spin Only.

  • Press Start/Pause to start the cycle and save it.
  • Press Cancel to stop the cycle and turn off the LEDs.
  • Press Cancel again to turn on the LEDs.
  • Within 5 seconds, press and hold the Options and

Start/Pause buttons until LEDs start sequentially

chasing, then release buttons......Next

 

Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start

position. The drain pump & door lock solenoid will

activate and the washer will operate in high spin

Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 4 years ago.
Door locked and washer spinning up to speed...Are you sure when you are doing a load all the water is out of tub....You may have a drain pump problem....Now try doing a load and see if it will spin properly...Check to see if all the water is draining out of tub...
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
waiting for reply
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 4 years ago.
WHen you hear that click does the door lock completely..?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes the door is locked the full time, the door lock and spin lights are lite when the washer turns off.
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 4 years ago.
I would cahange the door lock....The auxillary switch on doorlock is not activating properly...
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Can it also be the control board, those are the two items error code 47 gives me. I will buy the doorlock, but the store says I can't bring it back if that doesn't solve the problem, an I don't wanna eat $80. Is their any way to rule out the control board..
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
ok, I can do that ,but is their still anyway to test if teh control board is faulty. before i purchase the door switch.
Expert:  Bob L Your Appl Pal replied 4 years ago.
Yes you can...Remove the door lock...Measure the resistance of the PTC...If it shows shorted or open its the door lock assembly....If it shows in the neighborhood of 1500 ohms its the Board......Yours is going to be the doorlock trust me...Bob
