its in the control panel. if this tests good the motor has probably burned up, you say you smelled burning correct?

you are not going to believe this but while i was talking with you the washer went through the cycle and is now on spin should i replace the switch anyway
Expert:  Bryan replied 6 years ago.
yes , its sounds like the switch is the issue, but wait a while and see if it happens again, it may have just stuck, thanks Bryan
