thanks - I can try that, but since the lid switch works for the spin cycle, why wouldn't it work for the wash and rinse? (the spin stops when the lid is lifted, resumes when it is lowered.)
When I took the control panel off to look at the timer switch a few wires came loose, and I'm not sure where they go. (There seem to be more wires than prongs to put them on.) The loose wires are:
1) 2 blue wires labeled 3 (I think this goes on the washing machine control switch, bottom left connector on the back ,labeled 3*)
2) White wire labeled 6 or 9; 3) red wire labeled 32; 4) Yellow labeled 22
50 Dark gray no label
Two wires with white plastic covereing their connectors - 6) Blue #21 and 7) Purple #16
The connectors with no wires are:
1. on on the bottom front left of the washer control switch;
2. the bottom right back of the washer switch (labeled M, this has a black wire on the other side of the connector - the connector is labeled TM.
3. The one labeled 3* I mentioned before.
4. possible a broken connector on the pressure switch (see below)
The wiring diagrams (insde the unit and on line) don't list clearly where the above wires go or which wire goes to these connectors. It seems I have 5 possible connectors and 7 loose wires.
On the pressure switch with wires on the botton 1c (pink), 2c (brown), 3c (yellow) on the top left (labeled A) is a black wire. On the top right (labeled B) is just a nub of a connector - no wire could attach ot it. I'm wondering if the connector broke off and this would explain the problem and whether a new pressure switch would solve it (is there supposed to be a wire on position B?)
