Hello Rick,
I wanted to tell you that after trying again, the door closed light came on and started the cycle and it seemed to work but there was a continuous buzz similar to what the buzzer sounds in game shows on TV.
So after a while I canceled it and just did a spin only cycle. It also had mild burning smell. What do you think this description indicates?
