Just run it empty, turn it on like you have clothes and see if it now starts to even fill with water.

Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
Okay, was it doing this before you replaced the door gasket?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes but is was off and on i eventually got it to run but was having trouble with door lock working but don't seem to have that issue now previsoly it was stopping in the middle of cycle.
now the pump runs for about 5 min the door unlocks and the start light is flashing like u r starting a new cycle this is what its doing now
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
Okay, last question, can you change cycles and selections on the front panel?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes it is working like normal
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.

Okay and I am sorry to say that you have a bad main control board. This is the board that controls everything. It is located in the front left bottom of the washer. I am sending you a link to a diagram and the board is #260 on the diagram. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
do you know how much this past costs
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
I have checked several sites and the average cost is $225 plus s/h.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
ok thanks
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.
You are welcome and again sorry about the bad news.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
one last thing could a bad or malfunching door lock cause this
Expert:  Randy replied 2 years ago.

No because the door lock has no control over the drain pump. If the door lock was bad it would not drain at all.
