My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you today. Does your washer go into high speed spin now?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no it does not tryed to rinse and spin first with no results then tried to run full cyclical with the same result water in and nothing with no code showing just time coming off timer as if it was operating properly
Expert:  Alan replied 1 year ago.
Try this, start it in a spin cycle and let it go for a minute. Make sure the door is locked then cancel the cycle and try to open the door immediately, if it opens then you have a bad door latch. It should not open for about 30 seconds or so. Below is a link to the latch.
