The lid locks, I get a start light, it says it is 'sensing' - but no action.
O.K. - we'll give that a try. It's going to be awhile - as we have to fly to Tucson from Maine Wed ref sick mother-in-law.
I certainly can rate your timely replies - but as to whether that solves my problem - only replacement will tell.
I checked the actuator best I could - unplugged connection - replugged it in. This time the washer did go into a 'cycle' but only for short period each time. I've ordered a replacement actuator, which will probably arrive while I'm away. (I'm not too intimidated by this sort of thing as I used to repair electro-mechnical radar equipment when in the Navy years ago) - Will replace it sometime around the 13th after I return from Tucson. Thanks much - will get back to you then.
I replaced the actuator. Same problem.
Note* There is no 'Done' LED on this model. (Are we discussing the Samsung MVWX700XW) here??There are more that six knob selections - where does one start and end? There are 13.
I see I mistakenly wrote Maytag at the beginning of this thread, but with the Samsung model number. So my fault. Wife insists we now call a repairman.
My mistake - it IS a Maytag - I wrote a note on our Samsung refrigerator manual she handed me.The LED readout is to the right of the dial
Correction - Left of the dial
But at what position do I start the selector knob sequence?Remember that there are 13 positions.
OK - Will try it again....
I get all the way to the end of the sequence when the "End Signal" LED is lit - (there is no Done LED) - after I push 'Start' I get two flashing lights. When I turn the dial one 'click' no error codes are displayed.
Wife says to save it for Repair Services.
10-4. We just got back to Maine at 0200 hrs from Tucson putting her mother into an assisted living complex. Clothes going to laundromat.....
