hi sounds like the board is faulty the relays are disengaging
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.
once engaged after filling it should initiate the motor to start washing but instead it pauses

replacing the board would be the next step to get it going again please rate me as that's how I get paid thank you

replaced board $225 did not fix problem, according to diagram about all else can be is motor, but now I have a $225 part not needed, ..
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.
The motor is controlled from the board u stated it did run then the machine would stop and say sensing that is not from the motor the motor has a board on it as well so if that green light is out then the motor would be dead completely you may have a faulty lif switch or a pressure switch issue

i stated it filled, but didnt agitate or spin, pump out, never said anything about it saying sensing, it said pause, and lights flashed

Hi
Expert:  Ezekiel replied 1 year ago.
I read your question and the motor would be tbe culprit but a failed relay on the board would also indicate no response from motor
