Secondly, I do not know your skill level so please try and let me know if I am going beyond your knowledge or comfort zone thanks!

Normally this is a bad lid switch if it stops at rinse so I would check the lid switch as that is the likely issue. If not let me know.

All I ask is please use the Star Rating Link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am paid anything through the site and that will also get you a DIRECT LINK emailed to you to get back to me! are greatly appreciated so thank you very much for using this service.

Hi there,

I was just touching base with you because I have not heard back from you and the question is still open and unrated, I am not credited anything until a good star rating is supplied thank you.
