It will fill.

It will not aggitate or spin. My fisrt concern was the selector dial, however the parts store told me they only sold 3 last year and 2 this year so check some other things. I removed the lid knife switch and it seemed to be OK. Nothing kicked and after while i wnt out. Now I notice the whole wash is done. Let me do another wash. I just loaded one. Let's see if Murfury's law kicks in and all is fine.

OK, I will try a new plunger switch. U see the strange thing is that sometimes the washer will finish a cycle so that kind of rules out that big wash/load selector switch.
