yes, it draine


it is one of 3 things causing this, check these items to make sure that it is not the control board itself gone bad.


  1. remove the bottom panel and make sure that you have 120 volts there, a bad electrical connection there will cause this.
  2. check the door switch to make sure that it is operating properly
  3. if the first 2 check okay then you will need to replace the control board/ timer in the console to repair this ,
