Hey Bryan, No just the drain tube to the wall was ubstructed, now the washer drains completely. Our new problem is between rinse, spin and wash the machine stops, then unlocks the door. So you have to periodically check then hit start for it to cycle to the next mode. We think this short cycle and constant starting and stopping and unlocking has something to do with a loss of power that occured last week?

Thank you

does the control board go blank when this happens or does it just stall and blink?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
Just stalls and the green light on the start button blinks, I press start and it continues on to the next mode.
