there are a couple of things that can do this, 1 the motor is bad, 2 the board , do you smell anything getting hot or overheating?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
No there is no sign of any overheating. all cycles work only for a maximum of 30 seconds sometimes less before the machine shut itself off. then the power comes back with the light around the dial flashing in a circle and the dial needs to be pushed in before it can continue
