Hi, I have a maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW. Several months ago

Resolved Question:

Hi, I have a maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW. Several months ago it quit working properly. I replaced the wax motor and no longer had problems. Now it has quit working again. The problem is different this time. The door locked light comes on and the door locks, so it isn't the wax motor. Now the machine shuts off 30 to 50 seconds after the start button is pressed, regardless of the timer/cycle position. Water will start filling at the beginning of a wash cycle and will start draining at the beginning of the spin cycle then the machine will shut off. I have done the motor and motor control diagnostics, no problems there. I have checked the out-of-balance circuit and switches, even jumpered them out, no changes or problems with it. Would the problem be in the machine control board or the timer or somewhere else?
Thanks for your help.
