What happens if you put the washer on a drain and spin cycle?

I ran it thru rinse spin and after agitating the lid lock light started to blink came on and did not drain.

The part didn't help.

Do you know how to get into diagnostic mode?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

No I could not find a tech sheet in the washer.


The tech sheet is located at the top left front of the washer, you can see it if you tip the washer back and look up the front from underneath..

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

They sure like hiding them.

They don't want you to find it.
