So it will wash for you and everything, but does not spin out at all? Does the door lock light come on also?

When it get to the spin function, does the water drain and just keeps trying to balance itself?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

water drains the barrel just keeps rotating back and forth as if it is just washing. the clothes are still soaked


Do you know how to access the tub area of the machine to check the out of balance switches?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

not sure how where they are

they are item 16 in the diagram below

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I would have to pull the unit away from the wall

This is all accesible from the front of the machine, you need to remove the hinges for the door and there should be 2 mode screws on the opposite side, this will let you remove the front of the machine...

ok I will get back to you after I do this

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I just ot the panel off and pushed the switch and then tried to have it spin it did not work

when resting they should show closed with a meter, if they sense an out of balance they will not allow the unit to spin..

there is one on the bottom and one on the right hand side of the tub.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I am back, had a small emergency, I am saying test the switches to make sure they work, DO you know to test a switch?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

not really I can access the bottom one easily but not the one on the side of the barrel it towards the top very difficult to get to

These switches you need to remove the wires and hook them to an ohm meter, they should read closed with the button out and open with the button pressed in.
