Do any error codes come up?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This model has no digital display. When I press power and then the start button. It clicks. The Add garment light comes on (yellow) and the the door lock light comes on (red). The drum seems to start and then shut off. After a few minutes the buzzer keeps sounding and nothing happens and I have to turn of the power.

Can you remove the top and remove the M13 3 wire plug from the CCU board?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is nite time here in California. I am not sure how to remove the top. I see one screw at the back and I have to move washer out and see if I can open the top. I can only try tomorrow during day time and contact you for further assistance.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

You need to remove the 3 screws on the top panel. Slide the top panel back and off then you will see the CCU and unplug the M13 3 wire plug and then try and start it and see what happens.

I am back. I unplugged the 3 wire from the first switch and put back same thing as before. I unplugged an oval shape switch which connect the blue wires to the black cable going to the drum I believe.The unit started went through the rinse cycle and when it started the spin cycle the drum rotated about a minute and stopped and the buzzer alarm came back. This happen every time I disconnected from the oval switch and put back.
