Customer Question

If you're not getting an error code, then unfortunately the motor control board isn't telling the main control board to advance so it's not moving from one function to the next, or the main control board is bad. This is not something you can test for this particular issue since it's a logic problem and you can't test communication between the 2 boards so below is a link to the motor control board. The main control board is no longer made and not likely the problem, but below is the motor control board you'll want to order and replace from a place that does allow returns if for some reason the main board is actually faulty. Although, if the main board is faulty it is probably time for a new washer. CLICK HERE for motor control board We are on the honor system here.

Ok. there is a diagnostic test for the motor control board. I'll check that.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 1 year ago.
There is, but it won't tell you anything. The logic for the diagnostic test is completely different than the logic for a normal cycle. You can't test the logic which is what your problem is.
