Hello and welcome to just answer my name is ***** ***** I will be the one to assist you. When you start the cycle is the lid lock clicking?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
It started not completing cycle a few weeks ago then the latch quit working. I found the top part of the machine where the latch is sprung up not contacting the latch indentation in the top of the door and adjusted. That part works smooth now, but still won't continue to run. It starts and adds some water then stop after about 3 minutes. Kind of like something in the circuit shuts it down.

It sounds to me like since its only allowing a little water into the unit the problem may be with the water inlet valve. Now you said you fixed the door latch so just so I can confirm its locking now? If the lid is not properly locking it will not allow a cycle to start completely.

I noticed that your question was still open. Are you needing further assistance?
