do you happen to have a multimeter?

Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 10 months ago

this part is going to need to be tested. There is also a video on how to test it. If this tests ok then all that is left is your water pressure switch is the issue and needing to be replaced.

The water solenoids are being turned off they open for 5 seconds, same with drain solenoid when they go bad there on or off and pressure switch is a 2 wire and you can check that by blowing in it with a ohm meter on the contacts it's make or break switch and it works.I'm a electrical contractor for 30 yrs I use to service app.
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 10 months ago

I am going to need you to check the wiring to your motor control board

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
It's plugs you miswire there all different the water solenoids are opening every 2 min and then shutting off I put on drain doing same thing I'm sitting here watching it bad control board maybe all components work?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
You can't miswire
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 10 months ago

I wasn't saying you miswired it. I said you will need to check it to make sure there are no lose wires. There is the main control board and the other is the motor control board both will need to be checked.
