Stopped mid cycle, no lights, no response on control panel. 120 volts at door switch and most of the larger gauge wires on the control card. Read somewhere about thermal fuses but I can't seem to find them, is the door switch before or after the fuses? Thanks for any info you can provide!

Hey guys, I bought the technicians e-manual for my washer and used the schematic to locate the TCO fuse. It's interesting because I had 120volts throughout the entire circuit which would lead most people to believe the fuse was good. I guess it had failed just to the point that it wouldn't let enough current through to power up the control board. I jumped the fuse out and the washer just finished its load. Now I will just have to get a part number and order a new one. Just wanted to let everyone know about the strange way the fuse had failed.

** I bought the technicians e-manual for my washer **

You mean the 'tech sheet'? It's a free download (see the following link) and there should also be a printed copy in the machine somewhere.

** I guess it had failed just to the point that it wouldn't let enough current through to power up the control board. **

I might believe it could test as good using a continuity tester but I've never seen such a thing allow enough power to flow through it to power a hearty component like an electronic control before. If it truly did, good catch!

** Now I will just have to get a part number and order a new one. **

It can be seen at the following link:
