All the cycles work. Will drain and spin a little while draining but will not go into real spin mode. The power was interupted while it was turned on. This happened last year. The service man checked everything and could find nothing wrong. Then he remembered a little thing he was taught at a recent repair seminar. Sometimes the washer computer gets confused and needs to be reset. He did something like this:
Unplug washer for 15 seconds.
Plug in and wait 5 seconds.
Lift and close the lid 5 times.
Wait a few seconds.
Start the machine.
It worked like a charm. I must have written it down wrong because it's not working for me now. Does anyone know how to reset the washer computer?
I know this sounds funny, but I was with the man the entire time and this weird procedure finally did the trick. Apparently the washer has some kind of glitch.
