I just wanted to follow up. I realized after reading jumptrout51's post that I didn't hear the drain pump run when I tested the inlet valve. i put some water in the washer to double check the drain pump, and it emptied fine when I forced the machine to drain. I started another run to test the inlet valve, and it just worked. So I don't know what happened. Maybe the drain pump needed to be primed, and once that was running the inlet valve was signalled to open? Anyways, thanks for the help. It saved me an expensive repair bill.
