At this time I cannot run the simple test as requested as I have taken the machine apart. Motor is out, control box is out and front control plate is off. I was trying to see if any connections were not in place. I can tell you that the machine performs as it should except for the spin cycle, it makes a humming noise from the motor when spin is supposed to take place. As for the door lock, while it is in operation it will not open until it is finished, or until you cancel the operation. I have also performed the diagnostic test in the manual which was taped on the inside of the unit, two of which tested the lock and unlock function. Both worked as the manual stated they should. I could put the machine back together and test again unless the above extra info steers the diagnosis in another direction. Thanks for any help!
