... LHW0050PQ4
... or what do you think?
RUN AWAY !
made by Antonio Merloni for Asko and Eurotech and Whirlpool
Motor Part #  8182447
Motor Controller / Inverter Part # 8182340 / 8182643

"... these are eurotech's relabeled whirlpool.  They have had a plethora of problems and every thread I've seen on them makes me think they are really tough to diagnose.  Problems come and go.  That is the way it was with the first one that went down.  They said it wouldn't drain, i.e. stopped mid-cycle.  So I go over restart it it drains and runs fun.  Then a few days later it stops mid-cycle.  Then it won't start.  Then it starts.

The old won't stay broken problem.

The door switch and frame problem seemed a plausible explanation, but I have jumped those out to no avail. It runs when it feels like.

One of these posts suggest that the cycle selector switch was actually falling apart.  I didn't take a real close look at mine. It wasn't obviously broken but I'm going to go take another look. It definitely has that feel of something that makes contact some times and not others."

"... Well, you read my other post regarding the random start/stops that turned out to be the cycle selector dial.  As I mentioned there as well, once I reattached the dial and made sure it was properly aligned (stop is stop, color is color, etc) I double-checked all the other electrical connections on the wiring diagram and found three that were close to coming disconnected.

Prior to that problem, I had two blown water inlet valves, which prevented the washer from running -- would return to an unlocked blinking start when it sensed it wasn't getting water.  One other thing to check (from personal experience -- it sounds as though you have much more professional experience, so I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir) is that the drain pump is operational, since the washer also checks that prior to starting the cycle.

As mentioned by other on my post, check for crimped, cut, or otherwise damaged pressure tube."
