Greetings -

While trying to diagnose the refusal of my washer to enter full spin mode, I have been unable to actually enter the test mode I have found of: unplug - wait 30+ seconds - plug - press signal - press delay start - press signal - press delay start

Have also tried pressing :extra rinse" instead of pressing "delay start"

Anyway, the washer will not enter full spin mode, nothing is in the cleanout plug, it drains just fine.

Soap is All, and less than recommended amount is used(recommended by the line on the cap).
