MAH5500A control board help
I have a Maytag MAH5500A washer. The machine won't agitate in the wash cycles (fills, then turns off) and won't spin in the spin cycle (drains, door locked lamp lights, then turns off). I thought the problem was with the motor, so I called a Maytag repair guy since the motor is still under warranty. The guy wanted $475 to replace the main control board and the wax motor. I decided I could order the parts myself and save over $200. I then discovered that my control board had the burnt (only slightly) R11 resistor. So I replaced R11 and Q6, along with the wax motor. I still have the same problem. Tonight I'll try the drive system check and look for 24V at the spin lock enable wire on the control board.
I noticed a header on the control board labeled P6, the header has 3 pairs of pins labeled "diagnostics", "spin speed", and "slow fill". Does anyone know if these are jumper points or probe points? I was wondering if I put a probe across the diagnostics pins that I'd get some sort of flashing sequence, like the engine lamp on a car. If anyone has any info on the P6 header pins, that would be appreciated...

I found the following image on the P6 connection:
And an explanation on the SLOWFILL jumper...
Pins 1-4 are labeled DIAGNOSTICS on my MAH5500AWW control board.
