Having an issue with this machine that started with it not completing a cycle. The lid lock light would be flashing and the laundry would still be very wet. The only way to clear this was to unplug the machine. Now, it won't cycle at all on any mode. Pushing start, it makes noise with the sensor light lit and lid lock flashing. I tried putting it in diagnostic mode, but can't find info. Anyone have the repair manual? Thanks!

Unplug the machine and remove the J15 connector from the board.

Set your meter to measure resistance on the lowest ohms scale (RX1).

In the connector measure:
Lock solenoid between J15-1 and J15-3 = 85 ohms to 155 ohms.
Lock switch J15-3 and J15-4 = 0 ohms locked, 1 or open circuit unlocked,
Lid switch J15-3 to J15-2 = 0 ohms with the lid closed, 1 or open circuit with the lid open.

All resistance readings are correct. The LED is lit in the main control board. When I go in to diagnostic mode, and start auto diags, the lid lock light flashes, I hear the click of the lock, the motor makes noise and it stops.

Control board received and installed, machine calibrated and I'm happy to say it is working fine. Thanks for all the assistance.
