It runs until it's time to lock the lid ,then it clicks repeatedly and stops running. I don't know myself if it is the lock that is bad.thanks for your help Rick.

First make sure there's no loose screws. The clicking is the control trying to lock the lid. When it stops can you restart it or get it to spin?

Try this:

1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off).
2. Perform the following sequence of movement using the cycle selector knob.
NOTE: AFTER RESET, sequence “A” through “E” must be completed within 6 seconds.

RESET - Rotate cycle selector knob counterclockwise one or more clicks to clear sequence.

A. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click and wait ½ second.

B. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click and wait ½ second.

C. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click and wait ½ second.

D. Rotate cycle selector knob counterclockwise one click and wait ½ second.

E. Rotate cycle selector knob clockwise one click.

Successful activation of Diagnostic Test Modes will be indicated by all status LED’s (except for Lid Locked) flashing ON and OFF in half-second intervals. NOTE: LED names may vary between makes and models.

If the status LED’s do not display as described above, the sequence may not have been completed within 6 seconds. Repeat step 2 to ensure this was not the cause.

To access fault/error codes, turn the cycle selector knob until the status LED’s or display correspond as follows:

Press the START button to enter Fault Code Display Mode. The status LEDs will flash ON and OFF and “cl” is displayed on the 7-segment (if display exists).

To view last 4 fault codes:
Turn cycle selector knob clockwise to view fault codes in the order of most recent to oldest.

NOTE: A fault/error code will be removed from memory if it does not recur after 10 consecutive wash cycles.

To clear fault codes:
Turn cycle selector knob until the status LEDs flash ON and OFF or “cl” is displayed on 7-segment.

Press and hold START button for 3 seconds to clear all fault codes. Press POWER to exit Service Diagnostic Mode.

Fault/error codes are displayed by alternating the state of the Status LEDs and display (if exists). All fault/error codes have an F# and an E#. The F# indicates the suspect System/Category and the E# indicates the suspect Component system.
If the Sensing, Prewash, and/or Soak LED’s are ON, the Fault Number is represented; if OFF, the Error Number is represented. The remaining LED’s (Wash, Rinse, Spin, and Done) represent the fault and error code in binary.
