Our Samsung washing machine will turn off periodically during the cycle. It usually comes back on with the chime within 5-10 seconds and resumes the cycle. lately at the end of the cycle, the door lock is not unlocked. We have to turn the machine on and hit the start/pause button to unlock.

There have been many occasions when we turn the machine on and turn the dial to select a different cycle and the machine will just power off. The machine will also frequently power off when we hit the start button. the machine is very temperamental. Seems you have to hit the start button just right to get it to run, but even then it will typically power off during the initial drum rotation, but as mentioned previously, it will come back on and resume the cycle.

I suspect there is a bad board somewhere. Is there a way to troubleshoot? I found instructions online to enter the diagnostic modes, but that wasn't exactly helpful. Probably because I didn't know what I was looking for.

Thanks in advance for any help.
