The touch screen connects to a control board. Regardless of what the diagnostics indicate, the control board may be defective.

Washer will not start. Start button flashes but lid is not locked

If the lid lock light is flashing, that is an error. If the lid doesnt lock it won't do anything. There is a diagnostic test that you could do to prove it if you are good with electronics and ohm meters. Most tecks would probably tell you to replace the lid lock assembly. That is probably the cheapest part. The only problem is that without the diagnostis test it could be somthing else. But first check to see that the wire that comes from the lock is securely plugged into the control board.

If you put a jumper wire across the low pressure switch and unit runs then either the low pressure switch is bad or you are low on refrigerant. Then check to see if you have 24 volts from common to Y1 at the control board,if you do then it's the low pressure swtch or low on refrigerant, if not it's the board if you have 24 volts coming into the board on Y1 and Common.

Without provocation the system reboots itself. memory diagnostic check ran fine. hard disk diagnostic ran fine. I am assuming mother board is bad. does anybody have similar experience? I have heard if one...

try to check if your system works well, if there are no viruses that infects your computer... and also you can check if there are no loose connections on your motherboard especially the system fan. Usually, the computer restarts because of overheat, it automatically restarts as to prevent the board from damage.

about the recovery disk you are talking about,
kindly check this link

Well i hope this works :)
thank you..

check your lid switch. if your lid swith is bad, it will fill and agitate, but will not pump or spin. therefore it will not go into rinse cycle without being able to pump out water. some lid swithes control the agitation also (usually frigidaire and older maytags), but i doubt yours does. you can check the lid switch for continuity while opening and closing the lid with a meter

Sears elite he dryer stopped working

Bad control panel. Replace the control panel at When your control panel clicks like that it means that a resistor or solder joint has gone bad and it is cheaper and easier to just replace the board

No spin

Cowboy, make sure the lid switch is operational. If it is and you can get it to spin in the test mode but not in the regular cycle, sounds like a control board issue to me. back.
