WIDl126 - door lock and easy iron flash

A couple of months ago my 126 starting playing up, I could hear the water been taken in, but was not entering the drum, it just seemed to drain back out. The door lock red light would begin flashing along with the green easy iron button ( a draining noise could also be heard). After about 5 mins the nosie ends and I can eventually turn the machine off and open the door.

The machine began working again a week later and has been doing so for the last month or two, but now it has started playing up again. Anybody know what is wrong and should I just invest in a new machine?

Maytag neptune washer MAH-1 start button turns off, does not spin


Is it pumping water? If not then pump is bad.
Is the door locking? If the door will not lock, the washer will not enter a spin mode. See if the lock light is lite on the console.

Check for continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch when the switch actuator button is pressed in. If there is no continuity across the Door Lock, Spin Enable Switch, replace the Door Lock Switch Assembly.(Check for 120 vac across the Door Lock Wax Motor)

Please rate this solution and ask for further clarifications if needed.
