Re: Door will stop on the third panel then go back up .
What I'd do first is disconnect the opener and see how easy the door opens. You didn't indicate what type of springs you have on the door. You should be able to open and close the door by hand for the opener to operate it. If you have a torsion spring, and there is a problem with that it is not recommended for the homeowner to replace or adjust it. Extension springs are not as dangerous. If the springs are ok, and you feel a binding, lubricate the wheels and track. Once the door moves freely, re-connect the opener. IF it won't open it now you should be able to adjust the "force" for open and close. Just make it strong enough to do the job, so it will work if there is an obstruction. You can test this by putting a 2x4 under the door when finished, and it should open back up if it hits the 2x4, but not if it hits the floor.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The door lock and switch assembly has failed. You may actually hear it click several times before the code appears. If not, it may not be receiving power or signal from the central control unit to activate.
Disconnect power to the washer to avoid electric shock.
Remove the three screws from the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet then slide the panel rearward, and then lift it off the cabinet.
Disconnect the third and the fourth from right, facing the front of the washer, wiring harness connectors from the central control unit. Clean the connector terminals thoroughly then reseat it several times to ensure a good connection between them. Do the same with the connector second from the top on the left side of the central control unit.
After ensuring that the connectors are properly connected, slide the top panel back in place, and then secure it the three attaching screws.
The next thing to do is visually check the door lock and switch assembly for physical damage.
Remove the wire and spring assembly that holds the door gasket to the lip of the door opening. Use a pair of needle-nose pliers to stretch the retaining spring then remove it together with the wire.
Gently peel the part of the door gasket near the door lock/latch
assembly off the lip of the right side of the door opening. Remove
enough of the door gasket to access the door lock/latch assembly behind
the front panel.
Remove the three screws securing the door
lock/latch assembly to the front panel and slightly lift it then pull it
back off the front panel.
Pull the door lock/latch assembly out
of the washer and disconnect the wiring harness. Clean the terminals and reseat it several times.
To replace the door lock and switch assembly (part #8182634); connect the wires properly then secure the assembly into position behind the front panel with the three securing screws.
Put the eased part of the door
gasket back in place over the lip of the door opening.
that the door gasket is properly seated before securing it with the retaining wire and spring around the lip of the door opening and the
the fourth clutch is burnt probably due to a bad 4th clutch piston seal... if you can get a good trans that cheap then you should just put one in it unless you are familiar with internal trans repairs...
Removal is actually very easy and only requires a philips screwdriver and about five minutes. Open the door and look at the top of the door panel at each end - there is a screw at each top corner - one that screws in at the front, pointing toward the rear of the car, one screws in at the back pointing toward the front. Remove those. Then, inside the handle that is used to pull the door shut, there's one screw there, at the back of the inside of the handle. Remove that. That frees up the trim piece that forms the inside of the pull handle. Slide it down and pull it out (it's kind of tough to do, so if it's not coming right off, don't worry, just pull down harder and it will). When you remove that, it exposes a fourth screw that anchors the door panel to the door frame. Take that out, and then the door panel lifts up and off the door. Be sure that you push the door lock down before lifting the door panel off, so that it's easier to remove the panel. When you start to reinstall it, pull the lock shaft up so that it's easier to align it with the hole in the top of the door panel, and reinstall the four screws you removed.
