Question about Speed Queen ATSA0AWN Front Load Washer
The machine cannot advance to the high speed spin cycle unless the wash water is drained first. This can be an issue with the drain so set the machine to drain only and if the pump works without problem then the issue is with the door latch. It is safety feature of the washer not to advance to the high speed spin cycle unless the door latch is properly activated. The intermittent behavior of the problem indicates a loose connection either in the harness connection between the door latch and the machine control or the door latch itself.
Check to make sure that the harness connection between the door latch and the machine control is intact and fully inserted to both parts. The connections must be snug fit and corrosion-free. Reseating the connections several times will help clean off dirt and corrosion build-up in the terminals and the connectors.
The door latch definitely needs to be replaced if there's no issue found with the harness and the connections. Remove the spring and wire hoop assembly securing the door seal to the outer lip of the door opening then peel off enough part of the door seal near the door latch. Remove the screws securing the door latch to the front panel then take door latch out. Install the new door latch and put the door seal back onto the outer lip of the door opening then secure it with the spring and wire hoop assembly.
