Maytag Neptune keeps spinning

I replaced the timer thinking that was the problem, but to no avail. Still doing it. Is it the computer board on the back of the control panel that's fried?

[align=left]ContinuesTo Tumble After The Wash Cycle Is Finished:[/align]
[align=left]Check for a stuck button on the door lock enable switch in the door lock mechanism. You can verify this at the machine control board by checking for continuity across P3(7)/YL 36 to P3(1)/RD23. If the door is unlocked and there is continuity, the switch button is stuck.[/align]
[align=left]At the end of the wash cycle, the machine control monitors the door lock enable switch for disengagement. If the switch is stuck, the washer will continue to tumble till the door unlocks, even though the door is actually unlocked.[/align]
Replace the door lock mechanism.

I guess the unplugging and waiting thing is a fail-safe of some sort? I have to unplug it, wait for it to unlock, then I can start a new load as usual.
I'll let you know what I find out. Thanks much.

After confirming that the tester works, I followed your suggestion: there is no continuity between P3/7 and P3/1. What does this mean?
I didn't see any burnt resistors, but I wasn't checking that closely. I'll try again.

As for the way things work now, the dial goes around as the wash cycle progresses, and functions as it has since we got it about 4 years ago (second hand). When it gets to either of the OFF positions, that's when it continues to do it's back and forth tumble thing. I've even replaced the timer/dial unit and it continues to exhibit the same behavior. It's only after I unplug the washer and wait that five minutes that the door unlocks. I've tried plugging it back in only a minute after unplugging it and the door is still locked. It has to be the five or so minutes. I have to do this every time.

Thanks for the help.
Happily washing again.
