perhaps

Try it in the Spin Cycle ...

(the Lid Switch stops all Motor activity on that model)

Does the Motor hum at all ?

Could also be a bad Timer, Motor, or Water Level Switch ..

You may have to do some voltage tests ..

No humming from the motor - water level stopped at the correct level --- I think the lid-switch is a good place to start........that is my gut feeling w/o running any voltage tests.

You could check the Lid Switch (White to Grey) with an Ohm Meter,

OR measure the voltage across it (White to Grey) while running.. (should be 0v AC)

OR by-pass it (White to Grey) for testing ..
