First thanks for the help and time. the washer fills with water and rotates and drains will not gear up for final spin door lock light does not come on, I have removed door and bottom panel and the panel under the control knobs (view of the dryer guts and harness) how do I remove the panel to check door lock mechanics.

In the center of the "dryer guts and harness"area, screwed down from the top, is a single 5/16" screw holding that small panel in place. After you remove it, pull the panel forward to remove and gain access to the latch assm.
I suspect the wax motor has failed and taken with it the r11 resistor on the machine cont. Board (possibly a triac or 2 also).
to access the board, go ahead and remove the front of the dryer and a couple of screws holding down the top of the dryer...machine control is located there, front right.
if you can find the resistor marked r11, you will prolly see that it is smoked.
if this is the case, you'll need a wax motor and new or repaired control board. If you have any soldering skills,there are detailed repair instructions for this on this site if you search, or you can send it to fixyourboard.com and let them fix it, or purchase one risk-free from repairclinic.com.

It's the switch furthest to your right as you're looking at it. The last one I worked on only needed the switch. Put it into spin and watch to see if the wax motor moves the plunger that pushes that switch to the closed position.

If the plunger on the wax motor isn't extending out far enough to engage that second switch, the z-zpring behind the wax motor may have compressed. If that's the case, you can pull it our and stretch it just a hit and put it back in.

If it's getting voltage, 120vac, then it's bad. If it doesn't have the black shaft, it should be replaced in any event..  http://www.repaircli...mber=MLG2000AWW
