One day, an hour before I had to go to work, I had a load of uniforms in the washer. What do you know the door is locked and won't respond to pressing cancel and no error code. I get the door unlocked by removing the toe kick panel blah blah. Clothes are sopping wet, but no leftover water in the washer, like it didn't do a spin cycle.

Then I try to start another load. Now it locks the door, starts the cycle, but the drum doesn't move and I think I hear a low pitch buzz. Goes through the cycle, but stops at rinse/spin and still no error code. I try a self diagnostic, get errors 26 and 24. I think the 24 might've come from a while back when our water heater went out. When I continue into the test, the lights flash, go off, and nothing happens.

Today I take off the back panel and look at the motor assembly. I can turn it manually. I take out the MCU and don't see any burn marks as described in http://fixitnow.com/...r-spin-f21-f26/ so I'm wondering if I should look into the door latch assembly or the motor.

during the water-heating step of the WASH cycle.
NOTE: To find correct Ohm reading refer to the Water Temperature Sensor section, page 10.
Possible Causes/Procedure
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check the water temperature sensor and connection to it.
3. Check resistance of heating element, if present on this model. (abnormal = infinity)
4. Refer to the Water Temperature Sensor section, page 10.

Water Temperature Sensor

Yes, that is about what my manual says. Like I said though, I think the water sensor error was from a while ago (haven't had the error since) and AFAIK was fixed when I got my water heater fixed (the washer would've been getting cold water in the hot water).

I'm thinking the F 26 error is more of a symptom than a cause. I didn't open the door 3+ times because I was having trouble getting the test to work (seems to just stop/do nothing after all the lights on the panel went out).
