Need some help from the Samurai !!, I have a Kenmore washer that will no longer final spin, water drains fine, and shuts down at 7 minutes and beeps. I have pulled a code E47 (door thinks door PTC circuit is open in spin). The door locks when the final rinse light is on, and I checked the 2 pin at the board when this happens and it is closed, which tells me its working and I should change the board, but i have read other forums (that dont drink beer, so I dont trust them) where people have had that result and replaced the board, only to have the same problem and then have to replace the door lock assy. Seems like a crap shoot, no matter the results of the test. I am leaning towards the door lock assy, just because I have had problems with them in other washers in the past. It seems to me from your web site, I should just relax, drink a beer and replace the lock assy, then if it doesn't work, return it to you and order the control board? Thanks, Tim

During "Spin", is the Door locked ?
Is the Door really locked ?
If so, unplug the Washer Power Cord from the Wall Outlet,
can you then open the Door right away,
OR only after a few minutes ?

Oh knowledgeable one, I have replaced the door latch switch as per your correct advise, and my washer now spins like a gifted samurai. Your wisdom is only proceeded by your kindness in sharing it. You have no doubt saved my marraige. My wife can resume her duties washing clothes, and I am no longer required to sleep on the couch. I have generously donated 1,000 pennies on your behalf, to the beer fund, in hopes that you will never become sober and realize you are distributing invaluable information for free. I incourage others to double, triple or even quadruple my feeble gift of gratitude. Thank you kind sir, and koudos for the good work for the Easter Seals

Okay my knowledgeable one. It appears I have a new problem. This has happened three times since I replaced the door switch. Apparently we have gremlins. We will finish a load, and shut the door, power is off. When we come back to the washer, the door is locked (and door lock light lit). The first time, I tried the old, unplug the washer trick you taught me, had to wait about a minute till the lock released, opened the door, and had about a gallon of water fall onto my shoes (the washer was full of water). The next two times, I was much wiser, and set the machine to rinse and spin, which worked. We have since just left the door cracked open. Washer works fine otherwise, washes, rinses, agitates, and spins (water drains). Should I call a priest?

So if the machine fills with water after it is shut off, you need a new fill valve

... and if you leave the Door open, the mysterious water doesn't appear ?
May be a bad Control Board
