Well...dead FULL of water...it's been bailed out and when I opened the control panel I found a lot of corrosion on the exposed metal. Anyways, it filled up just right, then stopped. No actions whatsoever. I found and repaired a few damaged wires and a bad terminal on the fuse, but still no motion. Neither the timer motor or the drive motor hum. Is this a bad timer or something I haven't found yet? Thanks!
