I have a ge front load washer wcvh6800. When you push start, the door locks, basket spins, washer does not fill with water, pumps and then I unplug it. I replaced the main control board. Entered service mode and cleared al errors. Successfully ran all tests. Tried to run a wash cycle and it did the same thing.
Can anybody out there give me some advice ?
Thanks

120v
Water valves work. I ran t01 through t13 in the service repair mode. Every test checked out even the end of line test. Then I try to run a normal wash cycle and it locks. Spins a couple times but doesnt add water

Fills to all 3 levels, then pumps out water ?

Be sure to check the pressure hose to the pressure switch for wear holes-- common problem in these units and can cause all kinda strange behavior.

It checked out through the service checks. I actually think it is the door lock. I pulled it and one of the coils is half way melted. So it is failing the self test before it washes

Door lock it is... basic law of Appliance Repair is that you gotta fix the obvious problems first before you can even go on to fix the other problems IF there even are any other problems.

That is the inside of the lock. The coil looks burnt I think. There is a nice melted ring on the copper I was overlooking the fault code. So I think a new lock will work. It locks but wont unlock. I kept having to do it manually. I took a pic but it wont let me upload it
