it will not rinse. Noticed that the water going in is only cold and not warm.
Clarify this statement, please. Are you saying that only cold water enters the drum at any time during the cycle? Or are you saying that only cold water enters drum during rinse?

Does the door lock and the lock led light? If unit started acting up after washing the pillow you might check the tub displacement switch located on the right side of the outer tub. Might also have some restriction in the sump hose judging from the wet clothes complaint after wash.

Only cold water enters in the rise even though the setting was warm/warm. Warm water flows during wash cycle no problem. Thanks.

Door light does lock with the red LED. but there is a delay sometimes for it to turn ON.
Is there a way to check the tub displacement switch ? I tried shorting the switch with a wire but issue remains same.

Thank You so much.
After giving up for a few weeks, I decided to test the machine again today. The power was unplugged, I plugged it back in. The machine worked perfectly fine !!! I just finished 2 loads !!!
Not sure what is going on with this machine. I noticed that the clothes were coming out a bit wet though. I rinsed it with hand before throwing it in the dryer. It was like this earlier as well. Why is it coming out wet ? Anything I should be doing ?
Also, any ideas on what is going on with this machine ?

Worked for one day. Wife put another load the day after, and the machine stopped at cycle 1. Got a replacement unbalanced switch and after replacement, machine again stopped at beginning of wash cycle 1. turning knob to final rinse and the machine spun hard (harder than usual I think) to drain and then stopped. but machine stops midway after the water fills and a few rotations. Help !!!

Yes the drum was spinning if that was what you meant ...

Sounds like motor or motor control. More than likely you can't replace one without the other as the software isn't compatible.

I just saw Samurai's posted link for motor diagnosis. Have you done those tests?
ANd is it high speed spin or just sort of rotating?

clarification Samurai - it spins with very high speed.

The machine finally seems dead. On pressing the ON button, water will begin to flow for like 15 seconds, and then a noticeable decrease in water flow speed and then machine turns OFF. I know there is no issue with water pressure or blockage in the pipes.
I could do the diagnostics Samurai mentioned since I do not have a multilmeter.
Any ideas or is it time to get a new washer ?
Thank You !
