Lots of ideas for no spin/drain on this unit, but since it works fine on the Delicate cycle, that seems to rule out a lot of things (e.g. lid switch, pulley, transmission, etc.)  I did notice a post on another forum where someone had suggested the 2-speed motor in this unit might cause this behavior by working properly in slow speed but not high speed.  I have swapped the motor with another one I had access to and determined it is NOT the problem.

 

I'm left thinking the problem is either in the timer or the control board mounted on the timer; since both of these are fairly expensive, I'd like to diagnose a little further to make sure which of these two (or something else) is the cause.

 

Any ideas??

  Timer, the conrol board is the water temp control.

That's what I thought, but tried to test with water temp control board disconnected and couldn't get it to work at all...

  Temp control board should have no effect on motor operation other than it won't agitate without water in tub. Washer will only fill in rinse cycle, if set to cold, without temp control board.

 

  Best technique would be to check for 120vac at the black wire at motor connector when in high speed agitate or spin.

 

FYI, if motor runs in low speed, then the high speed winding must be ok as motor always starts in high speed, even when low is selected.
