I went out and tested the unit myself, on a small and medium load size it works fine as intended. All the water valves are operating correctly. There is no siphoning that I can tell as I can fill it with water and stop the cycle and the water does not drain out on its own. The lid switch is functional. I can advance the cycle manually and pop it into a rinse, drain or spin. Spin sounds and looks good, no abnormal wobble, vibration or noise. Drain pumps out water completely.
However, on a large load size the unit will fill with water correctly, stop filling and begin to aggitate for about 30 seconds to a minute then drain out. There's about a 50/50 from what I can see that the unit will either pause and stick there after it drains out and not advance(no hum, dial won't move on its own, after several minutes no further action in washer). If it does advance it goes immediately into a spin mode until it reaches the rinse cycle where it will rinse, drain, spin and finish out.
My bafflement here is that it only seems to be large load cycles that are doing this. I tested it empty, with a medium load and with a large load of clothes in there on the large setting and all three gave me the same intermittant results.
My thoughts on this one are either a bad timer or bad pressure switch. I'm just not sure where to go on that one. I did check connectors in the back, none are loose or hanging off or anything. I did press on them all to double check though.
I would appreciate any ideas or insights into this problem if anyone has run across it before.
