thermal fuse replaced, but original was ok after all.

Power to unit good, light is on in tub as well. Open / close of door DOES reset the start switch.

Start switch tested ok by appliance repair shop, but not tested IN unit.

The start switch resets each time the timer is moved to a new cycle to start again, but

the unit will not start.

 

My own Tip:  Once past the run cycle, and the cool down cycle, it DOES turn on and off as usual

in the "Wrinkle Guard" cycle, telling me something seems amiss when it wants HEAT to be on in the run cycle.  After running continuity tests on all parts and putting unit back into operation, it ran for about 6 weeks ( not sure why ), then all of a sudden "NOTHING" again when attempting to start once more.  Ideas ?   

 

Thank you,

Craig
