...and thank you as well, Oh Inebriated One (Juan for our Spanish members). This is what I found, and while the movie wasn't much on plot, it was skillfully directed.

I have the manual, but it doesn't begin to address the electrical short that I think I have. As I'm clearly not the best at reading electrical schematics, but can after time, decipher what it is that they wrote I'm looking for a bit more guidance in resolving my dilemma. Anyone with some suggestions, and patience is most welcome.

I apologize for the scan as it wasn't the clearest, nor able to be enlarged readily. Do you need a better scan or are you confident in your assessment? I'm not questioning your solution, only if whether or not you could read the diagram. Your color quotes are correct (from the original). I have read you comments, looked at your handiwork (nice!) and although your diagram for the cuts and splices is clear I'm not sure what it will actually look like. I'm not stupid, but neither can I accurately read a wiring diagram that is this involved without a bit of doubt. So, after Friday's surgery (to me by the honourable Samurai Surgeon San) I shall make this a Sunday project and hopefully won't burn too much time, just some water! Thank you, Fairbank56, and RegUS_PatOff for your excellent analysis and solutions. Once done, I will report.
Mr. Lee Fix
I leave you with a few insightful comments (okay, there are 17 of them)

This is why they pay you the big bucks. I should have read your post while I was more awake, although I don't think it would have helped.
Yes, that is the way to go with the "mixture valve"....simple and functional. I will find the download and then upload!
I found them, but they are Sumo-Sized.
I will extract the pertinent data or upload the parts manual and troubleshooting manuals in their entirety if my son, or an appliantologist can assist me.

Purchased a Speed Queen washer Model # AWN542SP111TW01 stainless tub washer (love that SS) the near cousin of our AMANA washer (resting 10 feet away).
Problem: #1. Not enough water...you can manually override it, but who wants to washersit the machine when there's games to be played.
Question: How can I override the limit, hopefully without breaching the warranty?
Problem #2: The first and second rinse waters are COLD!!! Did those government ecologists and do-gooders ever check to see which rinses better, cold or warm water? I'll save them the time; ANSWER - WARM WATER.
Question: So, how can I bypass the aforesaid cold fill for a more suds deterring warm fill on rinse #1 and rinse #2? And if anyone is going to say that I should only be using cold water or nor rinsing twice, remember - global warming results when the highly concentrated expellings of hot air by vacuous politicians become too concentrated.
As always, your keen observations and wise wisdom are honourably received, greatly appreciated, dutifully followed.

PS Some observations follow...
Understanding Engineers #1
Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want." The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't fit you anyway."
Understanding Engineers #2
To the optimist, the glass is half-full. To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Understanding Engineers #3
A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!" The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golf!" The priest said, "Here comes the greens-keeper. Let's have a word with him." He said, "Hello George, What's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?" The greens-keeper replied, "Oh, yes. That's a group of blind firemen. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime!." The group fell silent for a moment. The priest said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight." The doctor said, "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything she can do for them." The engineer said, "Why can't they play at night?"
Understanding Engineers #4
What is the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers?
Mechanical engineers build weapons.
Civil engineers build targets
Understanding Engineers #5
The graduate with a science degree asks, "Why does it work?" The graduate with an engineering degree asks, "How does it work?" The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?" The graduate with an arts degree asks, "Do you want fries with that?"
Understanding Engineers #6
Three engineering students were gathered together discussing who must have designed the human body. One said, "It was a mechanical engineer. Just look at all the joints." Another said, "No, it was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has many thousands of electrical connections." The last one said, "No, actually it had to have been a civil engineer. Who else would run a toxic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"
Understanding Engineers #7
Normal people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.
Understanding Engineers #8
An engineer was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week." The engineer took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket. The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want." Again, the engineer took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and do anything you want. Why won't you kiss me?" The engineer said, "Look, I'm an engineer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog - now that's cool."
