just FYI, it has been a couple weeks since I replaced the door latch, and the Spin cycle seems to be working again. It does occasionally behave badly with the clothes coming out soaked again, but usually it is good again. So I guess this was the problem, when I tried to change the door latch the first time. Thanks so much for your help in pointing me to this part of the washer!

So this is what I found. I replaced the door latch with the old one. When the washer is running in rinse cycle, if I turn off the washer by pushing the knob in (instead of by pulling the plug), the door can open after a couple minutes -- so I guess this is good. With the old latch in place, I was able to go through a wash cycle normally the first time, it did the fast spin during Spin cycle and all the water was drained. I am not sure if this was a fluke or maybe the "new" door latch was faulty. I will have to do a couple more test runs to see if it is really fixed. Will let you guys know soon. Thanks.

yes it just plugs in. that's why i don't understand how the latch could be the problem. I just wonder if I did something wrong when I put in the new latch, because the issue seems to have started not long after replacing it, and the door can be opened immediately after unplugging the power -- which you seem to indicate is not right.

can the wires of the door latch assembly only connect in one direction or could it be backwards somehow causing it not to function properly?

Valuable additional info! This indicates a bad door latch assembly ==> http://www.repaircli...ber=GLTF1670AS0

Replace it before the speed control board.

This is interesting, because I had just replaced the door latch with a new one a couple weeks ago, before all this started. (I thought I had a faulty door latch at the time, when in fact the rubber lining was simply not secured properly). In any case, I tried connecting the door latch both old and new as in the video, but the door will still open immediately after I unplug the power. Unless I am connecting it the wrong way, and I don't see any other way it can be connected, I'm not sure what is going on.
