Here is what I've done so far in terms of trouble shooting.
- Replaced the mother control board (gonna be sending that back soon)
- opened and cleaned the water removal pump and the hoses connected to it
- Removed the tube from the water level control/pressure plate and blew through it to make sure the build up gunk had not clogged it.
I have a timer control that i got on ebay on the way, but what I don't understand is how the pump could bring in water in the initial fill, and then get stuck on bring in water during the rinse. Since I'm doing this repair myself, I'm just not sure how at this point to isolate the problem without getting every single related part and just swapping like a madman. My wife is getting pretty mad at me about having bought a lemon, and I frankly don't have the money do anything but get this working myself. Help!!
