Thank you so very much for your expertise and patience. I went to a local parts store and replaced the switch with a generic micro switch for $6.71. Laundry getting done tonight...I am out of the dog house....for now. :thanks:

Bingo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rocker:

I removed the top, located the switch, tested the connection by doing a hard connect (red/black) and the machine began to spin.

It looks a little worn and toasted inside....

Okay, let me take a look. Interesting that you said its the lid switch because when I disconnect the power from both machines and then reconnect it, the "IE" ERROR shows on the display, if i open the lid and close, the ERROR clears and the machine begins to fill up. I know its hard to tell, but could any of this been caused because it was overfilled with laundry? Thanks!

OK, when the Washer should be running,
one Meter Probe on the White wire of the clear Relay
other Probe on one Black wire of the black Relay
then:
one Meter Probe on the White wire of the clear Relay
other Probe on other Black wire of the black Relay

Nothing registered on the meter

Yes, you are absolutely right. I did do that and nothing registers on the meter for either black cable.
