I meant the whole door lock, not just the latch. (Is it not possible to edit postings?)

The washer just washed a "Knits & Delicates" with agitation and spinning. Thanks to you all for the help!!!!

Samurai's guidance and the service manual for the newer model were helpful for the "last mile", re-installing the boot/bellow; like understanding how it went on at the back side and using spacers to get the spring in place.

References: (1) the generic Electrolux service manual online. The topis of motor not running is on page 50. (2) Tech Sheet in the washer. - Pub. 31-15405. One difference is that the generic manual mentions a 10 and 6 pins on the speed control board, while the washer has a 9 and 4 pins, as pointed out in this troubleshooting: http://appliantology...r-wsxh208v1ww/. Based on the feedback for that posting I used the tech sheet for troubleshooting. And I'm assuming that the both pin plugs are reversed compared to the graphics in the sheet and the comment by Steve in the referenced post (as there is no connector for "pin 3 of the nine pin plug" if you read them from top down as suggested in the sheet).

Problem:
Initially the motor would agitate, but not spin. A local technician suggested I replaced the pump, which I did. Though after that the engine did not turn. The timer does move. The door locks and the water runs, when starting a cycle. The pump also pumps the water out.

Troubleshooting
In the tech sheet the 6 points is for troubleshooting, when the motor will not run. So that fits well.

Step 3 there is 120 volt between pins 2 and 4 in the 4 pin plug. "If the meter reads 120 VAC go to step 4."
Step 4. The voltage drop between pin 6 of the nine pin plug and pin 4 of the four pin plug is 120 VAC. "If the meter reads 120 VAC go to step 5."
Step 5. The reading between pin 3 of the nine pin plug and pin 4 of the four pin plug is 120 VAC.
Step 6. There is no resistance between pins 1 and 3 of the four pin plug. (The resistance bewtween pin 2 and 4 of the four pin plug is 17.4 ohms.)

Please advice on next steps and how to get the right troubleshooting advice for this specific washer.

Peter
