Ok it lasted about $50 dollars worth of laundromat costs. I've got a much simpler used Estate washer now. I'd cleaned the sensor off twice and then the unit would not recognize that the lid was closed even though the lid lock POS mechanism was working. I assume this means the control board is bad. It's going to the scrappers after I pull useful parts off.
I got the washer off Craigslist it's fairly old but seems good. Mechanical control, gears, very large motor.
