Hi Everyone, My trouble started when the machine wouldn't start a cycle and motor hummed and timed out, the lid light blinking. Ran diagnostics and found the error codes and I replaced the lid lock switch, but I continue to get the lid switch fault, in addition to the motor control fault and the lid light just stays on. From other threads on this washer, I've found the missing page in the  manual to test the lid switch and that prove's okay.  Test 3B for the drive system I cannot compete because I don't seem to be able to get manual test mode to operate.   The motor resistance checks good (5.4 ohms), for both windings and the capacitor I have checked  with the voltmeter and that seems good.
