I turned the washing machine on at night and when I went to put clothes in the dryer the next day it was still sitting full of water but would not move into any cycles. I have tried every cycle, water level, and water temperature and it seems completely dead. After opening the control panel I checked the fuse which looks fine. I removed the switch and tested it. The first time it seemed dead but when I tried again to be sure I was holding the VOM prongs were in good contact it seemed fine. I read the next thing to do is to test the timer, but there are so many wires involved in the timer harness that I have no idea how you go about testing that.
ANSWER Hello Nik,
You need to put the VOM on ac voltage and verify voltage to the wall receptacle. This sounds more like the lid switch 22001682 than the timer 22001026. True, the timer is a constantly changing on/off switch, but if the unit is unresponsive, the issue is most likely the lid switch. If the unit never fills, you could have a bad water inlet valve 22002360. There is also the possibility of a bad pressure switch 208201.
