    They took the lid strike off the lid and stuck it into the lid lock. If you do this, you will need to periodically remove and reinstall the strike as the control board monitors lid openings and will disable the washer if it doesn't detect any activity.

    I can see that now at the first and toward the end. Now that I think of it, I think I have tried that before with a Cabrio.



    The manual does not tell about the monitoring of the openings. Interesting.

    That is how the washer switches from done to no lights on.

    I say manual. I am talking about the booklet inside the washers that tell about the error codes and such. I have been kind tied up trying to learn them and how to work on these and do nmot remember seeing how to run instructions in the booklet. I can see just putting some of them on Regular and letting them go do their thing, but I would like to know what to expect on some of them as far as pauses, rinses, how many spins, etc..

    I was trying one. It was in Wash but at some point it would spin while Wash LED was lit. I assumed this spin was part of the Wash cycle but was not certain. As it went on through the cycles, it went through Rinse and final Spin and the appropriate LED's would light up.

    The use and care manual would have more info like that.
    What is the model#?

    Was it "spinning - spinning"?...or just turning the tub slowly....some will turn the tub slowly and spray water onto the clothes.

    Model - MVWC350AW1
    This thing has mfg date of Oct, 2012 and was bought new a couple of years ago.

    I think it was spinning high speed. I do think it may have been spraying some water while in this part of the wash cycle. It went on through the cycles afterward.

    Sure seems like it takes a long time for these to go through the complete process from sensing to final rinse. This was with no clothes in it. Not sure if that makes a difference.

    This is another one I just bought yesterday. Only one of 4 or 5 of that type I have that runs and with no funny noises, grinding, banging, etc.

    Use and care manual...

    Doesn't show times or what happens when during cycles like older washer manuals did

    I think it was spinning high speed
    If you have softener added it will have to spin to dispense it....also ( hopefully ) these new washers still have a spray rinse.

    Sure seems like it takes a long time for these to go through the complete process from sensing to final rinse
    I know ours in the wash and fold takes 45-65 minutes for light or normal load.
