I taught I might have to replace the whole machine. Then I realize we had power but the latch and lock assembly wasn't locking for the machine to lock and start to wash. Unplug the washer, took the top off of washer, unscrew two bolts from latch assembly, replace latch assembly and two bolts. then unscrew two bolts from lock and replace it. Machine works great now.
