Briefly, after a power outage...detergent door wouldn't close,and when washer was started would cycle over and over without stopping. Thought control module & door motor were at fault. As it turned out, due to the variable power changes the control module wouldn't reset properly and kept cycling. I opened the washer and removed the inner liner, re-positioned the door arm on the motor, re-assembled liner and closed. Plugged unit in and put door lock in locked position..which activates unit. Heard detergent door motor resetting, and the control module reset properly to normal-heated dry position. The fact is that knowledge of the operating procedures could save hundreds in parts and repairs by trouble shooting the system before ordering parts.
