Troubleshot and found that the solenoid had burnt up locking the drain door in closed position. I ordered solenoid, Note: I only received the solenoid. I used the old bracket and springs along with the piston arm for the solenoid. I had to break it free from the old solenoid. Once I got everything cleaned up and put together it took me about 10 minutes to install the solenoid. I manually tested mine prior to wiring back up to ensure proper movement and then tested to ensure that the piston arm did not pop out of the solenoid base.
