Sounds to me like you have a lid switch problem. If you want, remove the 2 phillip head screws that hold the lid switch in place,, cut the 2 wires to it, and splice them together, and see if it drains. If so, buy a new switch, and splice it in. Make sure you do this with the power off. Tom Appliance Educator, Appliance Parts, Washer and Dryer Parts, Refridgerator and Freezer Parts, Stove and Oven Parts
