It could be a loose wire inside the unit. I would check it or have it checked before desiding to scrap it.

You said that you were hoping that it was just wet....was the unit flooded in anyway? If so you might want to check your household wiring for the problem, you can try to use an extention cord to plug the unit up at a different outlet that wasn't flooded. If it then works call an electrician to check the household electrical system.

I can't locate any parts diagrams on this washer. Hince repairs maybe inpossible if it needs parts. I would suggest having a tech come check it out, if a service call is reasonable.
Best suggestions I can give without being able to see the unit.

I sent you an email, but that looks like a capacitor. Glad you found one and got it fixed!
