05 - Lid Not Fully Closed
On most top load machines the washer will not agitate or spin without the lid being fully closed. Close the lid after loading the washer and ensure there are no obstructions.
06 - Gibson Washer/Dryer Combo Control Board
Since a washing machine control board provides voltage to nearly all of the washer's electrical components, a faulty board may not be sending power to the drive motor during the wash or spin cycle. If power is not reaching the drive motor, you should first confirm the lid or door switch test properly with a multimeter. If the lid or door switch is working properly, the control board is likely at fault. You can inspect the board for signs of burning or a shorted-out component. You can also use a ...multimeter to test the power output terminals on the board after reviewing the appliance's wiring diagram.
