Well the party is once again over (for the time being at least) for this machine...I got both the wash light and the rinse light flashing, and a burnt rubber or electronics smell in the air...any ideas?

The manual linked below says itís the door lock or motor board(!)...ffs

Well looks like this old dog has learned a new to fix my SQ FL washer doohickey...and I DIDNíT have to replace, or even touch, the motor board...phew!
Turns out the reason for the kaput was a stuck pocket contents basically.
THIS TIME...unlike past episodes of this tee vee show, I fixed it myself...yea me!
Cleared the jam, re-plugged it in, and ran a rinse/spin test with the machine empty... Ēwhatís that water fall sound?Ē Oops! So then I re-connected the drain hose, better late than never. Then most of the spin was at speed I rarely experience while loaded (fast), and a top speed I had never experienced before!
So it past that test, then i re-filled with the wet contents I removed before the repair, another rinse and spin, and all is well.
