HORAYYYYYY!

I am washing my 1st load of laundry! It took us about 45 minutes to fix, with several interruptions from 4 kids and dinner- but we did it! well, actually my hubby did it- I just held the parts.

we did get a few photos- I'll upload them today.

It was easy easy- just like you said it would be.

and it saved us a huge bundle.

 

I am VICTORIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and a domestic goddess, to boot! LOL

great job..... give your husband a beer and break out the blender for you!

It is never a bad thing to leave it to the professionals. Inexperience can lead to more damage or risk of injury. You can always call A&E Factory Service (1-800-905-9505), Sears(1-800-469-4663), or local service man you can trust (servicemagic.com).

Do the happy dance :woohoo: 

 

 ..............But I would hang onto the old pump. After reading the old posts, if the hose is pushed down to far into the standpipe and is up against the bottom of the p-trap, it could restrict the volume of the water....

and i resurrect this sucka again!

Now my happy little washer decided to stop spinning. No funny smells or anything. The display says "LE" and it will run, water will come in, and the drum will consider moving, but then changes its mind. and I hear this high pitched sound, like it wants to go, but cannot. Help!

thanks!

LE fault indicates problem with the rotor positioning sensor (hall sensor) or the motor stator.  Check resistance of hall sensor from pin 5 to pin 1 and pin 2.  If sensor is good should read 10k ohms from pin 5 to pin 1 and 10k ohms from pin 5 to pin 2.  If either test shows open circuit, sensor is bad.  The high pitched sound concerns me though.

Welcome back, neehow!  Nice to see you again.   :smile:

 

Remove the back panel from the washer and tighten the center mounting bolt in the back of the drum to cinch up the rotor to the drum splines. If the bolt was loose and the noise continues, then the splined cylinder in the rotor is stripped and you need to replace the rotor assembly.

Making you own soap is okay, only if you see absolutely zero suds inside. Those drain pumps are great at pumping water but terrible at pumping air.

I AM VICTORIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :rocker:  :rocker: :rocker:  :rocker:  

thanks for the post of info,  I also googled the part and found a video of the thingy- I am washing a load of laundry right now! My 4 girls helped and watched. It took all of about 10 minutes! No noise, and she spins like a whirrling dervish!

 

Yay Me! I am the queen of my castle!

 

Thanks guys for the troubleshooting- I can only imagine how much this would have cost me to call a tech in!

 

DRINKS

ON ME! :dazzler:

aaaah!  this POS washer again. Whenever I put on the hot water, to wash some clothing- the sukkah makes this horrible crazy squealing screeching sound from the water hose coming in, or at least the back of it. Perhaps the machine itself!  It just started doing this a few weeks ago. DH thinks it is cavitating (not sure what that is). Oh something else! Any thoughts?

No sound on "tap cold" wash/rinse which is what I usually do-but the whites get hot water, my mama dun told me...

 

thanks for the help!

Verify that the Hot and Cold Water Hoses are NOT the aftermarket stainless steel "FloodCheck/FloodSafe" hoses (malfunctions frequently)


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
