Kenomore front load washer, doesn't do the spin cycle
Posted 13 September 2005 - 07:41 PM
The tub doesn't spin in the Rinse/spin cycle or the Final spin. But it looks like the adgetate works. All the pumps look like they work also. The timer works. It progresses normally to the finish. The spin doesn't work in any of the other locations on the timer (Delicate/hand wash, permanent press).
It does do that little 2 slow spins to balance the load. It will do that 3 times. But it never takes off. (I did try manually balancing the load and I tried it with 3 different loads and it still didn't spin). You can hear something in the machine humming during this cycle.
I haven't taken the rear panel off yet and haven't started checking anything, but thougth I would check with you folks if there is a common solution to this.
Thank you, Roman

I couldn't see how the door switch would give me a problem with just the spin cycle. It looks like if that switch was bad, it would be bad for all motor functions. Unless one of those wires coming out of the switch is dedicated to the spin cycle.
Then I did the motor/speed control diagnostic. The only discrepency I found in my test was on the speed controller. It indicated that pins 1 and 4 should have infinit resistance, and if you had about 6ohms resistance that the speed controller was bad. I didn't have 6 ohms but I did have 2.004 ohms. What do you think? That might be enough to keep the spin cycle from going full power?
One of your sponsers has a 30 day retrun policy (even on electronic parts!!!!) Might just try and swap boards. Any other ideas?
