We have a model FTF2140FS1 front load washer that will not spin. After reading all the post I took off the drain hose and emptied the loose change out. Put the machine back together and guess what, still wont spin. when it come to the spin cycle it pumps out water and the "no spin" light comes on. I am guessing it is either the door switch, pump, or control board. Is these any test I can run? This is really a pain especially with 3 kids. Thanks

are there any Error Codes (flashing lights) ?

To recall an error code,
• Wake the machine by pressing any button
• Wait 5 seconds
• Press and hold the Start and Pause/Cancel buttons simultaneously
• All LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs.
The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes

The "no spin light"? Is this by chance on the user interface where you select the spin speed?
is" no spin selected"
try to change it and try agian

"no spin" was not selected. When I recalled the error cod it beeped 3 times with all the cycle lights flashing and the start light. then it beeped and flashed 1 more time with out the start light.

that would be 43, the same as in Samurai's video ..
The Tech Sheets says Control Board problem, but others have reported that any 4x code was a bad Door Lock Assembly

OK replaced door lock....did not fix it. Replaced control board (which is what the code said was wrong) and that did not work. Any other ideas? I am getting frustrated and tired of spending Sunday afternoon and $25 at the Laundromat.

Wait, sumpin' ain't raht, let's back up here...

We've been focusing on the no-spin complaint. Does the drum tumble? Does the drum move at all? Some other possibilities at this pernt:

- something mis-wired or a harness not seated all the way, re-check all your wiring at both the door latch assy and the motor control board
- broken belt
- bad motor

when I replaced the door lock I got it to spin once, same with the control board. Put original control board and door lock switch back in, went thru 1 drain and spin cycle..everything fine. put fresh load in and did normal wash.....went thru wash and rinse cycle fine BUT when it came to final spin...no go it tumbled twice, it pumped but will not spin. I tried going back to the drain and spin cycle again and it tumbled a couple of times, pumped out the water then stopped with the no spin light on (and I did not have no spin selected) If it were up to me and I could afford it I would take this thing out back and see how high I could get it to launch, but I paid over $1000 for the set less than 2 years ago.

Which control did you change? it sounds like an issue with the motor controller or connectors to motor (check harnesses at board and to motor connector)

That is the control I replaced. I checked all wiring and found no problems, checked the connections and they are all seated properly.

Do you have the techsheet from inside of the unit ? - look at the diagram on it and test the connection to the tach in the motor. Also try for 120 volt feed into board - those units often end up having connection issues at the board and the harness into the motor

Are these sheets that come when you buy the unit? Because I looked inside and can not find any sheets.
