I just cleared the error codes & am running a 38 minute speed wash to see how it works out.
The washer is sitting on the stand that you can buy with the machine. That is sitting on my concrete floor in the laundry room. It definatly vibrates alot at 999rpm & always has for the last 6+ years I have owned the machine.
The last time the service tech was out, he left a new circuit board - he thought he had to use it, then he didnt use it. I tried to replace it today as a troubleshooting step.
Unfortunately when I had it all plugged back in, the LCD/LED screen did not light up at all. It did beep (when buttons were pressed) & was powered but I was unable to try the replacement board. I swapped the original board back in & it was working properly.
Again, the spin cycle works fine during the test modes (both spin tests). Its just during a cycle it doesnt spin at speed (strange).
The other thing I wanted to mention, is the machine has a 'trap' that unscrews on the front of the unit (when you take some of the metal panel off). Typically I clean it out every few months as my kids like to keep coins & other small objects that go in the laundry, get trapped in the trap & I usually can tell because my laundry isnt dry (due to it being clogged).
I have noticed that after a load, the trap, while it doesnt have anything in it that would cause it to hold water, is full of water. Almost like its not draining out.
I wonder what thats about?
