Put it in spin, door locks, drain pump runs, no spin. Door unlocks sometimes, sometimes dont.

 

Seems like a motor/computer to me??

 

I have no clue what I was doing, so i made up my typical B'S.

 

Is this a door lock?

 

Computer?

 

Motor?

 

Wire harness??

 

I feel like curling up and dying.

First, let's try to recall any faults codes that might point to a control or motor control problem.  To access test program:

 

1)  Rotate cycle selector knob to Off position.

 

2)  To enter test program, push and hold Menu and Select buttons at the same time, then rotate cycle selector knob CCW to Permanent Press Cold position.  Hold Menu and Select buttons until P1:Errors shows in display.

 

3)  To select test, push Menu button to scroll through tests until desired test shows in display (P1 - P17).  The Start/Pause light will flash.

 

4)  Select test P1 for fault recall and push the Start/Pause button while it is flashing.  The display will show fault code and when fault occurred on in the last 8 washes.

      Control module faults Er:01-24.  Motor control faults dr:01-18.

 

5)  To end test, push Spin selection button.

 

6)  To exit test program, rotate cycle selector knob to Off.

 

Tone, record any and all faults codes and report back.  Will advise.

Ok, i'm not sure if i'll be going back, but if I do I will run the test.

 

I've had times were the tech sheets say its the main board, I change the board and still have problems, so can you even trust the diagnostics??

 

I'll let you know what I find.
