OL code with washer not filled with clothes at all.

 

Tub rotates freely.

 

Narrowed down to RPS or Main computer.

 

How the hell do you actually test RPS??

 

Manual says to install new RPS and if that doesnt work, install computer, I dont like that!!

 

I noticed a small crack on the inner plastic section of the stator, doesnt seem like it would have much to do with it, but could this have an effect??

 

Am I way off on my diagnosis of it being the RPS or Computer?

 

I checked harness, its good to go.

 

Anyone??

 

Thanks!!!

does the basket slide up and down the shaft freely.  If the basket does not float up when it fills with water it will give the ol code

I was trying to pull it up and down, but i thought the newer models no longer float? This model has an actual agitator, and not just that plate agitator thingy. Dors that make a difference?
I feel like the drive system is good.

This one isn't one of the NEWER models, (from the parts breakdown it appears to be a 2007 model), it has the floating tub.

 

If you can't lift it up then that is most likely your problem.  They make this style with the full agitator like you have and with just the wash plate.

Okay, i was wondering that.
So, do you have to change the tub? Or what would solve the problem?
Thanks!

Change the complete tub that includes new shaft/seal/bearings or purchase a bearing install tool and remove the old shaft/seal and bearings from the tub and install the new shaft/seal/bearing kit.

 

You may not need to replace the shaft/bearings and seal if you can get the basket out and clean up the shaft but I think I recall some where around the forums here that the original shafts had a problem with corrosion and gumming up and they may be making the new shafts out of something better that doesn't start corroding and gumming up.

 

Using the wrong/non-He detergent and using too much detergent can cause this shaft gumming up and basket not floating correctly problem.

Hey there,

 

I just wanted to absolutely make sure that this is the floating tub design, and that the tub i need is the "inner" tub only??

I have done many of these with the stuck tubs and have not had to change the shaft or tub assy yet. I have cleaned the shaft on every one I have done and haven't had any call backs. I would try to clean it before you pull the trigger on the big parts. Would save the customer a bunch of money. Worth a shot anyway.

Kicks major Samsung booty first, asks diagnostic questions later.

Thanks for the suggestion - I will keep that in mind next time.

 

He's trying to actually get it covered by his home insurance, I guess he had a fire and had a company come remove the washer, that his insurance company provided, and when they brought it back it didn't work anymore, that's what he's telling me and them at least.

 

So if they approve it, I will just do the whole thing, because my luck, just cleaning the shaft wont work! lol.

 

But thank you, I haven't worked on many these units, and any tips is greatly appreciated!!

that makes sense.  Most of the ones i run into are washers that were in storage or new homeowners that bought a house that sat empty for a while.  Last one i had was a business person who was away for months at a time
