Do the motor windings have the correct resistance? Which computer board did you change? What led you to the computer board being the problem? Did you run diagnostics. More info my brotha!

Its a stack machine, I was by myself, so I wasnt able to get the tech sheet, and I didnt bother trying to look it up.

 

From what I can remember, i was getting 5.6 between the windings and I thought that was in correct range.

 

I came to that conclusion from the weird behavior it was having, and the fact that I didnt have the tech manual, wasnt able to pull the dryer off to get to it, it was late, I was sick, I decided to take a wild guess.

 

Wasnt able to run diagnostics because the control would shut down.

 

I'm thinking some short in the control panel, bad wire, some other crazyness??

 

Thanks man, you always help me out!!

And this is why we have the archives...

 

Same model, same issue. Try to start it and

  • Door Locks
  • Relays Click
  • Display changes from Normal & many opetions to No Spin with all options dark
  • Unit powers down
  • Checking Error Codes shows an E23

 

I had never seen a FL washer react to a drain issue by powering down when trying to start so I was figuring I had an issue with the main board. I did, however, also have the E23 code so I checked the drain pump and it was shot. 120 supplied from the board to the pump was perfect.

 

But the idea that a bad drain pump wouldn't result in an error code and beeping was a little odd... and the idea that it would result in the display changing from Normal to No Spin and then powering down had my head spinning.

 

Looks as if I may be able to just do the pump and return the board. Fingers crossed!

Vets, yea man, had me a little stumped too, until I took the time to diagnose it right, and if you think about it, it makes total sense for the washer not start if its not going to be able to pump the water out, good luck to ya!!  Keep us posted!!
