While back ago my wife and daughter said they were having problems getting the washer to program at the start of a wash (lights flickering, some controls not working) and also having issues with the washer during a wash cycle (washer stopping in the middle of cycles, not draining). But now that problem has somewhat disappeared. Now the only problem I see with washer now, it the spin cycle - guestimated at about 1 bazillion RPMs no matter on what the spin cycle is set on. Which I didn’t think was much of an issue....faster the better, less work for the dryer in the long run? However I don’t think the wife appreciated the state that her North face jacket came out of a finished load last night. So I guess I better fix it.
I am able to get the washer into the diagnostic mode, F70 error. But I don’t have any documentation on exactly how to test the washer in the diagnostic mode nor do I claim to be an appliance guru and properly use the diagnostic mode. I checked the drum area for any foreign objects that may have flown out during takeoff - didn’t see any. I did check and reseat all the connections going into the control board (didn’t see anything loose), but that is far as I have gone. Any ideas would be much appreciated, I think a new board is in the $ 300.00 range and I'll be happy to replace - but just want to make sure...$ 300.00 could buy a lot of beer…or maybe another North face jacket.
