Asking for instructions for putting this unit into diagnostic mode.   Found a wiring tech sheet & parts diagram, not much else.    Complaint is no spin.

Click HERE for the service manual.  I'm not 100% sure that's the right one, but I think so.  I don't believe these washers have a diagnostic mode.  If the complaint is no spin check the door lock first, that's the most common cause.  If not the door lock you're looking at motor, timer or motor control, or a combination of those three.

This is an old skool front loader with a mechanical timer instead of a microprocessor board == no diagnostic mode.  

 

The tech sheet has a confusing procedure for checking the voltages to the motor and inverter (aka., speed control board).  

 

I've found the strip charts on the tech sheet to be very helpful in troubleshooting these units.  Assuming you are getting drum rotation during fill and wash, then look at the strip chart for spin. I talk you through it here:  http://screencast.com/t/bMGNe5QCfL

step one, place machine in the spin cycle,wait 2 minutes(wether it spins or not)

now unplug the washer and try to open the door

if the door opens instantly, you need a door lock

Just now looking at this.   Thanks a saki bunch.    I know the plug/door trick BrntToast.   I posted before I made my call hoping to find some feed back before I left the house.  Was traveling by 7AM.     Had a double call on this stop at my dentist's office.   Refrigerator & stacked washer.    Found the washer with water in it so I did the plug-door dance 1st.  Then dove down to the pump, found gown string wrapped around coin catcher & pump.     After cleaning pump, hoses, & catcher.  Unit went thru its cycle with wax motor, drain pump motor & machine motor all talking like they are old & ready to fail.  Probably will run another 5 years.   

 

Is there a way I can save that screen cast to review it again & again to further my education Samurai.   Thanks again everybody.
