Hello,

I recently got the Lr (locked rotor) code and my machine quits with 2 minutes to go when running the spincycle. It also is completley out of balance when running.

Tests I have done:

Membrane test - everybutton functioned fine

 

Quick Spin test - first test pushing the right buttons seemed to work but no speeds were shown. I have done this test a few more times and it does not always let me do the test( not sure if I have to lock and unlock the door each time) While I did access this test again it seemed to work but only after pushing the off button and nothing was lit up on the display I would have assumed it should have turned everything off. I had to physicaly unplug the cord. I had let run for over 5 minutes.

 

Motor control board output test - unplugged pwoer cord, unplugged JP4,  Plugged power back in (door was locked) entered service mode(delicates heavy soil) pressed rinse key it imediatly started to rotate slowy,

pressing stain cycle did nothing. According to the trouble shooting guide, it should start rotating when I press stain cycle.

 

Door lock tests where fine.

 

I am a little confused if it could be the conrtol board up top or a new motor and board for the motor could be the problem.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you Doug

 


I meant to add that it is unbalanced when clothes are in the machine I thought that could be do to the motor not getting up to speed

Bearings sound fine, there is no play in wheel at all, it spins freely and smooth with the belt off.

thanks for the reply.
