Question about Kenmore 43142 Front Load Washer
In the spin cycle, my washer was draining, but was apparently not spinning however it was making a loud growling noise as if something was stuck. I pulled the back off the machine and the belt looks fine and the motor appears to turn freely as it should. However a loud almost grinding noise is coming from the Spin Control Board Assy. My assuption is that I need to replace this part. Everything else looks fine. What is your opinion?
Control boards don't growl, the fry out and die. Sounds like a drive train problem to me. If it's a front load machine, the spindle/bearing assy. has gone to washer heaven. If it's a top load machine... could be the transmission, brake/clutch assy. or the tub bearings. In either case, if it's less than 5 years old, the drive system will be warrantied through the manufacturer. If you could provide a make and model number, I could narrow this down to a fine point.
