Kenmore 970-c40042-00 (Frigidaire frt load) rubber particles insi

Hya all

Having problems with my 8yr old Kenmore 970-c40042-00 (made by Frigidaire, similar models in the 43142 or so series).
It died on me and upon trobleshooting I found the speed control board defective (2 transistors blown) and replaced it. Works fine now.
While taking it apart I notices rubber particles inside like the belt was slipping or something. It's like a black dust.
It does not seem that the belt is incorrectly postioned (took it out and put it back in position over the right motror drive grooves), but I don't think it's normal to find rubber inside...I'm concerned that the belt is indeed slipping and this caused the control board problems.
Is there a way I can verify this theory? The belt does not have a tensioner or something and does not seem worn out.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion/advice.

Sounds like a sticky brake assy. This type of brake is very tricky and should be checked be a service technician

It's possible to do it yourself but not recommended because of the 200 lb. pressure spring. Hope the diagram will help.

Yes sir, a bad motor coupler could cause the machine not to spin. You did the right thing in checking out the lid switch and the pump first. It sounds as if the motor coupling is worn and may be slipping. I will attach a link to a video that may assist you. Hope this helps and best wishes.

Washer leaks water in the back of the washer but i cannot see any signs of the leak. this is a front load washer . model 970 ca0042 00,


I have a Kenmore front loading washer HE2 Plus.
Started leaking only 6 months old from the back over the spin motor.
I found a bolt had come out of the motor bracket causing the motor to crack a small hole in the plastic outer drum. I've been down for about a month waiting on the part and service. This is under warranty and we cant get any help any sooner from sears, not even a loaner.
Will not purchase Kenmore products again, 2nd front loader from Kenmore, 2nd problems.
