Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes:

* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness
begin troubleshooting right at the motor. Why start there? Because the motor is one of the prime suspects and it's easy to check. Remove the back panel and unwind the belt from the drum pulley. Now turn the motor pulley (sans belt) by hand. If it doesn't turn smoothly and easily, you have a bad motor.

If the motor pulley turns smoothly and easily by hand, next step is to run the motor with the belt still removed from the motor pulley. If the motor seems to run fine that way, put the belt back on and run it again. If the motor won't run under load (with the belt on), then that's another sign that the motor is bad.

Suppose the motor turns easily and freely by hand but won't run either with or without the belt. This is a more subtle condition because we're probably dealing with a bad MCU or flakey wire harness somewhere between the motor and MCU, or between the MCU and the CCU.

One trick that often works at this point is to remove and reinsert all wire connections at the board and motor. This tends to clean the small amount of corrosion that will build up on the connections. After you do this put the machine into a service cycle (see the instructions in the tech sheet found inside the unit or you can ). Part of the service cycle is running the motor at certain set speeds which checks the tach.


If you've removed/reinserted the wire harnesses and still no joy, then usually the problem is the MCU.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a problem with a Kenmore washer, and that you're wondering how to remove the back or how to gain access to check


First of all, do not remove the back. Most leaks occur at the pump, here you'll find a link on how to access the pump to allow you to look for the leak as well as change the pump if need be.

The machine is leaking water, but everything seems to be intact underneath.


A leaking washer can have several causes. In order to be able to accurately determine where the leak may be coming from, you will need to remove the exterior washer case to get a full view of all the interior washer components. If this is a TOP LOADER, the following link explains how to perform this procedure and what to inspect for:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader


From the symptoms you have described, it sounds like you may have a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable, and if leaking, they must be replaced. The following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3794382-replacing_water_pump_whirlpool_top


Replacement parts can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com

The first three sites also included helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying any parts you may need. The average price for a pump is about $35.

What does the F22 mean?


"F22" is a door latch error code. This is an indication of a failed door latch mechanism, failed Central Control Unit (CCU), or interconnecting problem between the two. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r1976388-f22_error_code_whirlpool_duet_kenmore


For more in depth troubleshooting tips refer to your tech sheet located inside the washer behind the lower toe panel. You will need to locate and remove the screws under the bottom front edge of the toe panel. Once removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. If the tech sheet isn't located directly behind the panel, it will be affixed to one of the interior cabinet walls. The tech sheet includes all error codes, test points, diagnostic procedures and helpful illustrations to assist in troubleshooting and repair of your washer.

In most cases, the source of the leak on a FRONT LOADER is the door bellow (gray rubber seal). If the bellow is ripped or torn it must be replaced. The following link explains how:
