Question about Washing Machines
This machine will not work properly through a wash cycle, namely the spin cycle. Yesterday, it got stuck at 11 minutes to go for around 30 minutes. I believe there is an electronic component that needs replacing but am not that technically minded. It also comes up with the UE error code which means clothes collected on one side or machine on uneven floor, but has not been either case when I've checked. Actually ran the quick wash cycle empty and it still came up with the UE code. The drive belt is in perfect order and the pump is new. The machine is only about 19 mths old and I've been loading it according the the manual guidelines since new. Please help, I can't afford another machine or a technician and would prefer to attempt to fix it myself.
Family of 5 needing drier clothes. Thank you in anticipation.
It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
