Question about Washing Machines
When the wash cycle is finished the Stain vanish light flashes and the end time light flashes (at the top i.e. the 90 minute mark).
It appears that the spin cycle is not working correctly. When the washer is set just to spin the drum rotates in both directions but not at a spin speed.
I have checked the filter.
Is this a program board problem or something else? is it worth calling an engineer or do I need to buy a new washing machine?
It appears your timer/controller board 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.
