Normally my washer i put on heavy and its on 47 min. I put it on heavy now and it says 1 hr 48 min and it will spin but no water comes out for 5 minutes then the time goes from 1:48 to 3 minutes left

Hi David Simpkins - Based on the symptoms you are describing, the washer may be experiencing a communication issue with the control board or faulty wiring. You may reprogram the washer by disconnecting the power to the unit up to two minutes by flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. If issue persists, I would recommend contacting a professional to proceed further.

I just replaced the cold water fill valve in my GWL11 and turned on the machine. All worked GREAT except the hot was cold and vice versa. Ooops, I had the hoses connected backwards, so I powered off t

a hose swap will not kill the board. But unplugging the unit with the machine turned on might kill the board... moving the power plug, or circuit breaker with the board 'alive' /turned on.. can cause damage.

My washer goes into spin cycle byitself and when washing,if u r in spin cycle it sets for 14 mins thats good 4 mins into spin all knob lights start flashing and the screen says uL

One thing to understand is that this is a difficult problem to pin down and may end up requiring the control board to be replaced.

The UL or unbalanced load error is displayed when the control board senses an out of balanced load.

You don't indicate if the washer is actually out of balanced or not when the code appears but the description of banging and shaking would indicate it is out of balanced.

If the washer consistently bangs and shakes in spin then I's suggest you remove the spin basket and check under it for obstructions that might prevent the washer from spinning smoothly.

This sounds like a bad main control board. Try unplugging it for 10 minutes then replug an try again. If you get the same results replace the main controller.

My fridaire front load washer will not spin at high speed

HI. Your unit is equipped with a Motor Speed Control Board. This board regulates the spin speed, with the help of a tachometer, which, is located and mounted on the motor. When this Control board is experiencing issues, the spin will not preform at optimal performance. I recommend to replace this Motor Control Board asap. Once replaced, the unit will spin properly.

Washer fills with water and thats it

Possible a bad motor control board. Depending on the age of the washer, you may need to replace the motor control board and the motor as a kit. Also be sure to test that the motor control board is getting power, I've seen cases of the motor/ motor control failing and taking out the main control also. The tech sheet is in the console and should walk you through the steps.
