problem in washing cycle. fast spin for few seconds and cut off .... I have same machine, it starts up fills half way with water then stops :'.
We are talking about FAV6800A or FAV9800A TL correct? If so you need these links the Service Manual and parts look up; here is the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference. If your machine completes the wash cycle with no error code such as ND (No Drain) and there is no visible water in the bottom of the wash basket when you remove your wash load then I would do this test. Take the next wet wash load that is dripping wet and lets do a Quick Spin Test in Service Mode.During this test test the FAV6800A LED display model will step thru the RPM (revolutions per minute) or goal is to ensure the machine will spin the wash basket up through all Spin Cycle RPM ranges.Any RPM range above 99RPM’s will be shown with a (.) dot after the two numbers displayed i.e. 350RPM will show as 35. 550RPM will shoe 55. And so on. I’m and owner of the FAV6800A and I’m not sure what the LCD display of the FAV9800A will display. Enter into Service Mode; Page 14 of the Service Manual; below I have cut and paste the instructions.
Enter / Exit Service Mode To enter Service Mode press the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys (simultaneously) for three seconds or until the control beeps. Now go to page 14 and enter this front panel key pad press to start a Quick Spin Test and see if the machine with that wet clothes load will spin the wash basket to 850RPM. Quick Spin Test While in Service Mode, press the Hand Wash key to start a Quick Spin Test. Quick Spin test steps are as follows: 1) Lock the lid. 2) Spin to index speed 90 rpm and hold for 60 seconds. Pump drains machine. 3) Spin to index speed 150 rpm and hold for 6 seconds. 4) Spin to index speed 350 rpm and hold for 6 seconds. 5) Spin to index speed 550 rpm and hold for 6 seconds. 6) Spin to index speed 700 rpm and hold for 6 seconds. 7) Spin to index speed 850 rpm and hold for 6 seconds. Pump out. 8) Coast down to 0 rpm chimes 3 times. Hit the Off button to get out of service mode. If the machine spins the wash basket to 850 RPM then we need to start looking further.What are your results? You can check the flow rate of the drain system by again entering Service Mode and turn the Drain Pump on in service mode.I would (hand fill) place 5 gallons of water in the machine and turn on the drain pump see page 16 for Board Output Test. Enter Service Mode and press the Delicates key.You are now in Board Output Test now press the Presoak key and the Drain Pump will turn on.If your machine pumps out the 5 gallons of water in 60 seconds or less I would say your Sump Cap, drain line connection from Sump Cap to input to the Drain Pump, Drain Pump and discharge line are all working as designed.If the Machine takes greater then 60 seconds to dump the water then you need to start troubleshooting for a drain line restriction or Drain Pump issue…...Rich
I have a problem with my MW512AU. Sometimes it drains after wash cycle, but sometimes it sticks when it goes to spin, doesn't get up to speed, water comes on for about 10 seconds and shuts off, and it tries to spin again. If I hit the wash progress switch it goes directly to final spin and works ok. I then have to run a 2nd wash cycle to rinse the clothes. I also noticed a buzzing sound when I turn on the power point, which lasts about 3 seconds before stopping. It will come back on every 3-4 minutes for 30 seconds. This is with the machine power switch off. It powers on normally.
Turn timer to rinse cycle. let fill up and agitate. when it stops
agitating it should pause then start to pump water out. After about 2
minutes it should pause for 3-5 seconds then start again and spin. If
it starts the first time and never stops it will just continue to pump
but no spin. The 3-5 second pause allows the transmission to shift to
spin. If it does not do this the problem is your timer. You may need to
do this a few times to verify the problem.
If that is not the problem it is likely that you need a new clutch. You will need a technician to install a new clutch for you
Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......
Starts fine then stalls, I would check the belt,gear case and also for a seized pump bearing. Pull the machine out and remove the access panel with a 5/16 socket and put it into spin, try to watch as you start the cycle. Then if you don't see any problems tilt the machine back and examine the belt for wear, glazing, cracks and rotate the belt to find any frozen items, gear case and pump.
