Hi, First the machine lost power, all lights went out - during spin cycle. I tested power point - o.k. - took agitator out, put it back and it worked, for a while. When it's on the spin cycle now, keeps power but just sits there. I turn it off, leave for a bit, try to spin and it does? It's like it's overheating and cutting out but I can't feel any heat. Can you help please? Diane

It does appear to be a machine problem. What I would do is, going backwards from the final spin, try each cycle to give some indication where the problem lies. For instance there would be no water heating on spin of course BUT both of the motors, main and drain, would be working - the former at its hardest/fastest. If OK through spin, step back to rinse- again no water heating (normally). If that is OK then its pointing more towards the heater element than anything else as both of the motors would have been isolated by the earlier tests. I would not suspect the control board at this point. Obviously if the spin trips it could be either of the motors OR some dodgy wiring showing itself during lots of movement. I would have the back off WITHOUT POWER(!) and check as much visually as possible.
Pump out time of 40 seconds sounds good. No ND error code and you spin up to 850RPM which is max for the machine. You have no standing water in the wash basket.... I'm scratching my head. Could you do a Spin Only cycle with that same wet wash load and set the SPIN for Max Extract. After you start the Spin Only cycle put the machine in Service Mode and watch the RPM range. This cycle sets the display to 12 minutes. Let’s see if the wash load remains wet and what max RPM is reached. ""Maybe the pump is not turning on during the spin cycle?"" You have no standing water in the wash basket correct? I feel the pump is turning on or you would have standing water in the wash basket and the pressure switch would have never indicated an empty condition (Low Level pressure switch contacts) to the Control Board. The Control Board would have stopped the wash cycle with a ND for no drain error code. The pump in the spin cycle will turn on a number of times see if you hear turn on in a Spin Only cycle I just ran a Spin Only light wash load with about 5 gallons of water in the wash basket. Timer went to 12 min.I toggled into Service Mode to watch wash basket RPM.At about the 5 Min mark (toggle in and out of Service Mode) the wash basket reached 850RPM then a few minutes later it stepped down to 830RPM to end of Spin Only Cycle.You don’t have a water valve stuck open or you would flood/over flow of the machine.Did you here the drain pump turn on several times during the Spin Only cycle?

There is a relay switch that is hooked to the timer and to valve that controls the water draining, this relay is worn out or just no getting the signal for the timer. Its a (timer) (relayswitch) or ( valve) Finding which one is easy, a cheap test light well do the trick. Start at the source of power and work your way to the valve when you stop getting power you are at the problem.
