Hi,

This means that your motor control board is actually bad. On most Models, motor control board is located in the back bottom of the unit. You have to pull the washer out and take the back panel off it will be located on the base of the unit.


Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

This is usually the motor. It could be that the belt that rotates the tub has slipped off (if your model uses a belt). If you have access to that, you could check. If that is the problem, you might be able to replace the belt for a temporary fix, but it's usually a bigger mechanical problem that causes the belt to slip in the first place.

ATF6000ES frigidaire will not spin all the time only sometimes


Mine would only spin on the fast final cycle. Wouldn't spin during any of the agitate cycles. I replaced the motor, the speed controller and the main control unit. Nothing fixed the problem. Btw, the door lock worked properly. Had to replace the washer. Sorry, I know this doesn't help.

Wfc7500vw spins but not at high speed on final spin


This is a common problem with the Whirlpool front load machine. The motor control board goes out but the new ones have been redesigned. You will need to replace the control board. Here is a link to the control board you need.

Slow spin


see this causes and fix it. God bless you

Belt
The belt may have come off or broke. If you hear the motor running but nothings moving the problem is likely the belt. This is easy to check and replace.

Door Switch
This can cause the washer to not agitate or go into the spin cycle. You will need to remove the door switch to check it. You will perform an ohm reading on the bottom terminals. The reading varies from manufacturers most Frigidaires is around 1500 ohms others like the whirlpool duet is checked at the main control board with the door closed should be around zero ohms. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading.

Main Control Module / CCU
The main control unit is the circuit board located behind the console. If the door switch tests good the main control is usually the problem. Check all connections for a goood tight fit. You will need to refer to the tech sheet or service manual to check this further. The main control is easy to replace.

Motor Control Module

The motor Control Module is located inside the cabinet down near the motor. This recieves the signals from the main control module then relays this information to the motor. Check all connections sometimes a communcation problem is just a loose connection. The Motor Control Module is easy to replace. To check this further you will need to refer to your tech sheet or service manual.

I've only seen one of these belts break in my 7 years of fixing Neptune's. I have replaced dozens of motor/ motor control board kits. Maytag upgraded the washer motors about 5 years ago, if yours is older it's probably got the older style motor. If that's the case you need to verify that the motor control board is getting power from the main control board, if it is, then you need to replace both the motor and motor control board (it comes as a kit). If it isn't you need to put 120 volts to the motor control board and see if the motor spins at 50 rpm (normal agitate speed), if it does, you just need the main control board, if it still doesn't run you need the main board and the motor/ motor control kit. If it has the newer motor, you would also need to test and replace the motor and/ or the motor control board separetly.

Maytag washer issues


Could be just about anything. It's all designed to prevent it from spinning if there is a problem. If the motor is still turning, but never gets up to spin speed, check the out of balance circuit. There are two cabinet strike switches and an inertial unbalance switch. Or check the door latch assembly, it's possible for the door to lock enough to turn the 'door lock' light on, but not move far enough to actuate the 'spin enable' switch. Maytag has upgraded the motor/ motor control board for the older Neptunes. If the motor is not running at all, check that the main control board is sending power to the motor control board. If it is you need the motor/ motor control kit (just one part #) If the main board is not sending power to the motor control board, you need a main control board, but you still need to test the motor control board. Take a test cord and put 120 volts to the motor control board, the motor should start turning at 50 rpm (normal agitate speed) if it doesn't you would need the motor/ motor control kit as well.
