This could be a door lock issue. how ever the first thing to check is the drain pump for anykind of obstruction.there is a plastic coin trap in the boot that comes from the tub to the drain pump this could be clogged.

Hi,

Do you hear the lid switch click when you close the lid of the washer. The maximum times we have seen the reason of a washer not spinning is a bad lid switch. Please check out the bellow mentioned article how to go ahead and check it or get the part number to replace it.

Thanks

Asked about a problem with the spin cycle. Was told the problem was in the control board. Could not find it in parts Would that be the same as the dial for selecting the wash cycle


The dial is rarely broken. The cycle and the times for each part of the cycle are control by the main control board. If your spin cycle isn't working it might be the control board depending on what exactly the spin cycle is doing. The boards are usually kind of expensive (about $150).
You can take the chance and buy a board from an online place like:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/search.aspx?q=control%20board
(which gives returns if you have the wrong part).

First of all though, you should go to YouTube and type in "replacing a control board for a GE washer" and you will get plenty of troubleshooting and instructional videos to help determine which part actually is failing,and to get that repair done

Good luck

My kenmore elite calypso will not do final spin.flashes LD. I replace the pump as was suggested,still did not fix froblem


Hello Alex;


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.


After review of your washer components, there is a strong possibility that you have a bad electronic control board. You have two control boards, one is for the motor and one for the other functions.

25306051-b3edjqs4ufvbcqfi2v1m52kl-2-0.jpg

Washer electronic control board for Kenmore Elite Washer model #11021062001 Electronic control board 8571359 is the circuit board that manages the washer's functions, such as filling, washing, draining and spinning. It sends voltage to the drive motor and other electro-mechanical component.

Cost: $218.00

If you elect to replace the board make sure you ground yourself by rubbing your hands on something that is bare steel. Static electricity will knock a board out.

All appliances with electric control boards should have a surge protector. You can purchase a wall socket surge protector for $20-25.00. It is a good investment considering how expensive control boards are.

Rule of thumb; "If the unit is either 7 years old or the cost of repair is 1/3 or more of the original price, purchase a new unit.

Consider it purchasing a new unit, stripping your existing unit for parts to sell on e-bay. You will make a little money and save others expensive parts cost.

DOES NOT SPIN DRY EACH TIME


HI. This will, normally, occur if there are serious issues that concern the integrity of your control sector. This sector can be a timer module, or a control board, as well.I would advise to force a control reset, by shutting down the appropriate circuit breaker for five minutes. You may, also, unplug the unit, as well. This procedure will initiate a control reset, and may correct this issue that exist within the control sector.

Once the five minutes have passed, simply re-introduce power to the unit, and try a normal washing cycle. Observe the units actions during the spin attempt. If it fails to spin on time, this will confirm that the control sector(timer, or control board), is damaged. It will need to be replaced, in this case.

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.

Whirlpool Cabrio Washer Error message code F1


HELLO, Error code F1 indicates a control failure and most likely the machine control board will have to be replaced. Depending on when you purchased the machine, the board may be covered under extended component warranty.
I had the same F1 problem and they had to replace the control board and something relating to the balance. The tech told me this is a common problem.

Open the rear panel and look for a broken belt and does the motor spins. In case motor doesn't spin, check on its tags for 115/220V. Let me know with your results,for further assistance if will be needed. Good luck!
