Probably a motor speed controller, this is pretty involved to test. Inside your washer is a wiring schematic-tech sheet. This is usually in a plastic bag on the side of one of the walls. Remove the front lower access panel, and see if you can find it. If it is not on the walls, remove the top cover and check from above. Read the steps to test the motor and speed control. You will need an electical tester and will need to know how to use it. If you able to use the tech sheet to find the problem, then follow the steps carefully. Call an appliance technician if this is more than you want to attempt. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

    Here is a link to the part at repair clinic. Double check with them to make sure this is the right part number. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail... As you can see the part is very expensive, so again make sure this is the problem before your replace the part. When you are done replacing the part or replacing the washer I would recommend that you install a wall mounted 2000 joule or higher surge protecter for you washer. You can buy these at Lowes for about 19.00. If you decide to replace the washer, my strongest recommendation is for the Whirlpool Super capacity front load washer and dryer. Not the sport model. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

My front load washer do not spin


Take the power plug off the wall. Be prepared for a lot of water before attempting the following. It doesn't spin because the unit is not draining water. It will not spin with water in it - must drain first. Check drain hose for kink,check exit pipe for blockage. Remove the front access panel, bottom front; if you find a pipe there with a cap -this is for draining water. Could be your "coin trap assembly" is blocked, therefore not allowing all the water to pump out. Remove the clamp that connects the trap assembly to the pump and clean it out. If helped, pl say so.

Water doesn't drain


you could have a bad drain pump.
have you checked the hoses that come from the bottom of the tub to the drain pump for anything that might be stuck in there,also check the hose that comes off the drain pump to the wall and look for an obstruction.

Frigidaire front load washer won't drain or spin


This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

My Bosch 2060 Front end loader will not drain/spin


Get the pennies or dimes out of the accordian style black hose at the bottom of the washer. You will need to lay the washer against something so you can get in from underneath. Take a plyers and squeeze the medal clamp so the hose can slip off. I found 3 dimes that acted like washers. The machine will drain.

Water drains, but washer does not spin


try opening the filter which located mostly in the lower area of the front side. An acumilation of dirt and calc will inhibit the complete drain of water. After opening and cleaning the filter, put it back in. Once it will drain completly, it will start spinning. Hope I assist you with the problem.
