Question about Washing Machines
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. This is what the service manual says for it runs for 5 seconds and shuts off:
Runs For Five Seconds Then Shuts OFF:
Suspect a communication problem between
motor, the motor control board and the machine
control board. Check the motor and
motor control system by removing the JP4
connector on the motor control board. Set
the timer dial into the delay cycle and then
press the push to start switch. If the motor
operates and the washer goes into a 50 rpm
tumble, then the source of the problem is the
RD 30 wire leading from the motor control to
the P4(2)/RD30 connector on the machine
control board. When the machine control
tells the motor control to run the motor, it
monitors the red wire to determine if the motor
is actually running. If the board does not
see a return signal, the washer will shut down.
If RD30 wire is making contact, then suspect
possible problems with timer input circuits.
(See the following section on Machine Operation
Does Not Match Cycle Description):
As far as this statement about your initial symptom:
Prior to this it would go through the wash cycle but would not spin.
This seems to lead to a door switch interlock problem and ties into the runs for a few seconds and shuts off symptom.
Are you seeing a "door locked" light on the control panel? If not then the door switch is most likely bad.
Thanks for using FixYa.
