Question about Kenmore 45087 Front Load Washer
Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
Try unplugging it first to reset the control board. The code means you have a communication error between the boards.You need to check :-
* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness
I have found the central control unit to be the problem most the time but it could be the motor control board to.
However, i would advise you to Call a Repairman as it is not possible to check whether CCU is at Fault or MCU. On the basis of the series of Inspection, you need to Order the Correct Part. These are Quite Expensive and Non Refundable Parts.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
