Mother board scans

Our washer is less than a year old....we have had it serviced 4 times already and the mother board replaced 3 times....the washer will for a couple of minutes then numbers start scanning up and down and all over the place..we do not get codes....just a washer that does not seem to know what to will go into spin, stop, start...whatever its little brain seems to want to do at the moment...these problems started when the washer started itself up twice in the middle of the night....we had to unplug it....bizarrre....Sears seems happy to keep sending people out to replace the mother board ...however it is obvious the problem may be electrical...we have installed a dedicated surge protector...we had our electrical checked...we are not the problem...the last tech said he doesn't want to come back here again....he is sick of our is still under warranty...we will extend the warranty so Sears can send out a tech till the cows come home if they far these visits have probably cost Sears the cost of the washer and more...time for Sears to replace it......we are fed up ...

Just called Sears to talk to a technician just about if it can just spin instead of rinsing and spinning. Told me it can't . Been wanting to know for a year now how i can just spin some hand washables without taking 20 minutes of re rinsing draining and then spinning. She knew nothing . Told me it can't be done . had to find out myself. Just press rinse/drain spin and then press 2nd rinse after that. They are of no help!!

Machine won't rinse

Well, you could simply set it to wash again without detergent, if you haven't already thought of that.

Modern machines like yours operate from a computer like mother board that may have corroded the link to make the machine rinse only. Try that and see if that works, assuming your machine has that option on the selections. If your machine is less than two years old it should be under guarantee, but sometimes a repair outlet can convince the makers to pay for the repair or replace the unit for a new one. If it's made in China, it may become faulty within two years. I have personal experience with that problem. In the past 4 years, I've had 3 new machines, all made in China. I didn't have to pay for a new one or for repairs, probably because I threatened them with court action.

F1 appears after you press the start button

The F1 error code on this washer indicates a Primary Control Board failure.

It is likely that the machine control board will need to be replaced to correct this problem.

The part number for the machine control board is undetermineable because you have not provided me with the exact model # of your washer.

The procedure for replacing the machine control board is provided HERE


NOTE: Be sure to unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components.

There is a slight possibility that a problem with the pressure switch hose could be causing this problem.

A pinched or twisted air hose can cause this fault code.

When you open the console, check the air hose connected to the pressure switch on the machine control board.

If it is pinched or crimped, I recommend rerouting the hose to resolve this problem.

This may fix your problem without replacing the control board.

NOTE: You may want to check for this condition before ordering the control board. Most electronic control boards cannot be returned for a refund or credit.

If you find no apparent problems with the air hose on the pressure switch, then replacing the machine control board on this washer should correct your problem. There is a risk involved in replacing this part yourself.

As noted above, you could have a problem with the air pressure hose that is not apparent upon your initial inspection. A service technician would normally need to properly and thoroughly diagnose this problem before replacing the control board.

Frequent interruptions of washer

This is most likely the brushes on the motor. Intermittently failing due to wear and tear. I *could* be the motor but the brushes are very cheap in comparison.

On most washers the brushes are < £20. Time to fit is less than 0.5 hours.

You have three options

1/ If you are or know someone who is very technical and confident - once you have the right parts should be able to install them. (Unlplug the unit before touching!!!)

2/ If you have a service contract use it, they should provide parts and fix.
3/ A service engineer is your last option - say £90 callout + parts. (On certain washer units parts are free up to five years old - but you have to pay the call out fee)

Please dont forget to rate me, thanks!!
