Yes you need a new control board. The fact that the motor and impeller was damaged and loosened. You should try taking your Washer in for maintenance check or call the repair man.

The Lr reading comes on after it fills with water. Had a service man put in a new motor. Still the Lr comes on. Washer only washes about 4 loads a week.

This could bew a Control Board issue or a Motor Control board issue. You really need both known good parts to nail down fore sure..... but I would try the Control Board first. The FAV6800A and FAV9800A Motor is under warranty for 10 years. Did you go through Maytag for the repair service call?

I have three machines in the family and do all my own repairs. From my limited experience the Motor is rock solid and I would question why the repair service replaced it. Did he do any diag's on the Motor....i.e. winding resiatance, place the machine in a test mode page 15 and 16 of the Service Manual. The Control Board and Motor Controller will be out of warranty. I buy them for pennies on the dollar from previous owners that part the machine out on ebay.........Rich


You will need the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

Washer does not turn off when selector reads off

Although these are great machines, they have had their share of problems. I say that your problem is the control board. You will need a little more info. There is a series or Rev number close to the model number. If you unit is prior 88 series you will need the conversion kit. It runs around $290.00 and comes with a new motor and the control board . If it's not prior 88 series you will only need a motor control assembly that runs around $240.00.(Printed circute) It is only the control where the prior 88 series comes with the control and motor.
With the parts costing so much, although I work on these all the time. I suggest that you get a repair technician to come out and diagnose the unit. I feel sure this is the problem but there is a chance that it could be something really simple like a crossed wire or a small switch. Before I could tell you to spend this much money, I would rather you get someone there to put their hands on it first.
I know this didn't really help but maybe it will shed a little light on whats going on. Like I stated, these are real good machines. They just had a few problems. This is why they have the conversion kits for it. They figured out the problem and now offer a better part than what came on the first models. Have a great day and good luck.

Washer won't spin.

Fortunately boards for most washers are cheap. Rebuilt board= $35 to 100: look online.
But your washer probably doesn't have a bad board. It sounds more like a motor. Does the mother-in-law like to overload the washer so she can get out of your house faster? If your motor overheats there is a bimetal switch that must cool off before it will run again -kinda sounds like your problem.

My front loader washing machine will not spin or start a load. I turn it on and it wants to start but nothing happens. I put a blanket in the washing machine last night and it was very heavy and the cycle...

In the back of your washer their should be a
manual behind the top cover. this manual will show you how to test the motor.
if the motor does not work. your motor control board is faulty. if you look closly at the board , you will see a burnt componet, that means you will need a upgraded board and unfortunely you will need in new motor to go with it.
it cost me around $230. has been working for 2 years with no other problems.
I found the parts on line. if you need help to find it , let me know, and when i get back home next week i will send it to you.
Good luck.

Kenmore Elite HE5t Washer Error Code F11

F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears. Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right. Press this button until no-spin lights. Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display. Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08. If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

circut board mounted on timer assy is the problem, tip the console on its back to verify and put in agitate mode, will work in lay back position, then will not work in normal position. unplug board two times and should start working, it gets scrambled just like a computer, because its a computer. must be a relay on the board, this is what happened to me, and is still working 10 loads later, sounded like a motor.
