Question about Washing Machines
Hi Todd,Just read your posting.The fault you have is called OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH FAULT.Now the switch is located under the control module which in turn is located under the top panel.To access the control module remove the 2 screws at the back of the machine up top.Once the screws are removed lift the top panel away from the machine gently as the display wiring is still attached.You will now see the gray control module.You should also see a screw holding the control module to the frame,remove it and look under the gray board to the right.You should see a switch with 2 wires attached .Have you or can you borrow an electrical test meter to test the switch for conductivity on the terminals with the wires attached?If there is any corrosion on the switch terminals or the little button does not click positivity when pushed I think the switch will be faulty.You must have conductivity between the 2 wires.Make sure the power is off at the wall before you remove the top panel.If the switch is good then the fault could be you control module.Hope this helps and please reply on how you got on or for further help.Looking forward to your reply.
