Question about Washing Machines
The drain pump stops working on the last spin cycle which stops the complete cycle progress. ie. tub full of water & no last spin.
Found Code 37 indicating a pump problem due to overtemp. Replaced the pump and problem solved. However, checked the code again periodically over the next 4 days and it didn't go away or reset. Should these codes reset or should I clear it? How would I clear it? Machine was working fine, but now has returned back to the original problem. Pump Coil is hot to touch when it stops operating and approx 36ohms. Replaced with the original pump which was cold and 25ohms and the machine worked again(code still present). Pump wire connections are all good(white, brown & green). Not sure if the pump motor stops itself with a built in switch or the "controller" senses an excessive amp draw and cuts the power to the pump? Where to from here?
Ultimatly replaced the new pump with a "genuine" pump from F&P which fixed the problem permenantly. Interesting is that all the id tag details of the pump manufacturer were exactly the same on both "new" pumps. The only noticable difference was the impleller design which could have possibly been overloading the "generic" pump, causing it to cut out. One final note; it takes eight complete load cycles to be completed after a fault code has been repaired before the code resets.
