    I need to understand more. I don't know what you mean by the transmission or how to replace it then..

  • phil_ackers Apr 07, 2011

    This is the quality of information I was looking for...thank you very much. As it turns out it looks like it is the speed control that needs replacing. Thank you so much for your time and expertise on this.

  • phil_ackers Apr 07, 2011

    Great information and great detail. As it turns out, the speed control was at fault - motor was fine.

  • phil_ackers Apr 07, 2011

    Great level of detail and care went into the response. This service was well worth it!

There's no transmission in this machine if this is a front loader. Verify if the motor is getting power from the motor speed control. The motor should at least hum if it is good and getting power from the speed controller. It is likely that the drum is restricted or the tub bearing is worn and seizing resulting in the burning out of the motor. Remove the drive belt and turn the drive pulley manually on both directions to check it for restrictions.

Check power right at the motor winding terminals if the motor is not humming at all. The motor has likely burnt out again if its getting power but not humming at least. Check the wire harness connecting the motor to the speed controller if no power is getting to the motor winding terminals. The motor speed control is dead and needs to be replaced if the wire harness is good.

Let us know if you need further advice but indicate the exact model number of the machine. Please accept the solution should you find it helpful or informative. Accepting the solution will not stop you from communicating with the expert. You can still communicate with the expert should you need further advice regarding the issue stated herein.

Kenmore Oasis HE 27082 Displays "LD" error falsely


Hello,

Since that you let repairman do twice and didn't fixed the problem, I think your washer have still warranty from the vendor. and they repair it free.

Please verify the panel board of the machine maybe got grounded in the wiring or got wet. How ever you can do that in your own you should consult the repairman on that matter. however the two repairman did not resolve, so its better to bring the washer's to the vendor. im sure they can fix the issue or you will be enlightened by their valuable suggestion and solution.

may this help

My washer stops at the spin cycle. The LD code


“F21” (AKA SD) is a Long (SLOW) Drain error (LD). If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a “SUDS” error may also be displayed. This may be an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:


1.First, attempt to unplug the washer for at LEAST 30 minutes to reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). Sometimes this is all that is required to correct momentary glitches with the unit. If the error code returns, proceed to step 2.
2.Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
3.Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
4.Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.
To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump.

Your motor/clutch combo is on the way out. The motor is overheating and turning off. Cools down and restarts.
You need a new motor/clutch combo or a new washer. I do not recommend another GE.

We had the same problem with our new GE washer.......the repairman just left. It's the circuit board on the motor that failed, causing the motor to stop working. GE will replace it under warranty.

Washin machine not spinning


Your repairman is correct. The problem is a rusted spin bearing just under the tub. It is only in use during the spin cycle. Parts are about 50-70 bucks but it's a very difficult job and out of the range of the average do-it-yourselfer. Try to use the machine almost every day to prevent the bearing from freezing up. That way you can get a few more months use out of it before replacing it. If it does freeze up, try to turn the basket manually. It won't move much when its stopped because of the brake. Your repairman probably turned it during the spin cycle by defeating the lid switch.

Error code F11 and orthers


gailo, F11 is a serial communication error. Communication between the central control unit and the motor control unit cannot be sent correctly. Possible solutions: Check the harness between the two boards for loose connection. Driver motor, main board or motor control board may be bad. I have come across a number of these with loose connections and bad main boards. Put it into a test by pressing drain/spin on the left side. Then press the spin speed button on the right until no spin is lit. Then press the pre-wash button on the right 4 times until 00 comes up in the display. You are now in the automatic test mode. Let it do it's thing about 15 minutes and see if the error comes again. Catriver...post back.
