The washer goes through the cycles, agitates, speeds up, slows down, fills, empties. Then it gets hung up in a pre final spin drain cycle. The pump will run and run, now the pump doesn't sound good. I assume that's from pumping dry for a long time. If I turn the knob slightly, it will start the next cycle and continue happily with the remainder of the wash. I thought that it was the timer, so I replaced that. It still does the same thing with a new timer. The new timer also allows a drain and fill occur at the same time on a delicate cycle. I have ordered a new pump to take care of that dry pump noise. What am I missing?
ANSWER Hi. Yes make sure the drain pump part # 137108000 is not clogged or broken. If you do not see the door lock light during this pause then the door latch part # 131763202 is not fully closed and needs replaced. It will be advantageous to find the supplied tech sheet inside the cabinet to aid you in the diagnosis. It allows you to put the unit in a diagnostic mode which brings up fault codes and tells you which circuit needs assistance. Use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist you in your diagnostics. Thank You.
