I continue to get a E3 alarm on the washer during a cycle... I tore the machine apart cleaned it. (found pennes in the pump housing and drain hose) I out the machine back together and it works perfectly unless we are washing bathing towels... The motor does not seem to have enough power to get the drum turning with 5 wet towels in the washer. Beyond that the machine works fine, spins at high speed fine and drains fine... What I am however questions is if my timing belt is streched would this alarm happen? Is there a way to test the current Timing Belt to see if it needs replacemnet? Can the motor get weak or would the motor simply fail?
Any feedback would be appreciated as I do not want to simply start changing out expensive parts... There comes a point when replacement makes more sence!
Thank you in advance for any input sent!
ANSWER Hi Dave. The E-3 code is related to the tach circuit in the motor bad. This motor is part # 34001437. Thank you.
