My machine made a buzzing/sizzling sound for about 5 seconds about 2 minutes into the wash cycle, then the main motor quit. So far I have taken the motor out to inspect and it it looks and smells fine. I did notice that the vent hole on the rear of the outer tub had some metal filings present and the belt was running off center of the "spinner pulley" I would note, though I have heard no growling, and the the tubs spins by hand as free as always, I feel the spinner does not spin up as fast as it used to. Also, since I have the motor out would like to replace the motor isolators and the belt. What parts do you recommend to get me going again?
ANSWER Hello Lee. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the motor and board kit 12002039 will need to be ordered and replaced on the unit. Also, the metal shavings will lead to the outer tub needing replaced due to a bad bearing.
