My washer works normally till the rinse and final spin cycle. It speeds up very fast even when set on slow. Yesterday it was sounding like a jets engine and suddenly it made a loud bang and heavy scraping. Can you please help!
It sounds like the bearings on unit have gone out due to the jet engine sound and the loud bang and heavy scraping noise you heard. The Speed of the motor would be caused by the speed control 134149220. On the bearings you would need to get outer rear tub 131525500.
I put detergent, bleach and fabric softener in the 3 separate compartments but they all empty in the washer when it fills?
Answer Hello Duane,
If you pull out the dispenser cup and look up into the dispenser assembly, you will see holes up in the top. These holes are most likely clogged causing filling and dispensing of the bleach, detergent and fabric softner. The holes can get clogged by mineral deposits causing a spraying into all sections. Try to clean with old toothbrush and vinegar. If this does not correct then you will have to replace the dispenser assembly 131803710.
Seems to work ok but the timer has to be manually advanced in most spots.
Answer Hello Tony,
It would appear that the timer is faulty and would need to be replaced.
Our washer does not spin laundry out to remove water, it only moves back and forth at a slow speed. I have cleaned pump and hoses, did find debris and removed. can you assist me where to go next?
Answer Nutter, If you're sure the door latch is locked, and the washer drains completely, Here's some help : Drive motor tumbles but does not spin. Display may show F 04. Program and start the washer in the Drain/Spin Cycle.Disconnect the six & ten pin plugs from the speed control board. Measure the voltage drop between pin 6 of the six pin plug & pins 1, 2 ,6, 9, & 10 of the ten pin plug. If between pin 6 (6 pin plug) to pins 1, 2, 6, 9 &10 (10 pin plug) reads 120 VAC. = Defective speed control board. 134743500 If any other readings besides 120 VAC.= Defective control board. 137005000.
I have Fridgidaire front load washer, all still works but will not spin, I have removed motor control board, how do I determine if board is still working. part # is 134058400
Answer Hello Andrew. If the front load washer works, but will not spin, you may have a bad door lock assembly on the unit and will need to replace it. If there is power coming from the board to the motor, then the board is fine. If the lock is bad, these units will not spin.
our washer is kenmore front loader....washer will fill up but not advance to next cycle...have to manual advance...will not kick on motor to spin...pump is fine...motor is fine..dont know if this is bad speed control...or motor control switch
Answer Paul, What about a bad timer ? Here's a basic check "Set the timer to the start of the heavy wash cycle. Allow the washer to operate for 3 minutes. Then measure the voltage drop between pin 5 of the ten pin plug on the spped control board and pin 5 of the six pin plug on the speed control board. If you have a reading of 120 VAC you have a defective speed control board 134149220. If the voltage reading is 0 VAC, you have a defective timer 134330900 " Good Luck
