How hardis it to change out the motor control board?
Answer Hello Gary,
To replace the MCU you would remove the main top of unit. Motor control will be on the left hand side of unit if you are facing the front. Remove old and install new.
The machine has an error code "Speed indication error- aatempt to resume programme- if persists contact dealer"
Have tried restarting and always comes up with same fault. Motor is working ok.
Answer Don, You most likely have a loose connection at the JP4 connector, or the motor control board, inside the cabinet has started to fail.. You could also have an issue in the main control board 22004317 ,but at this point not likely. We'll be sending you some more information, that should be helpful in diagnosing the issue. Thanks
After the entire wash cycle is complete there is about 2 inches of water left in the tub. Is this a motor control issue? I replaced this part about a year and a half ago.
Answer Hello Ron,
This is more likely to be a drain pump or a build-up of lint, and debris stopping up the drain. This is what I would try first. Use a drain pump to remove all of the water you can get out from inside the tub. Remove the front panel and access the drain pump. At this point I normally tilt the machine back against the wall. This makes the remaining water go to the back and very little water will escape. Remove the hose from the tub side first and inspect for foreign debris. If it's clear, the issue could be a bad pump. The motor and motor control will not cause the unit to keep water.
My washer will go through the wash cycle and rinse just fine however, when it gets to the final spin cycle and there is 9 minutes left the screen jumps back and forth from 9 to 8 minutes and never completes the spin cycle. I shut it off and the it unlocks and the clothes are wet but the water has drained out.
Answer Hello Peggy.I am sending you a service manual as an attachment. Be aware that the out-of-balance switch on the left rear strut has been eliminated. As per Maytag corporation before they sold out to Whirlpool, This out-of-balance switch was unnecessary and very costly to them as an in warranty item. If your unit has an out-of-balance switch on the left rear strut, as per the manufacturer, cut the connectors off that was connected to this switch and splice them directly together, eliminating the switch altogether. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Which motor controller do I need for this washer?
Answer Hello Robert. Based on the model and serial number you provided, 22004046 is the correct motor control board. Hope this helps.
