Please read my response #6. After reading it, how can you possibly be thinking that I have something stuck ? ---- or ---- have leaks and noises. If you are thinking there might be noises coming from the clutch and or the tub, since the belt is disconnected, obviously there are no noises coming from that area. The motor itself runs nice and quiet though.
Answer Hello Bill. Sorry, but we have advised you all the information the manufacture offers for the code and problem you are having. Maybe you can post your question on the repair forum for the technicians on there and see if they have seen this before and can give you an answer. Here is a link to the repair forum. Please post you question on there for the technicians. Thank you and Good Luck! http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/
7th update:repeating what I said in my 6th update and earlier updates, to remove the clutch and any other sources of drag and load, I disconnected the belt and then performed the tests. SO ---- clothes being balled up and noises would be impossible. What are the bearing and seal numbers for serial Numbers starting with 133---? Ask your systems engineers: WHAT ARE ALL THE SITUATIONS / CONDITIONS THAT CAUSE A "dc" code. ??????
Answer Bill, First Off AppliancePartsPros,is not the manufacturer of your washer, so we have no access to a"system engineer" We do have a well educated and experienced technical staff to answer the questions posed by our customers. To acquire the tub bearing,tub seal, and associated parts you will need to order the outer tub assembly 25001199 Let's hope you don't need it. I'll try and explain what generates the "DC" code on your machine. "LED Display > dc Distribute Clothes: The load is unbalanced, preventing high speed spin.> Redistribute clothes." There are four comonents involved, the tub position sensor, the clutch, the motor and the motor control board. The motor runs in both directions, and in the wash cycle the clutch spring is relaxed and the integral clutch is locked and the lifters rotate. In the spin cycle, the motor reverses, the clutch spring tenses and the integral clutch releases when the tub reverses direction and the tub spins(during this process you may see the lifters rotate 1/4 to 1/2 rotation when the cycle starts. Now what you need to realize is, the main control board is telling the motor control board what to do, the motor control sends that information to the motor, as the motor rotates, it and the motor control feeds the, rpm,resistance and a low voltage circuit back to the main control. The main control board "chip" is looking for a specific reading based on the cycle parameters in the chip. If the readings are too high, too low, or fluctuates, the "chip" reads it as a defect and produces the code in the display, if the parameters are not met. A slipping clutch, worn or tight tub bearing, loose belt or motor could create the code, as well as a loose connection in the harness between the motor , motor control board and the main control board. Here are some of the "basic checks", "Will Not Spin • During fill cycle – If machine tumbles and spins simultaneously replace clutch assembly. • During spin cycle – If machine tumbles and spins simultaneously replace clutch assembly. • Perform Motor and Motor Control Test.• Check belt. • Check that the machine control correctly senses that all 3 water levels are empty. • Tub Displacement Sensor disconnected, or loose wire." I'm taking for granted you have access and conducted the diagnostic tests and other test listed on the technical data sheet and wiring diagram, that should be in an the envelope, taped to the inside of the front panel of the washer or have acquired a PDF file for the service manual for your washer.
