Great Thanks. What is it sensing? Tilt? Inertia?
You don't think it's the CPU board? We had that replaced soon after we bought the machine over a year ago.
Just to let you know that I changed out the RPS sensor at the stator. The washer is running fine now. Thank you.
Just to be sure, a bad drain solenoid valve wouldn't hold the cycle and the CPU board isn't waiting for the tub to empty? Or some other sensor that would hold up the cycle?
Just to follow-up with the problem:
I replaced the controller board but it did not solve the problem. I investigated further. When the drain cycle would try to start, there was a humming sound coming from below washer. I proceeded to remove the rear back cover and tilted the washer back. I touched the drain pump and that was the source. I gave it a few sharp raps with a screwdriver handle and low and behold, the pump started but with an intermitent grinding sound. The pump had some pennies in it. I noticed the plastic sump drain area that feeds the pump had about 10 coins in it also. I removed the basket and cleaned it out. Long story short. ~ Check the drain sump for foreign objects. ~
