Hi, my name is Peter. I am eager to help you solve your appliance problems.

Peter :

Is the washer very loud in the spin cycle?

Peter :

The control board is detecting over amperage from the motor. There was a service bulletin on these washers and depending on the serial # they would repair under warranty. Contact the manufacturer to see if yours is covered.

Peter :

Does it do it with a large load? Have you removed the inner tub to see if something is stuck between the tubs. If something is stuck that would cause the over amperage.

Peter :

You may send additional questions directly to me.
