Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
This is a difficult thing to diagnose until you get there to look at it, the bang puzzles me but it may be that motor assembly which may have separated or broke completely. this is not you typical motor assembly. you need to pull the rear access and check the motor assembly. theres no belt so the bang could be something in the motor or one of the bolts possibly came loose. its hard to say, the shocks could also be the cause of the bang. was this overloaded at the time ?
could have been overloaded . do you feel its maybe more of a motor assembly problem . I understand without looking to see if the motor assembly is broken or not. If the motor assembly was broken or busted would the tub still move back and forth very slowly. because that's what it is doing at this point . the tub goes back and forth slowly and the unit just displays the E3 code ?
ok I see the response now that I gave sorry for the confusion
so what I am getting is if a loose wire and a bad shock does not repaire this . that its most likely a motor assembly that's broke or the pcb board ?? probably would be the problem.??
Hi Brian , I just wanted to follow up for you on this frontload washer. The stainless tub where the spyder attachment attaches to the stainless drum had busted on one or more of its legs to the best of my knowledge without me actually opening up the tub sections for inspection.. The stainless drum was out of its trueness and when I would rotate the stainless drum it would rub up against the outer plastic drum at one point of its rotation. I could also hear a couple of loose pieces of something rattling around between the stainless drum and the outer plastic drum when I manually rotated the stainless drum also. So you were correct suggesting that if something hadn't busted or broke loose that I should look at the motor assembly. I just wanted to thank you for your swift help in response to my washing machine question and if I need help in the future I will be sure to try and contact you if your on-line and available. I don't know of a quick way of notifying and requesting you on just answer when I need assistance Brian . So if theres a different way of requesting your assistance when I log on to just answer , please let me know because when I don't get a response from you there are other techs that try to answer my question and if your on line and available I would rather give the question , tip and credit to you at this point so far. Thanks for all your assistance and I will be looking forward for help in the future. Darren
