I just posted the following question to Tyler.. but I'll

I just posted the following question to Tyler.. but I'll pass it on to you as well! Tyler - I've found your threads to be extremely useful.. so thank you! Posting my first questions below: thank you ahead of time!Regarding the LG WM3988HWA Washer/Dryer Combo.The unit is making a loud sound when the basket pauses during the wash cycle. It then WILL NOT spin and makes same noise for the dry cycle.Based on similar threads you've posted in, I'm thinking this is Drain Pump issue. Based on info above do you think I just need to replace Drain Pump?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your LG is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: 2008/09JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes, I believe so.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I found what I believe to be the correct Drain Pump part.. and watched the associated 'install video'

Tyler D I have a question for you on a Frigidaire laundry

Hi Tyler D I have a question for you on a Frigidaire laundry center Model # FFLE1011MW2 this unit has no lights for the washer and dryer controls and it just beeps when you turn the cycle selection knobs for both the dryer and washer. Dryer beeps when you select its cycles and runs normal. The washer does not beep when you select the cycles and does nothing and wont start as if its not receiving power. The washer also has done this intermittently in the past acting like a no power situation with the washer and has come back out of the clear blue without doing anything according to the customer. When I arrived the dryer worked as I explained and the washer cycle selection was in the mode of not beeping and seemed as if it was at a no power situation at the interface board for the washers cycle selector. I tried giggling wires at the interface board on the inside of the console and the electronic control board at the bottom right front of the cabinet while turning the cycle selector knob for the washer to try to get the power restored back at the cycle selection knob but nothing worked. I then tripped the breaker at the panel on purpose and reset the breaker for the washer and the beeping at the cycle selector for the washer was restored and the washer functioned normally. It fills, it drains , it spins so the main mechanical components in the washer system seem to be working. I'm thinking tyler that the electronic control board for this may be acting up. I don't think it is the small little interface board that the cycle selector knob goes to but I'm not positive also this electronic control board for the washer only is slightly different. This one seems to act as a dual electronic control board and has wires that come from it that not only controls the lid lock, drain pump, and water valves but it also has wires that go to the washer motor and motor tachometer and thermal fuse for the motor. This doesn't have a separate motor control unit. Have you every ran into this type of scenario with this model before T. Like I mentioned I reset the breaker and brought it back so that is why I was thinking its that control board at the bottom right front of the unit.
