Thanks for using this service.


If it has been slow spinning for 3 minutes it probably is not going into high speed spin. It will not will not finish out then. Make sure the unit is pumping out all the water first. If it is the motor tachometer or the motor speed control board could be bad. Let me know if it is pumping out all the water.

It is pumping out all the water but the clothes are soaked. Is there a way to tell whether it is the motor tach or motor speed control board. Also this problem seems to be intermittent.


 


Thanks

a lot of times when that happens it is caused from a bad motor tachometer. if you remove the rear lower front panel there is a text sheet with testing procedures for the motor. I will tell you often they will still test good but be bad. so if you buy the parts from repair clinic you can return installed parts.
