Need Appliance Repair Help? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
You say that the pump comes on for 10 seconds, then does the washer shut off completely? Or what happens exactly?
So you are correct, this is an issue an issue with the motor. When it runs for 10 seconds and it won't fill or anything, that means the motor control board is giving a bad signal and doesn't think the belt is connected to the motor. Check the belt and see if the belt is connected. If it is, then it's a bit of a guess as to whether the motor or the motor control board is bad because you don't know if the motor control board is reading the motor incorrectly or the motor itself is just bad.

Yes, I understand it's the drain motor that runs, but the problem is actually the main motor or the motor control board.
There really isn't any unfortunately. I would order the board from Repairclinic.com as they allow returns if you end up not needing it unlike most places.
That is correct, the motor control board mounted to the floor below the tub.
