Is the dryer motor running?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it is not a dryer it is a washer.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
how long will it take to get results?

Sorry about that

Let me look up the technical info to see what may be happening.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

Your machine has a built in diagnostic mode (DM) to possibly tell us what is wrong with your washer.

You need to be able to follow some directions and rotate the control dial to access the DM

Would you like to try this?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

The instructions are hard to understand, so try thinking about the dial as a combination lock like you had in school.
Here would be the combination to enter. Imagine the dial as a clock face.
Turn the dial left around and stop at the 12 o'clock position.
Then turn right to 1:00
pause 1/2 sec
continue turning to 2:00
pause 1/2 sec
continue turning to 3:00
pause 1/2 sec
turn left back to 2:00
pause 1/2
turn back right back to 3:00
If it works all the lights will blink
Then rotate knob until only the SPIN lamp comes on and press START
The will initiate the self test and run through all the cycles in about 3 minutes

Running now

Running ? As in it works? OR You access the dmode and it is testing the machine?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Testing it it seems to be spinning just not as fast as normal the clothes are all still very wet when done and the test is completed

Is the washer pumping all the water out?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the pump works fine. Pumps all the water out

The test mode will not spin the clothes if you have them in the washer. It will just start to spin and complete the test without error codes.

Do you have clothes in the machine?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No clothes now that's just what it was doing before it quit spinning

If the cycle completes with no errors, put the machine into DRAIN/SPIN to test the spin function

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

If it still does not spin, place the machine back into diagnostics and this time rotate the dial until the DONE light is on and press start.

Next rotate the dial and tell me if you get any of the lights flashing in a sequence and a pause and then another sequence. eg sensing rinse done /pause/ rinse done

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

There is a copy of the tech guide located in the inside front of your machine on the top left side of the front panel in a plastic bag.

You can access to by tipping up the washer against the wall and reaching up and tearing it out of the bag.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Got that but no codes

What happens when you place it into DRAIN/SPIN

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
All lights Blink and doesn't do anything

All 6 lights just flash?

or are you still in diagnostic mode ?

.

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
all flash and it's still in dm mode

They will all flash if no errors codes are stored.

As you turn the dial CCW the stored codes will appear with each click of the dial

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Didn't see any codes just the different test modes

Ok, lets try one more test.

Put the machine back into diagnostic mode but this time turn the dial until the SPIN light comes on and press the START button

This will re-calibrate the computer to the machine and shut off.

If it still does not work, you need to replace the computer board.
