How do I definitely figure out if I have a bad Timer (#131583200) or Speed Control Unit (#131725300)? I've used the Tech Sheet & Schematics to trouble shoot an intermittent problem of the main motor not getting any power. I don't find the issue; put it back together and then it starts working again. The next time I try to use it, the same thing happens again. Everything else is working normally.

Hi Tracy, thank you for the question. The motor control board, part number PS418639, for your unit is a separate circuit board that receives signals from the main control or the timer to activate the drive motor. It controls the drive motor speed as well as the direction for the spin and tumble actions during the cycle. You may need to inspect the board for any visible damage. You can do a continuity test on the board to make sure if it is faulty or not. If it is faulty, you may need to replace it. We hope this sorts out your problem!

Hi Carl, thank you for the question. Make sure suspension springs are fine. If this is not the issue, we would recommend replacing the rear drum with bearing, part number PS418071. Good luck with your repair!

Hello John, Thank you for your inquiry. To remove this part, you would need to take out the screws on the top panel bracket and the top should lift off. Good luck with your repair.

The door catch broke and the door would not close.
First, I had to remove 2 screws to take off the 2 broken pieces of the door catch. Then I put the new one on using the same 2 screws. The door is now able to close, but does not lock properly. In order to make it work, I put a thin piece of rubber into the place where the door meets the machine. This causes the lock to engage and the machine to work. I don't know how much longer it will work since the repairman claims that the main bearing is going, but hopefully it will last a bit longer.

Part Select got the part to me in one day using the standard shipping, which was impressive. I just wish that I hadn't wasted money on calling a repairman only to have him tell me that he didn't have the part. He charged for the visit anyway even though I told him ahead of time the problem and the model of my machine.

Both vibration shock absorbers broken
removed 2 screws and removed top access cover. removed 2 screws and removed front access cover. removed 4 retaining pins (one with nammer and punch because it was stuck) connected lower ends of new shocks with plastic pins, extended each shock to slip fit and connected upper ends to wash tub mounts. Reinstalled panels. I wish I could say that it all went well from there but......when the shocks broke, apparently the hit the motor took was enough to cause an electronic failure of the speed cycle control chip. Now Im waiting for that part.
