Question and Answers

Q:

why does my front load washer not tumble?

A:

I understand how important it is for your washer to be spinning on all of the cycles so that your clothes will be nice an clean. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I did manage to find a link that will provide you with more information about your problem: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/questions/217290-washer-wont-cycles-wont-spin-1. I hope my link is useful.

I may need clarification on this question. You say it doesn't tumble but it goes back and forth at 3 second intervals. This sounds like a tumble.

As long as it spins then the motor control and motor are most likely okay.

If the problem is only with the tumble action I suspect the main control is at fault.

Please clarify the problem and reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Thank You for your link Maestro. Perhaps this detail might clarify for Fred. During the wash cycle, the tumbling at 3 sec intervals or 3.5 revolutions per turn, is usually for the delicate cycle tumbling. For cotton however, the tumbling should be at shorter intervals for cleaner wash. Somehow, this shorter interval tumbling does not kick in for cotton selection. The same 3 sec interval tumbling takes place during the rinse cycle. So the bottom line is that the dirty cotton clothes do not come out clean as before. I hope this clarifies.

Thanks for the clarification. This is not the normal problem with these models but from the description you give the problem would most likely the machine control board. The machine control has direct control over motor speed and direction. It does read the timer to know what cycle is being called for. If only one cycle was affected I'd try the timer but from the descriptin you give more than one cycle is affected which would indicate the machine control is at fault. I hope this helps. If there are any additional details I'll try to help further.

Thank you Fred, for some direction. When you say machine control, are you talking about the main board on top of the machine, near where the timer is located? I did check to see if there were any burn marks on any of the solders and the board looks clean. Perhaps, what might help is exactly what interval of tumbling is supposed to be normal for the cotton/linine cycle. Whenever it tumbles, it is the 3 sec interval when cotton is selected.

Fred: Yes, this is helpful. It seems the tumble cycle for the cottom is much longer than the 3 sec that the chart shows. I will keep the chart and keep my eye on it next time. Thank You for all your help.
