Question and Answers


Washer leaking WM2301HR


Thank You for contacting

I understand your frustration when you keep having to clean up water after each cycle. My best recomendation would be to fill the tub half way with water. Then set is to the drain cycle and watch the pump area. You may have a leaking come from the other end of the hoses that just drips down the length of the hose to spot under the pump. Plus if the filter cap is over tightened you could have cracked the casing and that could be where the leak is coming from.

If you have further questions please let me know.
Thanks for using

Thank you for choosing and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your washer is not working properly.

 It sounds to me like it could be  a bad drum bearing causing your tub not to turn. 

Voltage Testing Hall Sensor at Stator:

If measuring voltage from the Main PCB Assembly to the Hall Sensor, use the
following steps:
1. Unplug power cord.
2. Remove rear washer panel.
3. Locate Hall sensor connector on the stator behind the rotor.
4. Place meter leads on terminals 5 to 4, white to gray.
5. Plug in power cord, close door, and press power button.
6. You should measure 10 to 15 Vdc. If 10 to 15 Vdc is present, control board, white wire, and gray wire are OK! If not follow testing output voltages on control
board in next section
7. To measure output signal voltage from the hall sensor, carefully move test leads to terminals 1 to 4, blue and gray. Slowly rotate motor rotor by hand. 
You should read a pulsing 10 Vdc. If 10 Vdc is measured from 1 to 4, move lead on blue wire to red wire, terminal 2. Repeat rotating motor rotor by hand.
You should read a pulsing 10 Vdc from red to gray.
8. If pulsing 10 Vdc is measured from 1 to 4 and 2 to 4, hall sensor is OK! If either test netted only 9 to 10 Vdc without changing (no pulsing) the hall sensor is
likely defective. Disconnect power by unplugging washer and ohm check hall sensor to verify failure of the hall sensor.

Cabinet cover:
1 Unscrew the 5 screws from upper of the canbinet
2 Unscrew the screw from filter cover.
3 Put a flat ( -) screwdriver or putty knife into the hinge
slots at the bottom of the cover and pry it out.
4 Unscrew the screw from the lower side of the cabinet
5 Open the door.
6 Disassemble the clamp assembly
7 Tilt the cabinet cover.
8 Disconnect the door switch connector.
9 Lift and separate the cabinet cover.
10 Disassemble the clamp assembly.
11 Disassemble the gasket.
NOTE: When assembling the CABINET
COVER, connect the door switch connector.
10 Disassemble the clamp assembly.
11 Disassemble the gasket.

4280FR4048L  and 4280FR4048E  is the rear bearing for the tub.
