Oh Great Worshipful Samurai --

I am but a grasshopper stuck in the spin-cycle of life, and not worthy of your magnificence.  I seek your great wisdom to remedy a "honey-do" and reduce that list to the size of my pea-sized brain!

Now, cutting through the crap!!!...

Some time ago the 'Delicates' cycle on this washer stopped working.  Specifically, the machine would shut itself off mid-cycle.  When it was turned off, there was soapy water in the tub.  My wife is able to restart the machine and it will complete the cycle.  But the clothes end up covered with these soft, black flakes -- almost like a dust that has been stuck together and formed into flakes.

Today she reports a similar situation with the 'Hand Washables' cycle.  It will run its full cycle, but the flakes show up on the clothes.

We do not smell anything electrical burning.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming...

If the Great Appliance Samurai can look kindly on this poor, humble servant, and find it in his majesty's supreme being to give favor to this grasshopper, my wife will wash the clothes of the Great Emporer for the rest of his life.  (And if the Great Samurai's advice is any good, then the clothes won't have flakes all over them!!)

Your Humble Servant,

Wasabi Konichiwa

tis machine looks to have some age on it, and as far as the flakes go it is more than likely gookus that has accumulated over the year underneath the balance ring and or around the top of the tub after removing the balance ring (common occurence)...not a too terrible job but it does require removing the outer cabinet 

tub and balance ring assembly

outer case

control panel

the problem with it stopping mid cycle could be a worn out timer (shaft), over the years i does get weak and can get striped out (wobbles) when this happens you can move it back and forth and it will start again...other than this your going to have to get the wiring diagram (should be behind the control panel) this one shows to have the 2 speed motor and check for proper voltage at the motor windings...does the machine work ok in regular cycle....

if you decide to remove the cabinet...take the 2 screwds out at each end of the control panel and the panel will slide slightly forward and fold back...then on nech end there will be a brass clip that has to be pushed down and released then the whole cabinet will tilt forward and come off....you then will access to the whole unit and can release the white balance ring to clean it....while apart you should be able to do the checks on the motor...good  luck

Well, I didn't say I was the fastest grasshopper on the plant!  But I finally did get around to checking on the washer.

The timer shaft seems to be in good shape -- no wiggle on the knob.  But before I get into the control panel and motor winding voltage, what should I be looking for here?

Thanks.
