I could get the new motor, do I need a new harness too?  I don't see it in the kit.

the conversion kit comes with everything you need to change out: motor, harness, and new board.

Ok, I put in the new conversion kit.  When I go into spin test, it sound slike it is extracting the water from the tub (it does have water in it) and the door lock silenoid is buzzing and then switching to lock and unlock.  So it will buzz a couple times, and lock and unlock a couple of times, and then buzz some more.

 

It also has shown the FL code when I have tries to just get the thing to run a quick washing cycle.

 

What is wrong with this thing now?? AAARRRGGHHH!!

best check in the drain pump for obstruction(coin,etc) as there should be no water left in the unit by the time spin is attempted,and if there is still water,this will nullify spin cucle.

When I couldn't get it to go into spin mode (i forgot the codes)  I tried to put it into a quick wash cycle to see what it would do.  At some point the tub filled with water, and the power got pulled.  SO from then on, there was water in the tub for all the tests.

Does anyone know where I go from here?  I've got water in the tub, and the washer won't spin even in test mode.  The door lock keeps cycling open and closed.

If the unit does not see the door closed and locked, it will not run.  You should be able to access the board output test without the door locking and power up the pump to get the water out.  Follow the procedure listed on the Tech sheet under board output test.  This should allow you to pump out the water and try additional tests as well.

I don't have the tech sheet.  Does anyone have these procedures, or maybe just the codes for all the board output tests?  Thanks.

Manual would be located on STH, however cannot be downloaded unless  a paid member, so would do no good to post a link...perhaps the Samurai has one he would be willing to share when he logs on...

I'm sure that if twithers made a sufficiently generous donation to my flavorite charity, I would be so overcome with gratitude that I could not stop myself from giving him a service manual pdf as a humble token of my appreciation. :angel:

If I don't have to buy a new washer I will have plenty for "The Great One's" embibement fund.

Here's the latest rub:  The washer continuously tries to lock the door.  So the locking mechanism just pops back and forth until the FL code pops up.  It won't shut off by turning the machine off.  I have to unplug it.  So after I have replaced the LCD membrane, Membrane Control panel, and done the motor and control board conversion, this is all it does.  Have I waisted a ton of money or what?

I think so.  The one thing is does seem to always do is sound like it's pumping out the water.

Go to the search window and put in the model # it should give more information on that washer.

Any idea why the door lock keeps cycling back and forth?  Like it is trying to constantly lock and unlock.
