Ok, this has been an off and on thing happening.  Yes, the code is F 01, and I know that is a bad one.  I fixed a F 21 pump problem back in Oct. 08 and ever since that happened my washer has not been the same.  Sometimes it will work good enough to get by, and sometimes (like now) it doesn't want to move (the tub part).  Time runs and washer sounds like it's working, water runs and will drain.  But it doesn't turn inside.  Sometimes when it does half way work, it's at the very end when the F 01 rears it's ugly self.  And it does not always show the F 01 code.  My washer was 2 yrs old in Sept. 08.  I hope for help from here, I've got 4 kids and laundry piles up quick!!

TIA
Theresa

if unplugging the washer for 2 minutes doesnt work you need a CCU

Alrighty, I have ordered a new CCU and having it overnighted since the weekend is coming up and I hate to go to the laundry mat.  So I will be attempting to repair this booger myself tomorrow.  Yipee!  Hope I can do it.  I have to go find the diagram that I have seen on this site before on replacing it.  Or at least I think I have seen it.

Update:  I got the new CCU and hubby installed it.  Seems I still have a problem that I was experiencing before we switched out the CCU.  The washer is not spinning out.  I ran a load a while ago and when it finished the clothes were still sopping wet, so I set it on the spin/drain cycle and I watched it run this time.  At first the motor was running but tub did not turn, then it turned a few times and that was about it.  The motor ran until the time ran out and machine cut off...no code on the display.  I have it set on the same cycle again now and this time it has decided to spin.  I hope somebody  can help me here.  I sure thought I had it going this time!

If the Motor turns, check to see if the Belt turns, and the large Pulley.

Ok I ran the diagnostic test and it did not indicate any problems.  Nothing displayed at the end of it.  So, maybe it was just a fluke thing.....out of balance or something, like you said.  Hopefully it won't happen again.  Thanks a bunch for your help and input.

Well, I washed another load last night and they finished , no error codes, but they were sopping wet at the bottom of the washer.  So, I don't what to look for now.  I didn't watch that load to see if it was spinning out like it should.  Any ideas?

the diagnostic cycle should

fill
change dispenser
fill
agitate
drain
spin and drain

something along that nature... during the diagnostic cycle, the last part of it are you seeing it ramp to a full speed spin... it should go slowly between 60 and 120 rpms for about a minute then ramp to 800-1000 rpms

also, does all the water drain out ok?? it shouldn't take more than 30-40 seconds for that water to disappear under the basket.

I cleaned out the pump filter, it had some pellets from my boys' pellet guns in it.  But that is not the problem either.  I washed some towels after this and the washer finished but towels are still dripping wet.  As for the diagnostic test, it ran through all of cycles like it's supposed to and it seemed to spin like it is supposed to.  I don't get it.  It does sound loud to me when it starts the spin cycle.  Still no error codes through any of this.

i do recall one of the wires will plug into the wrong spot on the top. there should be at least one empty spot that does not have any molded label for it.

if that is ok and it never had that problem before you changed the board and you are sure you installed it correctly then one would assume you got a bad board.

you need to set the washer to a rinse cycle and watch it. see if it even tries to spin. I have had a couple of pumps that had stripped out impellors and wouldnt always drain out enough water to allow a proper spin.

I am thinking I must have gotten a bad board.  I sat and watched it on quick wash.  The washer filled up and the time runs down on it, but it doesn't wash(turn inside) or spin.  It still has not given me the code, but is doing the same thing as before the board was replaced.
