Concrete floor. After all parts replaced I can make it through a full wash cycle empty. With the weight of a king size flannel bed sheet 10lbs wet, it try's to spin and can't.

So the suggestion of control board, and wire harness above... Would you still suggest those knowing this? With the old rotor/stator I couldn't make it through a cycle on an empty load.

1 more week before a&e can come back to look at it again.

One more piece of the puzzle while I wait for the tech...

If I put into fastest spin cycle I hear it inside the house and I never did before. So perhaps that bearing is bad?

Could be the bearing however these unit have very few bearing issues harness and hall sensor can be check ed very fast if they check I believe the tech Manuel says replace the control I will try and look it up later I have had a few unit make strange noises like you have one bad sensor one a harness issue and one a control board the tech manual on these unit is very good if followed and the correct testing done I have found
