When the wash gets to the drain and spin cycle, sometimes spins and works fine. But more than not, the pump cycles but the tub does not spin or spins slowly and stops.
This machine is only 6 months old

They farm all there service out to independent in your area like A&E which is part of sears don't tell anyone.And also smaller companies too.They have no factory service anyway.Just call the 800 #in the manual .

I will on Monday
Is there anything I can try or a possible solution so I can get my laundry done before leaving town Monday morning. I am an electrical contractor and can repair just about anything. The trouble shooting guide in the manual does not go any further than extremely basic fixes.
Laundrymat is not a great solution as it is at least an hour away

Thanks

In the manual i gave you it least common problems .One of the most common problems is nut get loose and pulley falls down or off.You could tilt washer back to look at this but have to remove a plastic shield first.Very easy.And look for broken wires to under there.Something could be in pump.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Nothing in the pump, no loose bolts, wiring is perfect, splutch assembly looks perfect too.

I think you did all you could.They have had problem with certain parts and control boards that if you replace it and certain other parts you have to reprogram it.Call for service while in warranty .

This washer is made by whirlpool and similar to yours and show you how to put it in a diagnostic mode but you would need your tech sheet to help you further.It looks like a simple machine but can be a bitch sometimes.

Four Codes:
1) Over Suds Condition Detected (Imagine That)
2) Off Balance Load Detected (It was a sexual Experiment)
3) No Fill Long Fill (I started it earlier without turning on the cold water)
4) Motor Fault "Doesn't Sound Good"

I re-calibrated it just for the heck of it.
