That's one of the characteristics of a bad MCU in my experience. If you order from one of the parts links here you can always return it if it does not solve your problem.

Thanks , I'll order a MCU. I just did a once over visual and nothing was out of order. I also did a diagnostic ck and it also points to the Motor or MCU.
 I ASSUME they are referring to the main tub belt driven motor????
Thanks

Thanks alot for the responses. I ordered the MCU and installed today.  O0 Washer works fine, still noisy as hell.
Any market for the board/MCU that I removed??
Thanks

Hi bobh,

Glad to hear you got your washer repaired.
Could you post the part number of the MCU you replaced?

Repair-man,
Is the MCU the Machine Control Unit or Motor Control Unit?

I looked up a diagram of the washer and just was not sure what control got replaced to repair the washer.

You probably will be looking at a tub kit soon to alleviate the noise issue (bad bearings). The motor control board can be rebuilt at www.fixyourboard.com for a nominal fee compared to the cost of a new one. I would have the bad one re-built and kept in the closet for the next  failure. These days, it is better to repair rather than keep replacing a machine just because the cheap parts fail.

Refer to part # 280251 when you are ready to do the tub job
Al, the MCU, is part # W10197864
