gkofc,

Good sign you have two votes for the Lower Wiring harness.  I would still isolate the +12VDC to the Lowering Wiring harness to prove absolutely it is or is not a  Lower Wiring harness issue.  I hope you will share your findings so we can all profit from the experience of this issue.  It’s definitely not a common FAV9800/FAV9600A failure.

Good afternoon everybody.I have found the problem and the washer is now working.The bad news is that the bearings and tub seal are bad.The problem was the three wires to the TDS were corroded and two of the wires were making contact.The pink and the red/white wirte.I tried cleaning but no luck.The lower harness is NLA, so I soldered the wires on to the board.I was so happy when it started to work, but thats life.

Thank you all for your prompt assistence and have a good afternoon.

gkofc,

Good deal on the fix and thank you for the update.   Keep that left hand lid lock the corrosion more than likely can be cleaned up.  That left side bleach dispenser is tough on components.       

Have a good one.....Rich

""The bad news is that the bearings and tub seal are bad.""

For DIY owners don't be fooled by comments that you can't replace the Outer Tub bearings by the comment ""you need to buy a new Outer Tub $$$ to get replacement bearings"".

The Outer Tub Bearings, Tub Seal, Tranny O-ring and I would recommend replacing the bearings in the Spinner Support.  This would be a complete rebuild of the Outer Tub and be in the ball park of $60. 

I have done it on a series 10 machine and helped a owner with a Series 15 machine.  I have found the Series 12 and above use a different bearing assembly for one of the bearings sets but there is a work around.  You can use standard 6207-2RS bearings for FAV6800A/FAV9800A machines Series 10 thru 17.

I would not junk the machine for what I consider a fairly straight forward repair of an Outer Tub rebuild.

Google this  “”FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement””  and read the process.......Dick
