We had a few power flashes the other night while running a load. It did not finish the rinse cycle and gave "drn" code on the estimated time remaining display. I've unplugged it, which does away with the code, but it will not start a cycle. When I try to start one, there are a bunch of clicks and then a low hum coming from what seems to be the motor. There is still water in the drum that I'm about to drain manually. All the research I've done leads me to believe that there is a fault in the motor now and it needs to be reset. How do I complete that?

Added complete model number

Hi Chris,

I think your missing a digit in your model number, please recheck it.

Thanks Chris, that one works! I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

Ok, error code "drn"=Drain Pump System--->Problem Long Drain
Fault is displayed when the water level does not change after the drain pump is on.
--->Is the drain hose or the drain pump clogged?
--->Is the drain hose height greater than 8' (2.4 m)?
--->Is the pressure hose connection from the tub to the main control pinched, kinked, plugged, or leaking air?
--->Too much detergent.
--->Is the pump running? If not, see TEST #7: Drain Pump, page 19.

You may have had a power surge or power spike and it killed the drain pump, or killed the control board that powers the drain pump. I'd first remove the electrical connector to the drain pump, then get a multimeter and put your meter probes in the electrical connector, one meter probe per connector and put it on drain/spin and see if you get 120 volts on your meter.

Here's the drain pump for your model:


This video gives you a general idea of how to access and remove the drain pump:

Here's the control board for your model:

Let us know what you find.
