Only one error code F1E2 Motor Control Fault. Manual mode: everything works except high spin... it tries to spin for a second then sits and hums with the belt barely moving or not moving. Low spin worked in manual then didn't now does again... Ran tedious diagnostic for "test 3b drive system" and all resistances, voltages good, tachometer working which leads to step 17: replace main control board. This part is >$400 which does not make sense for this old washer. Any clues that it could be something other than the main control board? I was hoping to land on the shifter being bad. = easy cheap fix. Where can I get a control board cannibalized from an junked washer? thx

F1E2 – MOTOR CONTROL FAULT
Indicates a fault of the motor control section of the main control.
In your tech data sheet--->See TEST #3b: Drive System – Motor, page 14.

If you did TEST #3b and it said to replace the control board, then that's the bad part.

Here's the control board for your model:
Main Control Board W10393483


Where can I get a control board cannibalized from an junked washer?
Check your local appliance repair shop in your area.
