Cause 2Motor Control Board

The motor control board provides power to the motor. If the motor control board is defective, the washer may not work properly or may not work at all. First, check the control board for burned out components. To determine if the motor control board is defective, ensure that the control board is providing power to the motor. If the control board has power, but is not providing power to the motor, replace it.
