Error code 136 motor stall. Can be caused by several things. 1. Faulty wiring or copper stator in motor. Check with ohm meter. You haven't said what model so I can't tell you what your ohms should be. 2. Faulty RPS (rotor position sender) That little circuit board on top of the stator. You need a special RPS test meter to check it. 3. Drum seizing up. Try spinning the steel bowl by hand, it should be very easy to rotate and no loud bearing noise. 4. Faulty main control board. Don't worry about the cracks in the stator. Nearly every machine I work on has cracks. It doesn't affect performance.

Hi just read your posting.Error code 43 is called OUT OF BALANCE SWITCH ERROR.This means either your switch is faulty or your your control module is faulty.95 % of the time it is your switch which is located under the control module which is under the top panel.If you want I can guide you step by step in the replacement of this switch.Please reply on how you would like to proceed and I will help you as much as I can.Looking forward to your reply.

I also got Error Code 37 at the end of a wash with the machine full of suds. I used the other information listed under this problem to establish that the pump was blocked, (no amount of hand-turning loosened the fan). After unplugging the machine from the wall, I removed the pump easily by unplugging the power and earth from the pump, pressed in a clip on the side of the pump to allow the whole pump to rotate and then pull out, (a bayonet type fitting). From where the pump came out from was a small piece of cloth and other gunk! I refitted the pump and reconnected the power and earth. The machine is now working happily again.

Your Error code is 130
130. (10000010) Phase 1 to 6 Single Rotor Position Sensor Error
The Motor Controller has found an error in the pattern received from the Rotor
Position Sensor. Likely causes of this fault are a bad connection on the harness
between the Rotor Position Sensor and the Motor Controller, or a faulty Rotor
Position Sensor.
Primary Source: Wiring.
1) Check for corrosion on the edge connector of the Rotor Position Sensor and
the Motor Controller module connector.
2) Check the contacts on the rotor positional sensor end of the hall harness to
see if any have been damaged. (Each set of contacts in the socket has two
wipers. If the distance between these wipers varies between different
contacts, replace the rotor positional sensor harness).
Secondary Source: Rotor Position Sensor.
Check the Rotor Position Sensor with an R.P.S. tester. Replace if faulty.
Tertiary Source: Motor Controller module.
Replace Motor Controller module.

I had the same problem.... It would stop on the rinse cycle and beep.  Check to make sure you can hear the water pump running or if you can just hear an electrical hum and then it quits, it may be a problem with the water pump.The water pump can be accessed by removing the tub, reach down the center of the agitator and remove plastic bolt, remove the stailess steel tub and then remove the plastic oval shaped cover at the bottom of the main tub to access the pump impellor.  Make sure the impellor turns freely, if it does not you may have a problem with the pump motor.  We had a gold chain go missing and it showed up wrapped around the pump shaft causing it to bind at times.  It took me two tries to fix it but now it runs 100%.

Check your lid switch. Take a PLASTIC Knife while lid is open and settings are on wash cycle...Stick it in the lid hole then see if washer turns on ..It might be cracked..That wound be the reason some time it works... Sometimes it don't...
