Issues with my FP washer
I have a 9 year old FP washer that has been running pretty well. Today it started having issues. During the wash cycle it started beeping. The tub was full of water. I unplugged and then plugged it back in. When I plugged it in there was an electrical/shock sound. I was able to turn it back on and move to the rinse so it would drain and spin.
I tried washing another load later in the day and watched it. Water started showering over the clothes and just kept going. The soapy shower never started, and it never started filling up. The machine was just draining as the water came in. I advanced it to spin, and it did the very slow spin (like it does between cycles) for several minutes, then went into the regular spin.
Does anyone know offhand what might be going on, and if it is cost effective at all to try to fix it? I'm thinking the sound I heard when plugging it in might mean that at the very least it needs a new computer or control panel.
Thanks for any assistance you can give!
