In the final spin cycle my washer stops with a C1 code. I yanked the
message (below) from another newsgroup post. This happens on small
loads so I know it's not being overloaded. If it is a motor problem is
it an easy/wrthwhile repair? I won't pay to fix this thing unless I can
do it myself -- I have had nothing but problems with it. Thanks.
--- MESSAGE ---
"C1 = Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit.
If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current
limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and
display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for
instantaneous current limit trip.
Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current
draw greater than 5.55 amps at the motor windings.
Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps
instantly at the motor windings.
This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or
motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem. "
