All a sudden the machine is not finishing the cycle with a spin. We have to unplug, reset the two flashing lights, then set to spin only, then it works. Like this on most if not all loads. Same type of loads we always have done. Are the shocks worn already? Probably less than 500 total loads at this point.

Whoa! Donít all jump up at once.

If I could get a word in edgewise among all these replies, I would like to inform that the machine is back in action...just one weird trick fixed it right up.

That is to say I cleared a blockage from the pump.
Every issue with this washer has either been motor board or pump related!

Given the ease at which objects move from the basket to pump in this machine, I would recommend to SQ that they provided a more easily accessible clean out on the front panel.

That is all. Your regularly scheduled programming will begin shortly.

Glad you got it fixed!!! That's a good thing!!! Don't own a front loader so I didn't have any advice to give. But it's a good day when something gets fixed.

Hi Robert, after getting crap stuck in your SQ FL washers pump and pump trap several times now don't you think you should look at that first before even posting ?, 


You are the one that is fixing all kinds of washers and dryers that you are picking up, you should be able to figure this out by now, you surly have a service manual for this washer that tells you what is wrong by which lights are blinking.


I would prefer to remove the entire lower panel than try to work through a tiny door, it is only two very accessible screws and then you have complete access to the pump and hoses. This way when you have a washer that is not draining you just pinch off the hose going to the pump with your pinch-off pliers and then you don't have a flood of water to deal with like washers with a tiny access door.


You should be a little more careful about what goes in your washer, after 15+ years I have never had a single thing get in my SQ FL washers pump or trap.
