Question about Malber P21 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Water level not right

We have a Malbers P21 on a boat and it doesn't seem to be filling with water up to a normal level. The water level only reaches about an inch on the window. This can't possibly be enough water to wash a regular load. Can you suggest any trouble shooting ideas for us to try or should we call a dealer respresentative to look at. We are a Marine repair shop and these things really do not fall under our expertise. Thank you for your help.

Re: water level not right

There is a water level switch on the machine. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you should find it easily. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch (easy to do it). Good luck !

Bosch washing machine starts filling with water, then does nothing, timer counts down but no movment

have a technician check it out as it may be a board problem
normally the fill level switch ,when the set water level is reached activates 2 things
it stops the water in and at the same time moves the program on to start the wash cycle
so it is either that switch or the program board

Doesn't fill

Possible that the water level sensor is faulty as it tends to indicate before the level has reached thereby starting the rinse cycle.
Usually this can be due to faulty level settings or fault in the pressure switch as it can be acting too fast. It will be best to clean the inlet valve and check the flow , test the water level sensor and see if this works by blowing into the diaphragm.

It is possible that the water level sensor has failed and so does not detect to stop the inlet valve from filling.You can remove and check this level sensor normally it can be a damaged diaphragm and replace the same so that the program proceeds to the next stage to start the machinetips to see working of the machine;

Bosch Axxis WFL 2060 Front Load Washer - DRUM DOESN'T CYCLE

This seems to be a fault with the program controller unit or the water level sensor. The program does not advance further after the inlet is filled but operates the drain to exit water. Now the water level sensor must be checked as if this is not working in the stipulated time it will drain out. Also unless the water level sensor contacts on reaching of set level the motor must start.

My washer fills and doesn't stop. I try to advance it to the spin cycle but none of the cycles work. I changed the lid switch because it wouldn't fill at all. Now it fills and nothing else. Tested...

The fill switch is bad. That's the only "safety" on the washer that will shut the water off after reaching desired depth. To test it, run your machine on the various water levels. For example, start out on the low setting. If the water doesn't shut off after the tub is half full, then it's the fill switch inside the unit next to the tub.

remove edge decore trims from left and right side front of control panel
remove phillips screws from bottom corners of contol panel
remove knob from water level selector
raise control panel ~1 inch then flip over backwords on pivots
depress lock tab on righ/underside of water level control body where it touches metal mount plate
rotate water level control body 90deg anticolckwise
pull body off
top side of body next to knob shaft is 1/8 hex head bolt
turn clockwise to rais water level

machine can be operated with this part not fitted so can check level. fill, adjust screw, fill will start again, adjust screw, until water level is correct
reinstall in reverse order

Machine won't stop filling

Sounds like your solinoid valve needs replacing. It cuts the water off when it has reached the right level.
