I took the top and bottom panels off the washer, followed the wiring and vacume lines, and found a small hole in the vacume line. I replaced the vacume hose and started washing. Everything is working great.

Not good! Probably motor control board or motor or wiring harness from control board to motor.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call to confirm that it is not something else ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

F28 error / water starts to fill then quits in 15 sec's


F28 is a communication error which usually means there is a connection that has come loose.Check the wires on the control board.

Same problem


Power it off at the mains for 60 mins and then rety. If it still does the same then call in a repair man as it is most likely thatthe main controller board is faulty and needs replacing.

Will not spin during any cycle w/ or w/out clothing inside


that sounds like something else, I had a similar problem yesterday, the washer would stop after a few mins, I traced the fault to the water hoses, it was plummed in with a hot water feed that can get dirty over time. this had blocked the inline fiter stopping water getting into the machine, if it does not fill within three minutes it can cancel, I cleaned the filter and was out in 10 minutes.

My washer doesn't get enough water in it to wash properally.There isn't a water level knob on the washer.Its a frontloading whirlpool.


There is most likely nothing wrong with the washer. Front load washers will only fill about 2 inches of water in the tub. As the load starts to tumble, water is absorbed into the clothes, causing the water level to drop. The machine senses this and adds more water. The process continues until the water level stabilizes. (thus no need for a water level switch) Your clothes should get wet, but you will little if any water. If you use a gentle cycle you will get slightly more water, as the washers tumble at the same speed for all cycles, but give a more gentile wash if there is more water in the drum.
Also,..... remember because you have so little water in a front load washer (compared to most all top loader models) you want to use only 1 to 2 (max) tablespoons of HE detergent per load!

Unplug the machine. Remove the bottom access panel (three torx screws along the bottom). Reach up under the area where the door lock is and feel for a round door release mechanism. Pull down and the door will unlock
