Whirlpool Cabrio washer will not fill with water?


LF is a long fill the machine control has not detected a change in the contact of the pressure switch which controls water fill and stop you didn't mention top load or front load, on a top load or front make sure you have water going to machine if you have flood safe hoses to machine replace then with regular washing machine hose the design of these hose will stop water flow, crazy as this may sound make sure the drain hose has not fallen onto the floor water fills and runs right back out, as a tech I have not had a pressure switch go bad usually on a front load the clip that holds the black hose in place pops loose allowing the hose to rub against the rotor which turns and rub a hose in it sorry to be long winded two simple checks make sure you have water to machine and that the black hose from the pressure switch to the tub does not have a hole in it

Water collecting in wash drum when not operating


You are correct. One of the solenoids on the water valve is not shutting completely and will need to be replaced before it sticks wide open and cause a flood. Here is the part to order. To replace the valve, remove the screws on the top panel, slide it back and lift it off. There you will have access to the valve replacement.

What type of dishwasher do you have? Has your kitchen floor flooded? If it has. The tray under dish washer isn't water tight. Moisture creates some unusual problems. Some of newer dish washer the there control panel under the top of door this also create problem especially if the switches are on the top of the door. Another moisture problem. I have repaired a new Electrolux dish was three times in less than 6 months. The floor would flood from the Maytag side load washing machine. The Madam of the house didn't tell me that the washing machine flooded the kitchen floor. No window in the door and sometime fill water solenoid would stick and fill the tube. When they open washing machine door, 12 gallons of water would spill. So I fix both of them. GB...stewbison

You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.
