Question about Washing Machines
No error codes, just total shut down. Unit is level and all other functions seen to work normally.
I had this problem with new duet sport washing machine. Service was out to fix under warranty (4 trips!) replacing water sensor and boards. Finally checked outlet and was told no neutral. ?? Charged us for that visit since not covered. Plugged into another outlet and it worked. Had electrician in, replaced original outlet (although saw no sign of bad connection) and washer worked again! Yippee until today when I had the same issues. Tried in another 2 outlets and still shut down after a few minutes (and in those few minutes it never really ran as it should) Went out to get an outlet sensor ($8 at hardware store). Plugged in and found no errors. Started washer again and it did run and completed cycle. Although estimate 1 minute of final spin cycle took almost 25 minutes (on QUICK wash no less!) Will have to monitor. See if we get lights on outlet sensor next time washer doesn'twork, see what other things in house are running, etc. (although washer on dedicated line). ONLY change since this happenned: We replaced our 30 y.o. electrical box. You'd think this would be better???

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent,
• This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.
