Please check the pressure on the inlet valve and see if the flow is good, if this is low on the inlet then check your tap and water line. Otherwise check the INLET filter, check the command to the inlet valve and if the inlet is timed out then there is fault on the program controller unit.

SOURCE: Starts to fill and then stops, and the cycle continues on.

Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back

SOURCE: ERROR H20 STOPS PROGRAM DUE TO LIMITED WATER...WHAT CAN I DO?

The fact that you have 240V to the valve does not prove that the valve is o/k. Determine which is the live wire, and leave connected to valve coil.
You need to remove the neutral wire from the valve, and test with your meter that as well as having 240V going in, you have 240V coming out on the other terminal, if you have not , then you have a faulty valve..Simply replace it.
I assume that you have a neutral feed to the valve, because if you have not, then the fault is probably in the pcb board.
The coils on these valves often go open circuit.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

SOURCE: The machine does not work

Ok this fault is telling me you have a faulty RPS(Rotor Positioning Sensor) in this machine. The RPS sensor is located in the motor Stator. To replace you need to remove the motor rotor then the motor Stator. you want to be careful with this part when fitting it as they can break.

Please rate my advice.

Cheers

Hello. Recently my fisher &PAkel smart drive 703 was removed from its connections as we renovated our laundry. When it was reconnected by our tiler, it stopped working properly. This is what hap


Need to know the error code to help you. When it beeps, take note of the top row of lights & count from right to left. Tell me exactly which lights are on & which are off. Also, tell me if any other lights are blinking. The only thing the tiler would of disconnected are the inlet water hoses. Check that the hose from the cold tap is on the cold inlet & hot tap is on the hot inlet. Marked C & H on back of panel.

Water is not pumped away, or stops in the middle of a cycle and displays one of a several error messages


Recall the error codes by activating the Automatic Diagnostic Test Mode to determine the cause of the problem. Select any one button, except Power, Start, and Stop, and follow this:
Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds>Release the button for 3 seconds>Press and hold the button for 3 seconds

All of the indicators on the console will light up for 5 seconds while 88 is displayed on the Estimated Time Remaining display. If not, repeat the step. Let us know if it cannot be activated.

The program then checks for any saved error codes after 5 seconds. List down the codes and post it back here. The console indicators will turn off then on with the 88 displayed if no error codes are recalled. After 5 seconds, the automatic test begins. The program performs a four-minute automatic test to check major washer functions. Press the same selected button in activating the automatic test above to advance through the automatic test steps.

  1. C0: The motor goes to a slow spin.
  2. C1: Warm water fills through the fresh dispenser and basket floats then disengage.
  3. C2: Cold water fills through the bleach valve for 10 seconds.
  4. C3: Hot water fills through the fabric softener valve for 10 seconds.
  5. C4: Warm water fills through the detergent valve for 10 seconds.
  6. C5: Agitates for 15 seconds.
  7. C6: Recirculates for 10 seconds.
  8. C7: Drains to engage basket and drain further for 10 seconds.
  9. C8: Drains and spins slowly.
  10. C9: Coasts to stop.
  11. Press the Stop or Power button to cancel/exit the test.
Inform us about the result of the test for the repair guide if necessary.

Intermittent water flow interupted by solenoids pulsing


I've got the same problem. If I pause the cycle, wait about 10 seconds, and then resume, the water starts normally. I suspect the Cold Water Inlet Solenoid is sticking, probably due to water sediment in the solenoid causing it to stick. I'll try cleaning it and then replace if that doesn't help and let you know what happens.

You most likely have a smart water temp sensor on your machine. It makes sure you have the proper water temp to dissolve your detergent. Even when set to cold, it will add some hot water. It sounds like your machine is working properly. If you feel you are haveing a problem check the water temperatures in your owners manual and then check them with a thermomater in the washer. If they are not correct you may have a bad temperature sensor. Good Luck and I hope this helped. Mca0824@aol.com
