Not draining...not filling

I am not sure of the model but the model # is 110.46472501. It started with not draining prior to warranty. The tech came out and advised us to clean the trap as was suggested to someone else, but it worked for 4 - 6 loads and then all lights were flashing again. Second tech ran a diagnostics (1st tech did not) said it was the door door lock still having a problem so now they are ordering 2 computer panels. I am not too sure if they really know what is wrong and are trying to charge me as they are saying the initial problem was not warrenty related...but the machine is still lighting up with the same code...Add a Garment, Rinse and Clothes Clean. Any suggestions?

Re: Not draining...not filling

Blocked filters are not normally warranty related calls, however a reasonable engineer would turn a blind eye, the control module (pcb) can cause the door not to lock and create the fault that you have, insist done under warranty as on going fault. Regards Advisor

Washer won't fill with water

Hi Allen, this is JK. I see that you are having trouble with your washer (FEX831CS) not spinning or filling with water. For the washer not spinning, check the drain hose length and make sure there are no restrictions. The concern could be with the timer or the drain pump. For the washer not filling, I would check the water pressure, pressure switch and the water inlet valve. If all of these suggestions pan out and the problem still persists, think about what may have happened prior to this occurrence. For instance, did you notice any error codes, odors, or other strange functions prior to this issue? If you are still having these issues and can think of anything in particular, please feel free to reconnect.

My Kenmore front load washer will not fill--it sounds like it is draining instead. The last load washed did not spin correctly and the clothes were very wet when cycle completed.

Washer Not Filling:

  • Door Not Closed and Locked
    • Front load washers won't fill if the door is not closed and locked. Listen for the door locking when starting a cycle, then pull on the door to make sure the door is closed and locked.
  • Delayed Start Feature
    • Some washers have a delay prior to filling, where the electronic control is checking the dispenser function. This is Normal.
  • Flashing Lights or Error Code on Display
    • When there is a filling issue, the washer may shut off and display one of the following codes: LF, LE, nF, IE, FH, E10 or F20.
    • If the washer is displaying one of the above error codes, then do the hard reset procedure listed below.

If the appliance is not accepting input from the control panel, follow the steps below to reset the control:

  1. Unplug or turn the circuit breaker off for 30 seconds.
  2. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet or turn the breaker back on and wait 30 seconds.
  3. Press the Pause / Cancel / Stop button twice to clear the display.
  4. Start a short cycle, to check operation of the appliance, by selecting a cycle and pressing and holding the start button until the appliance starts.

New washing machine model wtw4800xq will not begin fill cycle -delivered yesterday and filled - not today?

Make sure it is level and that the drain hose is hooked up properly and not clogged. Check all electrical and water connections to make sure they are tight and turned on. Other than that You will need to call the people whom you purchased this and have them look at it becasue if you start trying to repair anything by taking it apart the warranty will be void. One other thing you can check is the pump filter under the tub. something may have gotten inside and plugged it up. If there is any water left in the machine it will not start filling.

The door will not go to lock,I push the start button it will run for 2seconds,then it will stop and flashes pause,their is a small piece that broke off the bottom of the lock,but the door seems to shut...

these elctronic controls can become problems to troubleshoot sometimes. however the normal operation on this model when you power up is it will drainn first or try to drain any water left in bottom to make sure you have fresh water. then the door will lock prior to it filling with water... i would first try to look at drain pump and hose to drain and make sure no obstruction and that drain pumpp is working properly... if all looks good and your sure drain pump is ok then look at the door lock mechanism as it could have failed... repost with anymore questions ,but willing to bet the drain pump is the culprit...

Wash machine is draining while trying to fill up

Make sure your drain hose only goes into the stand pipe about 4" and secure it. If it goes in too deep a siphon will occur. Also make sure your stand pipe is not too short. It needs to be 18" above the trap or 30" above the floor. If it's less, then siphoning can also occur.

Filling up with water

Jimbo, you are going to need a new inlet valve. This is very easy to change out. Remove the 3 torx screws in the back for the top. Slide it off toward the back. The valve will be on the inside top left. Two quick connect harnesses, a couple of hose clamps and your done. I don't have the part number on hand but you can find it on the tech sheet located behind the bottom panel. Three screws to take that off. Or you can go to, enter your model number and hunt it down from there. Once you change the valve, your leaking problem will be over. Catriver.

Drain pump starts and stops prior to final spin cycle

Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, back.
