Your float switch is not working: there is a small round float located in the front bottom left (facing the door) area of your dishwasher this plastic float has a pin that goes into a hole on it's underside when the water reaches the top of the dishwasher tub it lifts up the float opening the switch under the pin shutting the water off

    Ok, Thanks.
    Part# 818169 and it appears to be located right under top panel. Unplug the washer. Remove the two fill hoses.Should be three screws on the back that hold the top panel. Lift it up and the valve will have two wire harnesses plugged into it with a small fill hose. I hope this has helped you. If you need to order the valve, please give my web site a chance at www.whirlpoolpartssurplus.com And please let me know if I can assist you further.

My washer is not working it begins to spin stops and has the letters LE appearing.


Hi,

This a common problem for all front loaders. Your washer will not drain or work 'cause your outlet filter is clogged or an unusually heavy load. The small door is on the left side front bottom of your washer. Remove the door with a putty knife or thin butter knife inserted in the middle top of the access panel door. Drain the water from the filter housing by pulling the tube out of the clip and unplugging, allow it to run into a bucket while the machine is in spin only mode. This mode is acheived when the washer is first powered on press the spin button until no spin is reached then run. Run in this mode until no water is draining from the tube in the bucket. Keep the tube as low as possible. When water has stopped coming out of the tube turn off the washer and unplug from the wall. This step is important because this resets the fault. Expect some water to come out when you open the filter housing by turning counterclockwise until you can pull the filter from its housing. Clean out your filter, return to housing turning clockwise until seated and recap the tube and place in the holder, refit the cover and plug back into the wall. Fixed. You may also need to lighten the load a bit but I always try full on load anyways. If it fails again just lighten, unplug wait >1 minute then replug and run.

Goodluck..

Hi

It seems that something is clogged in the drain pump assembly and you have to clean it to solve this issue. After cleaning if the issue returns then test the door lock assembly, if bad it should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The washer is ovrtflowing with water. It does not stop


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Overfilling in your washer occurs mainly due to two things: water inlet valve going bad and/or the water level switch. If the water inlet valve has gone bad it won’t be able to shut off even when the electricity has been turned off. If the issue is with the water level switch then it won’t tell the water to shut off and the machine will overflow as this switch is to sense the water level in the clothes tub. However, with that being said it seems that you’ll need to replace the water inlet valve. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
