    water will not shut off even when machine is finished. No codes alerted me to any problem. I have to turn off the water to keep the machine from filling up by itself.

It is possible that the water solenoid is stuck open, sometimes they can be cleaned and yet sometimes they will need to be replaced

Odds on is the pipe from the drum to the pressure solenoid switch is punctured. This switch turns off the inlet valve when the drum is filled sufficiently. If it has a hole in it, the machine will just keep filling up. Switch is usually at the top of the machine. - Rick

You have a stuck cold water solenoid valve.

If this dowes not work, you may have to replace the valve.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

As it's new it will still be under guarantee/warantee? I strongly advise you contact their service desk as you could invalidate the guarantee by following other's guidance. I'm interested in why you have shut off the hot water? Once the temperature is selected by the user, the washer automatically uses a mix of hot and cold water, or just selects cold for rinses etc..
Has the 'LF' been coming on BEFORE or after you shut off the hot water?

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hot water connected but does not fill into the drum? The machine will provide us with a cold wash but on the warm and hot settings the hot water dies not pull through the connection


Turn off the water valves which supply the water to washer hoses. Switch the hot and cold water supply hoses and tighten. Turn the water valves back on and try to run a wash cycle using cold. If hot water only is entering the wash tub the water supply is ok. If this is the case you can unplug the washer and turn off the water valves. Remove the washer back cover and follow the water connection for the hot water. The water solenoid valve will have two electrical wires connected to it. Interchange the hot water solenoid wires with the cold water solenoid connection. Connect the water supply hoses hot to hot and cold to cold then plug the unit then test the washer on the cold wash. If the problem persists it could be a water hose restriction or the timer circuit could be defective. If you have hot water at the normal pressure purchase a new hot water solenoid valve. With the electrical cord unplugged be sure to restore the correct wire connections on the hot and cold water solenoid. To replace the hot water solenoid remove the hose clamp and hose to replace the old valve. Connect the unit to the water and electrical outlet. Turn on the water and test the unit for leaks being careful not to touch any electrical and moving parts. If all checks ok and the correct temperature work, unplug the unit and reassemble.

Cold water valve does not shut off


The valve has trash in it. Take it apart and clean it real good with soap and water and brush.

My Washer is flashing an error message. F27


Error code f27

OVERFLOW CONDITION
If the overflow contact on the pressure switch is closed for more than 60 seconds, an Overflow Condition occurs. In an
overflow condition, the door remains locked and the drain pump runs constantly, even if PAUSE/CANCEL is pressed twice and the display is cleared. Turn off hot and cold water faucets and unplug the unit before servicing.


Check

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, water inlet value, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Check for drain pump failure.
6. Check the inlet valve for proper shut off.
7. Check the pressure switch for proper operation.


Good luck

take the lid off attached to the inlet valve to the dispenserr you will see a little white mechanisim in line with them. this is called your flowmeter take it off and blow through it is should sound like a cazoo. put it back on and try to do a wash cycle. if this doesn't help you need a new flowmeter. also if you take the kick panel off you will find the tech sheet to help you diagnose this problem.

Washer won't stop filling


if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve
