Lg wf-t1022tp gives a PE error code.


Try this first before replacing any parts or disassembling your LG washer:
- Unplug the washing machine for 1 minute.
- Plug the washing machine back into power.
- Restart the wash cycle.
- The washing machine may now have cleared the PE error code, if not see below...

You will need to check the wiring harness that connects the water level pressure sensor to the main control board.
- Check for a loose wire harness, a damaged wire harness, or a burnt faulty wire.
- Check that you get continuity through the wire harness by checking it with a multimeter.
- If the wire harness from the water level pressure sensor to the main control board is found to be faulty, replace it.
- If you get continuity and the wiring harness is securely connected to both the water level pressure sensor and the main control board, then proceed to the step below...

No water getting in. main water line is ok and tested


Test the inlet valve and the water level switch.
The inlet valve can be tested reading continuity on valve solenoid contacts, check also the water level switch actuated by a floating sensor.
If they are ok then the problem is usually the timer control board. Testing this part is more complicate and is done reading voltages.
Always keep your appliance unplugged when you DIY.

Kenmore 80 washing machine -water sensor not working


Yes,
Kenmore is uniformly easy to work on, everything comes off from the front.
There are two 80 models,
on the most common, newer model, the edge trims on the console pop off, there is a phillips screw in each corner, remove the screw, slide the console forward, lift up and flip over.
on the older one the console is released by sliding a putty knife or other blunt blade under the corners of the console to uncatch a clip, lift up flip over
  • ensure air tube is attached (water level sensor operates off air tube from bottom of drum to control body, (bottom is not loose or there is water all over the floor))
  • Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing (usually makes water level lower)
  • ensure wires are connected to control body.
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test
  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed - dont shock yourself on the cable connectors
  6. test, adjust, test adjust. (water level switch may need to be flicked hi-med & back to test adjustment
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
The water level switch body contains a small spring that is not really up to the job and stretches over years,
do this repair, on call, no parts, takes 15 minutes,, 3-4 times a month

Washing machine


remove the left and right edge trims on the control panel
remove the phillips screws under the edge trims
raise control panel ~1 inch and flip over backwards.
  • ensure air tube is attached( water level sensor operates off air tube from bottom of drum to control body, (bottom is not loose or there would be water all over the floor))
  • Blow any water out of the air tube, it should be empty when the washer is empty, water remaining in the tube messes up the pressure sensing(usually makes water level lower so doubt this is the fault)
  • ensure wires are connected to control body.
Kenmore pressure switches are adjustable, the adjustment is hidden.
An internal spring stretches over time and does not react properly.
to test whether just the adjustment is required,

  1. remove the water level knob from the front side of console
  2. depress the lock tab at the right side of water level sensor body where it contacts the back side of the console and rotate counter clockwise 45degrees
  3. withdraw water level sensor body
  4. adjacent to shaft for the knob is 1/8inch bolt head, turn clockwise to raise, counter clockwise to lower water level.
  5. washer can be operated with the console open and the level body removed just dont shock yourself on the cable connectors
  6. test, adjust, test adjust. (water level switch may need to be flicked hi-med & back to test adjustment
  7. if no effect replace water level sensor body
The water level switch body contains a small spring that is not really up to the job and stretches over years,

My kenmore top load washer wont stop filling....it flooded the house


Continious filling is usually 1 of 3 problems. 1 - a bad water level switch. or 2 - a bad water valve or 3 - your drain hose is pushed too far down into the wall (it should only go in about 6 " so it doesn't siphon the water right back out). The easiest way to tell which it is is to start filling the washer and then unplug it. If the water continous to flow, bad valve. If it stops a bad water level switch. Kenmore have 3 main ways to get to the water level switch. 1 - there are 2 plastic caps on either end on the front of the console (the parts where all the knobs and dials are) Pop these off and there are 2 phillips screws underneath. 2 - On the back of the console where it meets the top of the machine are 2 phillips screws. 3 - there are 2 clips under the console. Insert a putty knife between the console and the top of the washer in the front to pop the clips.
