SOURCE: Clean light flashing
The clean light should be blinking 7 times, pause, then repaeat if it is doing this -- it is a water heating fault. Use one of the following key dances to clear fault a) Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal b)High Temp-Air Dry-High Temp-Air Dry All the Leds should light up now just press cancel and Unit should operate. If it shuts down again the heater isnt working properly. Some times the door doesnt get shut well and that causes the fault. But the dishes arent very clean if the heater is not working.

The outlet of the drain hose must be higher than the water level inside the tub--normally the pump inside removes the water when needed. Get a plumber to install a proper height drain pipe for you.

SOURCE: my washer tub will not
Hello, Welcome to FixYa.
Here`s what I find is most common when dealing with the symptom you`ve described.
I'd suspect the drain hose is lying down on the floor or is pushed down into the stand-pipe too far.
If the drain hose is below the water level entering the washer it will siphon out immediately. The drain hose must be above the highest point the washer has to fill, ( refer to your manual, but it is typically recommended to be about "48 to "60 in height )
Also if it is in a stand pipe insure it isn't pushed in too far, just a few inches and then secure it without completely covering over the opening or that too will cause it to siphon.
Check your drain hose. Let me know if this was indeed the case and if so please rate the solution accordingly. If not we can move forward from there.
Thank's for coming to FixYa and good luck.

I had a similar problem ... mine was related to a hole in the pressure switch hose (code E22). Inside the washer, there is a pressure switch that senses how full the tub is. It does so using air pressure at the bottom of the tub -- air hose gets "pushed on" by the filling water and causes a pressure spike the switch. If you develop a leak in the air hose, the pressure switch never gets exhausted. There is a safety feature that engages if the water runs for more that 8 minutes without the pressure switch engaging. E22 is one of the codes related to this event. Easy way to see if this is an issue is to run a diagnostic test.

Test T02 will show you the most recently encountered codes.
