Question about Washing Machines
Hi, my washing machine doesent know when to stop taking in water!
The only way I can use it is to stand there and turn the water tap off once the drum is full, then turn water on again for rinses etc.
Without me on the water tap, it just lect in water at all times.
Is there a water sensor or something that I should check please?
At first thought it was door lock mechanism was at fault but proved it to be ok - removed rubber 'boot' which on this model was on two stretchable spring retainers and checked operation of door lock.
Thought door hinges may have been bent so dismantled door, finding the problem to be the pin that the door latch pivots on had come out on one side so not lining up properly. This was easily pushed back into position.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!
