Re: Wash light is blinking

Main wash light flashing is a heating fault. You either have a faulty temp sensor (NTC) or blown heating element caused possibly by a blocked pressure chamber.

This machine from day one had an imbalance problem. Yes the shipping bolts have been removed. It has got to the point now that we see the machine getting closer and closer to our furnace which is 3 feet...

OK the washer is fine the problem is how the unit was inproperaly installed.

If your washer has spin sense please activate it by ...
Power on
Select wash cycle
Press and hold the spinsense button for 3 seconds
A beep will be heard and the spin speed display light will blink .
Spin sense will remain active untill you turn it off.

Put 5-6 full size bath towles in the washer.
Select quick wash.
When the washer is in the spin cycle...
Adjust each leg of the washer untill the washer smooths out.

If you have pedastals snug up the washer leggs to the pedastal then proceed as above.

Your washer came with a flat silver adjustment wrench to remove shipping bolts and adjust the leggs of the washer.

Washer powers down during wash cycles

It is most likely a very slow fill problem ,either the cold or hot water supply is restricted and the machine cannot sense the right water temp. and will shut down .

Machine cannot wash properly with a small amount of water.

Ckeck ,the screens in the water valve or at the hoses at the top where the faucets are ,clean them or replace them but never leave them out .
