Question about Whirlpool AWM6140 Front Load Washer
All washing machine perform a drain cycle before any wash - that's just the norm geoff.
I'm assuming you'll be getting an F1 fault code
Sounds like the inlet solenoids have gone. get your multi meter on the solenoids - the readings should be around 3.4kOhms - 4.4kOhms
If this proves ok then you'll need to do a 'live test' on the power going to the solenoids at the start of the cycle. (Take all precautions so as not to give yourself a shock) you'll expect a reading of 180-230v
If the resistance across the solenoids are between the given values and you're getting power to them then the fault lies with the water supply.
If there is no power going to the solenoids at the start of a programme then you need to check wiring back to the CCU for continuity. If the continuity proves ok then you'll need to replace the programme timer mate
