Question about Washing Machines
When the cycle start the machine is supposed to be filling rather than draining. If the machine starts draining, that means that there is water remaining from the previous cycle, and that the pressure switch is defective.
Disconnect power and check if there is water in the tub before the cycle is starting.
If there is water, then the pressure switch is defective. Pressure switch is tested by jumping it or opening it and testing cycle. Test must be done by a technician.
If the pressure switch is OK, then the faulty part is the timer board. Draining at start of the cycle is quite unusual.
Also ensure that what you think is draining at start of the cycle is not just filling. In that case if the machine is not filling properly, the inlet valve and inlet lines must be tested.
Inlet valve is tested reading Ohms at valve solenoid contacts.If it reads infinite, then the valve is faulty.
