Check the valve. maybe its a faulty valve.check the pump motor as well, this gives rise to the water. just wish that its not the circuit board because the circuit board costs a fortune.!

if you say that its been used 3 to 4 years, your in luck because the manufacturer have this 5 year warranty period right?

if you plan to have that replaced by warranty, just be sure that you still have the date of installation because this is what the guys ask for.

again, you said that the water is on, water valve is ok, then it all comes down to the pump motor.

Here could be two problems...The drain could be clogged, or the water pump could be bad. Or the belt that runs the pump is sliping or broken. [edit] Steps

  1. Fill washer with water and wait for the timer to get to the drain mode.
  2. Unplug the washer from the electric outlet.
  3. Open the case, and disconnect the water hose from the outlet of the water pump.
  4. If you get water pouring out from the pump, then plug that up and check the hose to the sewer. If that is clogged, then you have found the problem.
  5. Some washers have a self cleaning filter in that hose somewhere. Check that to be sure it is working properly.
  6. Reassemble hose from step 3.
  7. Plug washer back in. If it pumps out now, then you are done. If it doesn't, then the water pump is probably defective, so replace it.
  8. Reassemble washing machine case...you're done...

    • Unplug the washing machine while you are working on it to
      prevent injury from electrocution

    • Be prepared for water spilling on the floor.

Run the dishwasher through a test mode


Test Mode


Make sure the appliance is empty of water before running Diagnostics as it does not pump out before starting to fill and therefore you could overfill the appliance.
Open the door and set the program to the first program. (Normally rinse).
Turn the power off.
Press and hold the start button and while holding turn the power on.
After a little while the start button will flash, release the button.
Press the start button once and close the dishwasher door.
The machine will now run through a diagnostic routine.
Should take about 20 mins.
The machine will stop during diagnostics if an error is found and will display the error code. If no error is found it will complete the diagnostics and end the programme.

To exit diagnostics at any time just press and hold the start button till the programme is cancelled

The F7 error code(light flashes 7 times) is a one of these, Flow meter failure. Flow meter defect. Water inlet valve defect or water inlet hose blocked.
So what you need to check is if the correct water level is in the tub,to check that start d/w let it fill and once you longer hear water entering,open door and the water should be level or just above the heat element, if not enough water first check water pressure to inlet valve,if pressure is good replace the water inlet valve part # 8531671 it could be picked up from your local appliance parts store,or online at;

Water flow of filter too slow


When was the last time you changed the water filter? If the filter is clogged from long usage it will slow down the water flow. Filters should be changed 6-12 months.

Kenmore frontload, model 110.45872-400. water pump has been leaking ordered pump and replaced it myself. It seemed easy. plugged back in. Hook water supply back. turned on. It started like it was...


If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine, the valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.
OR
If the control has turned the water valves on, and after 8 minutes, the flow sensor has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off, and the error code will flash.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

Possible Causes / Procedure

• If there is no water in the unit:
- Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
- Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.
- Verify inlet valve operation.

• If there is water in the unit:
- Verify drain pump operation.
- Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected to tub
and pressure switch.

1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure switch, drain pump, flow meter,
and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check all hoses for possible leaks.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Verify pressure switch operation.
7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the part and measuring the resistance.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

Replace failed component.

Whirlpool icemaker stopped working


My icemaker has not worked for years. It has been so long I got used to not having ice. I have more time this month and decided to figure out the problem. I replaced the old water supply from copper tube to a 10 ft. stainless steel flexible tube from HomeDepot. This did not do anything. I saw somwewhere about using a blow dryer to the tube that dispense water into the ice tray. IT WORKED. My wife is happy.
