Question about Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
Possible that the timer is faulty, the water pump is defective or the failure of the valve or voltage switching of the driver. Remove the panel and check if there is any connection that would have got cut off, some times rodents can casue this to happen. if so connect with the same wire colours and insulate. The cut offf is happening because the function is not going through, hence it willbe better to check for the switch on drive of the main motor, the exhaust valve and teh exhaust pump. test them one by one, test teh voltage across the valves the pump to confirm. replace and test. Helful I guess. Good day

Opening door while spining should stop the machine. Since no water comes in, the agitate stage will not work even when the timer will be on this spot. Check first the filters on the inlet water line (both sides). Then, if problem still exist - check that the inlet water valve works(it is an electromagnet valve, located at the pipe's entrance to the machine)). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and doesn't work - You can easily open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace it for a new one. Good luck !

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
