Question about KitchenAid KHWS01PWH Global Horizontal Axis Washer
Hi welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Let's try a little water valve flushing routine to see if we can't get the washer to "Snap out of it."
Turn off both water supply hoses at the wall connection. Remove just one hose and place the wall end of the hose in a bucket. Select a warm wash cycle and let the water back-flush into the bucket. Only turn on the faucett that still has a wall connection. Use the handle of a hammer and GENTLY tap on the water valve hose connections. When the bucket is about 1/3rd full stop the fill cycle. Connect the hose you first removed. Turn off the wall connection for the first hose that was still connected to the wall. Remove that hose and place the 2nd hose wall end in the bucket. Again start a warm wash fill cycle again tapping the hose connections of the water valve with the handle of a hammer until the bucket is 2/3rds full. Reconnect the hose and turn on the water. Do a normal wash checking to see if the filling with water at the end of the cycle routine repeats. If it does NOT repeat good job. If it does repeat then unplug the unit and see if the water continues. If it does the water valve will have to be replaced. If it stops you will need to find out why you have power to the water valve at the end of the cycle.
The objective here is to losen the piece of debris that is stuck in the diaphram of the water valve. The procedure above works about 70 % of the time if it is a small piece of debris.
Thanks fo choosing FixYa.
