Re: Water outlet Fault
You have accepted fellow expert dahaka's solution as acceptable. If not acceptable, our apologies. I have continued to research your problem.
I am unable to locate a free service manual download, however, I do know of some other possiblilites to check.
Is it possible that your outlet hose is blocked maybe slightly?
Read below for possiblities. Also please be sure that your pin trap is not blocked.
Good luck, and I will keep looking. Please change the rating if you are not satisfied!
If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.
Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

see the causes and remedies: Most dispenser problems are due to being gummed up with detergent,
fabric softner, bleach residue, and water deposits. First check the
dispenser drawer by pulling it out of the dispenser itself. To do this
push down on the tab in the back and remove. Check that all is
thoroughly clean. No holes blocked up. Now there are several types of
dispensers out there but most have holes in the top where it dispenses
hot or cold water to the appropriate area. These holes can become
plugged up. If you have really hard water I would say replace the
dispenser if it is gummed up bad. Otherwwise remove the dispenser
and thoroughly clean it out. Before doing this check the solenoids that
allow water through the dispenser. The solenoids can be checked with an
ohmeter but if all is clean and the solenoid does not open to allow
flow replace the unit or solenoid. Connect your ohmeter and refer to the
tech sheet or service manual for the proper reading. You can also check
for voltage going to the solenoid. If you have voltage when each
solenoid should be working, example: When the machine should be
dispensing fabric softner, The solenoid that allows water to flow
through that area should have voltage. If it does replace the solenoid or unit. see the diagram attached God bless you
Your problem is most likely the fill solenoids. Often, grit, sand and other 'stuff' in your water supply will cause the solenoids to stick open. To repair, pull the washer away from the wall, so you can access the area where your water hoses attach to the washing machine. Turn the water off. Disconnect the water hoses, allowing them to drain into a bucker. Identify the screws that go from the back of the washer into the item that the hoses attach to. Remove those screws and disconnect the hose(s) that go into the body of the washer. Remove the solenoid unit. Purchase a new solenoid. Reverse the removal procedure.
Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
check the filter basket that catches waste from the washup. Also follow the outlet hose ( usually winds through cupboards to the sink outlet. ) and see there are no kinks in it from articles being pushed against it. If these are OK it may be that ther outet valve is jammed and this will require a tech, as the whole casing will need removing
For the FAV6800A or FAV9800A: If you have no water flow to the Softener dispenser or Bleach dispenser see if you can turn the dispenser valves on Service Mode and verify water flow to the reservoirs. Enter Service Mode (page 14 of the Service manual) by Pressing Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys (simultaneously) for three seconds or until the console beeps. Now go to page 16 to Service Manual and enter Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. This will lock the lid. Now press the Wrinkle Control Key Pad on the console. The Control Board will send 120VAC to the Fabric Softener dispenser water valve. Did you hear the solenoid hum? If so we will now need to turn on the Cold Water Inlet Valve and see if water flows to the dispenser. Now press the Spin Only key this will turn on the Cold Water inlet valve after 5 seconds press the Offkey.The washer will unlock.Check to see if water did flow to the fabric dispenser reservoir.If you heard the Fabric dispenser valve hum then most likely 120VAC was applied to the solenoid.If water did not flow then the Fabric dispenser valve is stuck closed if you heard it hum.
The Bleach/Fabric dispenser water valve is an assembly and is not repairable you have to replace. Final technical troubleshooting as a technical owner of the machine would be to take my DVM and verify 120VAC from the Control Board to the Fabric dispenser solenoid. See page 36 lower left hand corner is the Bleach/Softener dispenser valve. Here is the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference. The Part Number for the Dispenser Valve is 25001043 you can order from this site or search the internet for best price try appliancezone.com…
You can remove the Fabric Softner to clean see page 33 of the Service Manual…Rich
maybe it's clogged take the drawer out and see if the water flows out of that side ok. put into rinsea nd spin and it should put water into that side.
might take a minute
What happens let me know
make sure you have a towel ready
Water floods the dispenser compartments at the start of the cycle to dilute/dissolve the softener, bleach, and detergent. The reason why water is in the compartment after the cycle is that, the detergent, the softener, and/or the bleach does not flow into the tub properly. It's either the dispenser assembly is clogged or excessive amount of detergent, softener or bleach is used. Clean the dispenser assembly and make sure to use no more than two tablespoons of powdered HE detergent or one-and-a-half ounces if liquid HE detergent.
Unscrew the two screws on the back of the top plate then pull it back then upward.
Pull out the dispenser drawer.
Unscrew the two screws then push the dispenser assembly out.
Unscrew the nut at the lower part of the dispenser.
Remove the four connectors from the valves.
Unscrew the two screws from the back of the cabinet.
Reinstall the dispenser assembly in reverse order.
Is water left in the dispenser at the end of the cycle?
About two tablespoons of water remaining in the dispenser compartment at the end of the cycle is normal. At the end of the wash cycle, fresh water automatically cleans the dispenser. Check that the cycle is complete before opening the dispenser drawer. Is the dispenser drawer clogged?
A clogged dispenser can block the flow of water through the dispenser and cause water to leak out. Manually remove the dispenser, and clean any leftover detergent or additives that could clog the flow of water through the dispenser. Also, check that the detergent drawer is always completely closed during the cycle. If the drawer is not closed completely, water can leak out onto the floor. Are the additives dispensing too early?
Here are a few things that can cause the additives (detergent, fabric softener or liquid chlorine bleach) to dispense early:
Check that the dispenser is not overfilled. Do not fill past the MAX fill lines on the dispenser. Overfilling can cause early dispensing of liquid chlorine bleach and/or fabric softener.
Check that the detergent separator is in the correct position. For liquid detergent, the separator should be in the front position. For powdered detergent, the separator should be in the rear position. If the separator is in the rear position while you are using liquid detergent, it will dispense immediately, which is not how it is designed to work.
Use powdered HE detergent when using the DELAY WASH option. Liquid detergent may dispense prior to the start of wash.
Are the additives dispensing too late?
The additives will not dispense until the proper time if the DELAY WASH option is selected.
My wife has been complaining that the bleach and fabric softener dispenser still had water in it after washing. After removing the top to the washer I found that there are 4 components to the dispenser. 1. the solenoid (part of a 3 solenoid bundle) for the cold water, 2 the controller to the solenoid 3. The hose from the solenoid to the dispenser, and 4. The dispenser. After checking that there were no kinks in the hoses. I checked the solenoid found it had power at the right time but the flow was low. I shut off all the water and disconnected the lines going into the back of the washer I found that the cold water filters were clogged. After cleaning them (there were 2 for each hot and cold) The washer worked correctly.
Problem fixed by removing the "restrictor" rubber washer on the cold water supply solenoid, this allows more water to flow.
Three wash runs so far with no problems.
The notched lever is for water direction control into the soap dispenser!
This suggestion is not too good. If your dispenser opens at the initial stages of the cycle, just a little - pour some water into the dispenser to wash down the detergent. (For my machine i can pull out the dispenser anytime during the wash, except when water comes into the dispenser, but even then i think the water enters the tub.)
For this you dont have to hang around the machine for long for it is in the initial stages of the cycle.
Later you hv to check the flow of water into the dispenser. Hv no idea how to do it; but i gave you a quick solution.
