THE WATER WILL NOT FILL UP AND THE CYCLE STARTS BUT CUTS OFF AFTER 10 MINUTES
If no water is entering the washer, first check to make sure the water supply is actually turned on! I've had to service customers who had the cleaning people or other maintenance folks turn off the water. Next, check the float switch inside the tub. This tells the computer that there is no water in the tub and when the tub has enough water--If something gets trapped underneath, such as a fork, spoon, knife, or anything, it will lift the float and the washer will think water is already inside and not fill. It is a round, "flying saucer" shaped object located at the bottom of the tub, on either the left or right side. Gently lift up on it and CAREFULLY listen for a soft "clicking sound". The click is from a tiny switch on the underside of the washer. If the float is clear of objects, next check underneath the washer at the inlet water valve. This is an electric valve identified by the water line attached directly to it. There will be an electrical connector plugged in to it, and when activated, will have 120v applied. Remove the kick panel(cover at the bottom of washer under door) and carefully remove the connector from the valve. Set a wash cycle, then, using a voltage meter, check to see if 120v is present at the valve. If 120v is present, and you're sure the water is turned on, the valve is most likely defective. If there is *no* voltage at the valve, then the problem is most likely a broken wire or the main control board has a bad relay switch which is failing to send the power to the valve at the proper time.
