Question about KitchenAid KAWS850L Top Load Washer
I had a broken motor coupling in my kitchenaid top loader, so I replaced the coupling. I put the motor back in place, hooked up all cables, but it now will not fill with any water when I turn the timer to the start of a cycle. It will put water in the rinse cycle, but not in the beginning. It just immediatly begins to run the agitator. I replaced the water level switch, and checked the hose, but I am not sure where to go from here.
The timer and pressure valve or commonly know as the water level control shud be the problem....check them..
i hope this helps
Thank you for using Fixya

Check around the motor, it sound as if you may have pulled a wire loose somewhere.

i believe you have a lid switch issue..if you unplug machine and find the wires to the lid switch. you can connect the wire together..this will make it continue if its the proble. if it is make sure you secure them real good...

It appears your controller board 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
