This is a problem associated with the machine/motor control assembly and/or the pressure sensor system. Either the machine/motor control assembly is at fault or it is sensing an error in the signal from the air pressure sensor circuit. Unplug the machine for half an hour or so to forcibly reset the machine/motor control assembly and eliminate the possibility of a simple electronic glitch.
Remove the three screws from the rear of the console assembly, if
unplugging the machine does not resolve the issue, then pull console
towards the front of washer to hinge it open and remove console. The
machine/motor control assembly is located on the right hand side of the
machine that is enclosed in a casing with a clear tube/hose connected to
The clear tube/hose is the pressure hose. Check to make sure that everything
connected to the machine/motor control assembly is properly attached and
fully inserted and the pressure hose has no air leak, kinks, or moisture.
Turn off the water supply to the washer and disconnect the hot and cold
water hoses from the rear of the washer then remove the end of the
drain hose from where it is installed. Remove the eight screws from the
rear panel and remove the panel.
Inspect the pressure hose for evidence of water then replace the hose
(part number 353244) if water or moisture is present. Inspect the air
dome hose connection port for lint or flashing.
Use a small round device
such as a small screwdriver to ensure that there is nothing blocking
the air dome outlet on the tub.
Replace the machine/motor control assembly (part number W10189966) if
and only if verified that there are no issues with the air pressure
system. Remove all the wire connections to the machine/motor control then remove
the screw holding it to the console tray. Two plastic legs on the rear
of the machine/motor control assembly are fitted into the console tray.
Lift the front of the control assembly to pivot it out from the console
tray. Reinstall the new machine/motor control assembly then secure it to
the console tray and reconnect the wire harnesses. NOTE: It is a good
idea to take note of the wire harness connections before disconnecting
them to prevent messing them up upon reconnection.
