Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (4 to 6 inches maximum). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped. Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

Read your user manual - but I would suggest that you may not have setup the balance properly. Check the level of the machine and adjust to be as square as possible by adjusting the feet at the bottom. If the water isnt coming in on both hot and cold sounds like a common problem - perhaps the water level sensor is playing up or something else has been knocked during transportation of the machine when you moved house. Check your user manual for troubleshooting. Sounds dumb, but check that 'delay start' isnt selected also. check both hoses filters are not blocked.

Hi just read your posting.Now the error code you have is error code 132,this means you have a single current trip error.This means the wiring to the motor and rotor position senor are faulty or one of the 3 phases on the motor is open circuit, or your motor controller is faulty. Do you have, or can borrow an electrical test meter ?To find the exact cause I can guide you throe the steps to test the machine if you have a test meter.Please reply for further help.

It sounds like there's a problem in the water inlet system. The machine repeats the process several times because of the Restart Feature which retries starting the machine to correct the problem. The machine completely stops and sounds the alarm because the Restart Feature failed to correct the problem. The fault code is indicated as a series of flashing Wash Progress LEDs.

Indicate explicitly which among the Wash Progress LEDs are lit or flashing to determine what and where the problem really is for further troubleshooting.

You may continue communicating with the expert as long as you need assistance regarding the issue stated herein.

Ok - your code is 50 indictes a faulty hot water valve - question - have connected the hoses correctly - as per your descriptions - it should always be cold 1st then hot water- cold - then hot etc until it fills.

Pays to check this as the fault code is totally opposite to what your saying..

Washing machine wil not fill - tries several times then stops and all lights except 4 go out


That would be the balance switch, should be located rear right under the main board. over time the switch becomes jamed in the on position and the machine always thinks its off balance. $4 to $10 for a new one.

The out of balance micro-switch is faulty/corroded. This switch is located under the motor control module on the right of the machine and is activated by a plastic lever that goes down beside the outer tub. Replace the micro-switch.
