Machine fills while idle
A very likely cause of this is an inlet solenoid water valve inside of the machine is leaking. The risk is if left unattended the water will over fill and end up on the floor. Secure the inlet valves where the hoses connect to the wall. Make sure that the valves are closed.
This repair requires an experienced technician to replace. The parts are readily available. To use the machine supervision of the wash process is required. The solenoid vales in the machine can not be trusted and you should assume that they may fail allowing water to overfill at an increased rate.
At this point when ever the machine is not in use the vales need to be closed. If the solenoid valve has leaked even once it can not be trusted.
Problem with khws01pmt door lock
Without knowing more about why it is stuck, it should be an electric lock so unplug it and wait a minute. it should open but that won't help you find out why it stuck to begin with so the problem isn't fixed.
I'm getting an F2 code on my Kitchaide front load
F2 on this unit is long drain. Take the front lower cover off (3 screws on the bottom) and you will see a round white cover about 4 inches round. That is the pump clean out. Before you twist that cap off be aware the water will come out have some towels ready. Take the cap off and you will see all the junk in there remove it and replace the cap. Thats it good luck..
We have the same problem. I have recently found out that this is a widespread problem because some of the water is unable to drain with these washers, therefore causing mildew. There is a lawsuit pending which I am going to join in on. For now, keep the door to washer open when not in use and periodically run a cycle with vinegar. It gets rid of the mildew. Good luck.
