sounds like you are having a syphoning issue. caused by having the drain hose too far down the home standpipe. very common problem. test..fill the machine, high water level. when it stops filling turn off. advance into spin/drain for just a moment and shut off. listen to hear water still going down the drain.
repair.. raise the drain hose nearer the top of the stand pipe. also do not tape/seal the hose into standpipe. it has to breath. good luck. kihm washing machine drain hose installation Google Search
Sounds like your problem is one of three things. Most common is that you have to "reset" the water level. This is done by turning the water level knob passed the large load size, and then down to small. Any time you want to go to a smaller sized load, you have to do this. Another possibility is that the pressure switch is bad, this is an easy fix (although not as easy as the reset) The switch can be purchased thru a local parts supply house. And the last thing could be a bad water valve. This will leak and continue to fill the washer after it is already full, this however is usually followed with water all over the floor. If it is not the reset, write me back and I'll walk you thru the other repairs. Hope this helps!
Hi, Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, your washer can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washer to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.
Some machines have a special lid-switch fuse near the lid switch, inside the control panel. If this fuse blows, the unit won't fill with water until you replace the fuse.
The "nf" code is a "no-fill" fault. This indicates that your washing is
not getting water supplied to it, or the pressure isn't substantial
enough to complete a fill. You need to, first, make sure the water
supply is turned on. Second, if the water IS turned on, and you're
still not getting anything to your washer, you may have a fill valve
problem. The fill valve is what both your hoses connect to on the back
of the machine. It can become clogged with sediment over time
(especially, if you have hard water or well water). Turn the water
supply off and remove both hoses from the back of the washer. Check
both these hose connections for clogs in the filter screens. If they
are clear, then more than likely the fill valve has gone bad. I hope
this helps you.
This is similar to a problem I had after my power suddenly went out while the washer was filling with water. When the power resumed the washer would no longer run water... all other systems (agitate, drain, spin) worked fine.
A 10 minute, $113 dollar service call revealed that there was a fuse inside the front upper left area that had blown. Remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the front panel to get access to the inside.
