When the door is open when I press the on/off button the unit starts to drain. What part could be the problem?
ANSWER Hello Scott,
Turn the power off to the unit and remove the water inlet valve. There is a flood switch in the bottom of the unit just behind the water inlet valve. There will be water in the bottom of the unit that will need to be cleaned out. Be careful not to damage the styrofoam float used for the flood switch! Once this is done, the water inlet valve 00425458 is normally what causes this issue to occur. When the valve doesn't fully open, the water splatters from the fill assembly in the upper left hand side of the lower machine compartment. When the flood switch is activated, the only thing the unit is able to do is drain out.
