I have a washing machine that starts to fill and then stops. Obviously i want to buy the correct part from you so I checked the resistance on the water inlet valve and it appears to be okay. i then looked for burnt connections on the control board-nothing. any other ideas on what to do next?
I see that the timer is what you show as next potential culprit. is there a way to test this or other parts with digital multimeter?
ANSWER Craig, The next check should be at the fill hoses and valve. If you haven't yet, check and clean the debris screens in the fill hose and inside the fill valve inlets. Then test the water level switch circuits 22002921 or 22002994 (depending on serial number) with the air tube disconnected. You would also want to blow in the end of the hose, this will clear any debris or sediment in the tube. If the control board doesn't see a change in the switch circuits on the pressure switch within a specific time, the control "assumes" the washer is flooding and shuts down. Also a resistance test is not as accurate as needed, you can get a proper resistance value, and the solenoid not lift the plunger in the valve body, and this washer is temperature controlled, it fluctuates the valves off and on the maintain a minimum water temperature, if there's a failed solenoid plunger, when the control cycles the power to the other solenoid, if it doesn't lift the washer will stop filling and then shut down after a few minutes. Yes, you can test all the components within this washer with a digital multi meter.
Using the wiring diagram and test information on the tech data sheet in the console, you shouldn't have any issues.
