I'm not getting water to my unit: MDB9150AWW. Float switch is down and not stuck. Checked continuity of switch. Switch is closed when float is down. Switch opens when float is up. I am assuming that first part of cycle is fill-up. Machine is quiet for first few minutes, then pump starts. I am getting zero voltage across the water valve solenoid, with the float switch up or down. I get zero voltage across the switch with it up or down. I have stroked the hand cutoff valve under my sink. I put 110V straight to the water valve. Water valve opened, and water flowed into the tub. Partially filled tub and started a cycle. Machine sounded normal when pump came on to circulate water. It appears to me that the control card is not sending voltage to the water valve. Could it be something else?
ANSWER Hi Wade. Look at the wires under the door and see if they have been damaged or chewed open. This is a common issue during the fall and winter months. Make sure the wires are tight in the junction box and on the fill switch. Make sure the float is freely going up and down and staying on the float switch lever. If you have lost the voltage then back up to the control board and use the supplied wiring diagram to see if the #5 pin connector has 120 vac output to the float switch part 99002560. Thank You.
