All three coils have 1200 ohms. Power going to valve is only 106 VAC and valve won't open. New valve won't open either. Is the voltage below the minimum specs for this valve to operate, and if so, does this mean the control board is bad?
The voltage is lower than it is supposed to be. The voltage should be 123 vac plus or minus 10%. If lower than this it would cause an issue with the valves not opening. You will want to check power into the unit and make sure that minimums are being met. If so then the control board would be the issue.
Water will not go into my machine. It's not the door Latch.
You will want to check the screens on the water valve inlet to make sure that they are not clogged and make sure that there is water coming through from the home supply. If this checks ok then you will want to check the valve for 120 vac when the unit is calling for water. If there is not power getting to the valve then the control will be at fault and if there is power then the valve is faulty.
Washer fills up to start when it calls for more water it hums no water comes in washer. Could this be water valve?
Answer Hello Tina. It could be the water valve. You will need to test and see if there is power to the valve and no water. If so, replace the water valve on the unit.
My front load washer is filling up with water while not running. Is this an easy fix?
The water entering the machine while being in the off position would most likely be caused by a faulty water valve 5221ER1003A. To replace the water valve you will first unplug the unit and shut off the water supply. Disconnect the hoses going to the water valve. Remove the 3 screws at the top back that are holding the main top in place and slide main top back slightly and lift off. Remove the hoses inside that connect to the water valve. You will want to mark them or go ahead and attach them to the new valve so that they are connected to the proper ports. Remove old water valve and install the new one and reassembly. Reconnect power and hoses and turn water on.
