My washer does not clean well. it seems there is not enough water in the tub. In a large load there are dry spots on the clothes in the middle. Would this be the pressure switch or flow meter or both ?
Answer Tom, If you had an issue with the flow meter or pressure switch, you'd have an "error" code and the washer would would "shut down" and not operate. The washer only uses 6 to 7 gallons of water per fill cycle on average. If you remove the lower access panel, you should find the "Tech Data Sheet" on the left hand side of the cabinet, and can conduct the diagnostic test, and review the diagnostic error codes, and have a better idea of the issues with your washer. We'll send you some information that shoukld be helpfull. Thanks
Once in a while there is still water in the tub when you take out the washed clothes. Do you think this is the pump, sensor, or the control module?
Answer Hello Pat,
This is usually caused by foreign items and debris in the sump area. I'm referring to the area between the tub and the pump. This area has a filter cap that can be removed for quick access and easy cleaning on your model. The lower front access panel has to be removed to get to it but you're looking at a 20 minute job. Not a hard job at all.
Hi, I have been getting an LF code for months on my washer, have checked the hoses, connections. I don't want to pay someone to fix this if I can fix it myself. The repair guy we talked to says it is either the flowmeter or something else pressure switch maybe? Is there anyway to be certain one of these is the issue?
Answer Hello Sandy. LF is for long fill. Check and see if the cold and hot water flows good into the unit, and make sure the drain hose is not siphoning the water out into the drain pipe. Only about 6" of drain hose should be inside the pipe. If all is good, and the machine fills with water properly and does not overfill, then the flow switch W10110225 is the most likely cause. These are not hard to replace. Just remove the top of the washer and you will see it inline with the water valve. Release the clamps and install the new switch. Make sure the large round part is facing down toward the floor and is not sideways. Hope this helps.
Replaced the water pump still sm leak?
Answer Hello Carlos. You will need to check, when the water is coming in, and see where the water is leaking from. It could be the flowmeter W10110225, or any of the hoses. Hope this helps.
I can use a whole box of detergent and not get any suds, Why?
Answer Hi Don. What brand of detergent do you use ? This front loader uses the "He"- type of detergent that will need to be diluted to 1/3 of the normal amount needed ? Is the hot water side of the valve turned on ? Is the water valve inlet screen clogged ? Is the hot water incoming to the unit when selected ? The water valve is part # 8181694. There is a thermistor in the water valve body. It should ohm out at 2.3k ohms at room temperature. Is it showing any fault codes ? Thank You.
When I try to start the wash the door will not lock and it's shows DL in yellow letters
Answer Anna, The "DL" error code indicates a door lock issue. Mkae sure there is nothing blocking or sticking in the door laock area( cenetr of the lid and opening) make sure the lid hinges and lid itself are not loose or bent, and the lid is aligned properly with the top of the washer and the opening. If all's OK you will need to access the control board and check the circuitry and connections at the main control board. Good Luck and Thanks
