Could poor suspension rods and or splines on the tub be the cause of water not dispensing into tub during wash cycle?
Answer Hello MJC. No, it is not likely. That leads toward a bad control board in the unit. You can lift up on the inner basket to see if the splines are moving up and down properly.
I moved my washer and there was a black mark on the floor like something was leaking also water had leaked out at some point and ran across the floor. I thought a seal may be bad but I noticed that the tub seems to move a lot. I has been getting off balanced frequently lately.
This issue sounds like the tub bearing may have gone bad and allowing the tub shaft to move around. For this issue you would either want to replace the bearing or replace the outer tub. The black that you are seeing would be from the bearing grease leaking. The outer tub is part number W10193886 and comes with the bearing and shaft. The bearings can be replaced separately by ordering part number W10435302 but will require a bearing tool which is part number W10447783.
My washer goes crazy with the UL code and the F1 code. It goes unbalanced even when empty and as soon as I start it water starts to fill then it stops and says F1. I tried running the diagnostic but it will just stop and say F1 or UL
Answer Hello Trinidad,
If your model number is 11027086604, I was able to pull up the tech sheet. Regarding the F1 fault code, it states:
Pressure Signal Out-of-Range
F then 1 flashes when the control detects an out of range pressure signal. ? Check pressure hose connection from tub to machine/motor control. Is hose pinched or kinked? ? If F then 1 repeats numerous times after POWER is pressed and the pressure hose connection is not pinched or kinked, replace the machine/motor control.
The ul code states:
uL is displayed when the machine/motor control detects an off-balance load, and is steady on while the washer runs a mini-cycle to rebalance the load. ? Display clears if mini-cycle successfully rebalanced the load. ? If the mini-cycle is unsuccessful, uL will flash until the door lid is opened, allowing the customer to view and redistribute the load.
Unit won't stay balanced and the tub makes a banging noise, (loudly), and then shakes bad till you shut it off. UL on screen.
Answer Hello Joel,
UL is the fault code for an unbalanced load. If the load is not adjusted and the control doesn't see the lid opened for the load re-distribution, the fault code will not reset. If the codes keeps coming up you should try running the diagnostic mode to see if there are any more codes. The procedure is laid out for you in the tech sheet which should be on the unit. It should be in a ziplock plastic bag affixed to the inside or the front of the cabinet.
