My washer starts to fill and then stops, hums, and then I get the LF Trouble code flashing after about 5 mins of humming. Once I get the tub to fill after turning off and on like 10 times, it will run ok through the wash cycle, but then does same thing when it comes time to rinse. I need to test the inlet valve to see if it is faulty, but I need to know what Ohms it should read if good and what ohms if bad. If it is not the inlet valve, then some say it's the controller, so how do you test that as well with a multimeter??
As far as testing the control board you can only test for voltage out. If there is voltage going to the valve then the board is good. The first suggestion would be to check the inlet screens on the water valve to ensure that they are not clogged. If the screens check ok, then you will want to check the valve. The valves should have a resistance of 790 to 840 ohms. If there is power getting to the valve though it is likely the valve is bad or the inlet screen is clogged.
How do you remove top to replace water valve on Maytag MVWb300WQ1?
Answer Hello Joey. On the front corners under the top, there are clips. Use a flat blade putty knife and release those clips by pressing in on them and raise the top and lean it back.
I have changed my water inlet valve and I can hear the water running but my machine is not filling up do I have the hoses hooked up wrong
If the water is running but the unit is not filling then you will want to make sure that the drain hose is not pushed too far down into the standpipe. If this is the case it would cause a siphoning of the water out of the unit.

Answer Hello Hillbilly. We will need your model number to help you with this. Please call 1-877-477-7278 or post your model number with a new question on the parts page. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/modelnumber_locator.aspx
I changed the water valve and I reconnected everything back in place but when I turn the washer on everything seems to be working but then no water is coming into the washer.
Answer Hello Aura. You need to check and see if the water is turned on coming to the unit. Sometimes, we forget to do this after replacing a valve. If the water is on, then check and see if there is power to the water valve. If there is no power, you will need to check the pressure switch on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How solenoids come off?
Answer Hello Steven. Sorry, you must replace the valve assembly W10364988 to change the solenoids. They do not remove.
I'm getting the of error and have checked hoses, filters and drain line. Will replacing this valve most likely
fix my problem.
Answer Chris, There should be an additional code displayed( ie. F0-E2, F0-E4, etc.) The E code would help pin point the issue. As long as your water temperatures are correct, in the wash and rinse cycle, then check and make sure there are no kinks or clogs in the air tube from the control to the connector on the side of the tub. The F0-E5 code would indicate and issue with an off balanced load. You would want to check the wiring harness between the RPS sensor on the motor and the main control board for loose connections first, then replace the sensor W10178988 if all's OK.
