I continue to go get F20 error. Now what I have done is purchase a new pump then purchase a new water inlet valve from AppliacePartsPros.com what next? Thank you
Answer Hello William. The pressure switch is not tripped after 6 minutes. Water level is not reached within a
specific time (EEPROM parameter). This error code is only shown in Diagnostic test. Possible Causes/Procedure
- Check if the home has low water pressure; open the water faucets.
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Make sure that cold and hot valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.
- Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves.
- Check all hoses for possible leaks.
- Check if the customer used an aftermarket “no flood” hose. This can sometimes
stop the flow of water to the washer.
- Make sure that wire harness connections from Inlet Valves (cold and hot), Drain
Pump, Pressure Switch, & CCU (PR6, DP2 & VCH7 cavities connectors) are not
broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal pins are visible.
- Check the continuity between the following components:
A. Inlet valve connectors (cold and hot) to the CCU (VCH7 cavity)
B. Drain Pump & CCU (DP2 cavity) connectors
C. Pressure Switch & CCU (PR6 cavity) connectors.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, Main Harness must be replaced.
- Check the resistance of the Inlet valve in each port of the valve (cold & hot).
- Make continuity test to the Pressure SW. See page 8.
- Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good condition and properly connected
to tub and pressure switch.
- Check hose for possible leaks. Remove hose from pressure switch. Make sure
that the open part where the hose is connected doesn’t have debris.
- Check pressure switch operation. Remove pressure switch. Blowing air through
the opening, the two internal switches are heard one by one.
- Check for Suds.
- Verify there is not a siphon problem.
- Make sure that all the connectors are fully seated.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the unit operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle. See page 5.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect power
and wait for 15 seconds.
My Whirlpool top load washer works great but the water wont shut off. It has flooded my laundry room. I have tried all settings. Help!
Answer Hello Shantelle,
If the water won't shut off, there is a simple test you need to perform to determine what component is at fault. Start the unit and allow it to begin filling. Unplug the unit. If the water doesn't stop running in, the water valve has failed and will require replacement. If the water stops coming in, the issue is either a clogged pressure switch hose or the pressure switch has failed and will require replacement.
