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.
