Due to recent freeze had to replace water control valve and mother board due to water spraying up under the control panel cover. Have replaced both parts but when you start the washer after about a minute of running it throws a F1 error code. What is this code.
The F1 is an indication that the pressure signal is out of range. You will want to check the pressure hose connection from the tub to the machine control board and make sure that the hose is not pinched, kinked or clogged. If this checks ok then the issue is in the control board.
The washer makes loud clicking/buzzing, rumbling sounds when the pump begins to empty water from the tub during the wash and spin cycle. There are no leaks or any fluid dripping from the unit. Any ideas?
Based on the description it sounds like the bearings in the drain pump W10536347 may be going bad. You will want to check the pump to make sure that there are not clogs in the pump that would cause it to run hard or cause it to bind.
Can you send me the instructions to install this part on my washing machine so I can determine if I can do it or if I need technical help? The problem is both hot and cold water get to back of washer but only hot gets into washer. Cold inline filter is not cloged or dissloged. Doc
Answer Hello Doc,
The first thing you do is unplug the machine and turn the water supply faucets off. Loosen the three screws across the back of the control panel and flip the control panel up and out of the way. (Don't let it hang by the wires). You can disconnect the harness to the panel if you can remember to reattach it during re-assembly. Now you are looking straight at the water valve. Unscrew the hoses from the valve and make sure you don't mix them up. You can mark them if need be. Wrap a piece of tape around one of them before you remove them and remember which side the taped one goes on. Unplug the wires from the valve and note the length. They are easy to remember as they have to be manipulated to install them in the wrong positions.
Now, using a paint scraper or putty knife, raise the washer top to gain access to the dispense hoses. Take a picture of these with your cell phone for re-assembly reference. After you have removed the hoses, raise the top and there should be a screw holding the valve assembly in place. Removal of this screw should free up the valve for removal.
From this point it's a matter of re-assembly in the reverse order.
