I have hooked everything thing up with the new water valve but now I have no power to my washer. I have checked the outlet with a lamp and the washer was turning on (although it was leaking out the back) before the repair. Any reason I shouldn't have power?
Answer L G,
You will want to check the noise filter that the power cord plugs into and make sure that there is 120 vac going into it and 120 vac coming out. If there is power in but not out then the filter is faulty and would need to be replaced. If there is power in and out then test the main control board to make sure that there is power getting to the board. If there is then the main board would be the issue and would need to be replaced.
Where does the blue wire plug in at for this?
Answer Hello. One end attached to the thermistor of the valve and the other end into the control board.
How do you replace the water valve on this model?
Answer Hello Jermaine. You need to unplug the unit. then remove the console from the unit. Now, unplug the wires for the valve and remove the screws. Then use a putty knife to release the top panel clips in the front and lift the top panel to access the hoses under the top. Remove the hoses from the valve and remove the valve from the unit. Install new water valve in reverse order.
