If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water

entering machine, the valves will be turned off and the error

code will be displayed. OR If the control has turned the

water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow sensor has

detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has

not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be

turned off and the error code will flash.

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

Possible Causes / Procedure

¦ If there is no water in the unit:

-Make sure that both 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.

-Verify inlet valve operation.

¦ If there is water in the unit:

-Verify drain pump operation.

-Verify that the pressure switch hose is in good

condition and properly connected to tub and pressure


1. Verify there is not a siphon problem.

2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

3. Verify wire harness connections to inlet valves, pressure

switch, drain pump, flow meter, and Central Control

Unit (CCU).

5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.

6. Verify pressure switch operation.

7. Verify flow meter operation by blowing air through the

part and measuring the resistance.

any cycle.
