Ok thank you. Please stand by and Ill look this up.

Just to clairify; the unit is starting to agitate before it fills with water? Or is it just not filling before it starts to agitate?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I would initiate the cycle and the machine would start to agitate and fill with water simultaneously.........Before when cycle was initiated, there would be a pause, then the water would start filling. Only after some water was in the tub would the agitating start. We have had the unit sine June 2009, normal 2 person household loads.
