Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name isXXXXX will be helping you with your appliance issue today.
Did he check the water valve itself in the washer for power?
Bryan.....I am getting hot and cold. It almost seems to me that the "sense" is not reading properly, thus it does not fill properly
This is the "smart washer, no real agitator, lo water consumption" I miss my noisy thumping agitator with the bad bearings
1.Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in
with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes
Clean or Done indicator on).
2. Select any one button (except POWER, START,
STOP and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps
below, using the same button (remember the
a. Press/hold 3 seconds.
b. Release for 3 seconds.
c. Press/hold 3 seconds.
d. Release for 3 seconds.
e. Press/hold 3 seconds.
? If this test mode has been entered successfully,
all indicators on the console are illuminated for
5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated
Time Remaining two-digit display.
? If indicators do not display as described above,
the press/hold/release procedure above may not
have been performed within the time frame
necessary for successful entry. Repeat step 2 to
ensure this was not the cause. If still
unsuccessful, see Diagnostic: Unsuccessful
Entry, page 1.
3. The program then checks for saved fault codes:
? If there are saved fault codes, see Diagnostic:
Saved Fault Codes, page 2.
? If there are no saved fault codes, all indicators
on the console will momentarily turn off, then
turn back on with 88 displayed. After 5
seconds, the Automatic test, below, begins. See if it works the same on yours and let me know, thanks, Bryan
Thanks, but this is very different. There is only 1 button on front, it is power/pause/lock. One bit of info I found was to hold it in for 10 seconds to do a reset, but nothing changed. There is no display, just "sense,wash,rinse,spin,done,lock" LEDs.
If you think of anything, let me know. I guess I'll get A&E factory service back out, let them swap more parts.
I'm in the electronics biz, and know that "stuff happens". I am a little surprised by Whirlpool, they would not even agree to give me a month's extra warranty since it hasn't worked from day one.
Hello, my name is Dave. The control has the pressure switch built into it so if it was replaced you have already done all that you can as far as the washer goes. They do use very little water and another service call will not help. It will only fill up to about the top of then impeller. Here is a trick that will help with the rinsing. Set the fabric softener button to "Yes". This will cause the washer to fill up higher in the rinse cycle and the clothes will rinse much better. Also make sure you cut back on detergent and only use HE detergent. Hope this helps you out.
Ok, thanks. Check the drain hose. Make sure it goes up as high as the washer lid and then the end only goes down into the drain pipe about 4". Let me know what you find.
