Hello, Thank you for using this service, I will be helping you with your problem today
Have you checked the balance switch on this ? # XXXXX on this diagram .
yes I tripped it by hand and got a U error code in the display, so I turned it off and back on again to clear the code
just looked didn't see one I have the 2 relays, float switch, lid lock, and balance switch
yes it locks the lid when I turn it on and gives a L code if it is not closed completely. I looked at the schematics, I'm not very good at that, and it seemed that the yellow/black wire coming from the transformer should have voltage on it instead of the gray one and also it seems like there shouldn't be any voltage on either one when the machine is off, which it has voltage on the gray all the time.
No the water valve doesn't work so I fill it manually with the supply hose and start the machine and pause it and refill to rinse
valve is bad, I've used it manually for some time, year and a half or so
It is, for a long time I couldn't figure out how to get to the valve and then I went and bought the manual which helped me do some things but I'm no electrical whiz and then I didn't want to spend a hundred for a valve so I just put it off.
in the morning is fine I've got to be gone early should be back around 10am if that works for you. Hope everything is ok
yes I'm here. I've done continuity checks on the water level control, it's ok and I checked for continuity on the spin cycle on the reversing relay both of those were ok as well as the basic ohm reading for the relay. I was just reading up on a self diagnostic control test when I got your message
the motor run relay doesn't appear to working correctly. I've checked the ohms they're about 620. I have constant voltage on the small terminal with the gray wires and I read the same voltage on the other small terminal with the yellow/black wire, but the relay doesn't close for the large terminals with the line voltage, and I tried two new ones yesterday but it made no difference
yes I have opened the file thanks
thanks for the file it has some stuff I don't have. Thanks for spending time to help me
well I found what it was, the connector at the back of the machine was partially connected just loose enough so that all the pins weren't making contact. when I wiggled it it started to work so I pushed on it hard and felt it click and it 's been working ever since. It started when I was trying to trace the yellow/black wire from the other small terminal on the motor run relay and couldn't find it coming up in the covered space between the washer and dryer. so if somebody has something similar in the future tell to be sure and check that connector at the back of the machine even if it looks like it's connected.
