Customer Question

I have a issue with this washer that has just started. I have cleaned the filter, checked the hoses, etc. as described in the trouble shooting section. However when you press start it locks the door pauses unlocks the door pauses and then relocks the door and begins to start but after a short 1-3 seconds of water fill it begins to start trying to pump water out until the pump shuts off. Any suggestions???

If it fills then drains this would suggest a faulty pressure switch and you would need to replace it to fix the issue.

It does not fill.

Okay it still can be the pressure switch. DO you have a multimeter?

yes

But why would the drain pump be starting?
Expert:  AppTech8579 replied 2 years ago.
The drain pump is getting signal that the unit needs drained. Test the pressure switch and water inlet valve for continuity.
