Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now.

Do you hear the fill valves energize and if you select HOT or COLD only do you not get water with either?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no the valves dont energize and no water passes through.
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

OK do you have an ohm meter to check the valves to see if they are burned out?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yeh can do what should it read?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Unplug the plugs to them and they should read around 60 ohms each with an ohm meter somewhere around there..if either are burned open it will not allow water to fill.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there are four of them and they all tested the same
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yep they are good so if you are getting that code tip the machine up and check the pump for any leakage as well.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there has been no leakage out the bottom of the machine at all?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Just make sure the pump does not look corroded....if not replace the main board on the unit.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the way the machine looks it looks as though the water goes into the valves and then into the bowl, it doesn't go to the pump until your draining it?
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

YEs that is correct, but the board reads the pump I just want to be certain the pump looks good that is all.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
pumps not coroded it has a plastic impellar
Expert:  Appliance Guru replied 1 year ago.

Yep good then replace the board in the console for that error, that is a common issue on that unit.
