If the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out

of range (23°F to 217°F [-5°C to 103°C]) during the

water-heating step of the wash cycle.

NOTE: To find correct Ohm reading, refer to the

Temperature Sensor section, page 7.

Possible Causes/Procedure

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.

2. Check the water temperature sensor and the

connection to it, and also check for condensation.


heres the values of the temperature sensor.


32°F (0°C) 35.9 kΩ 35.9 kΩ

50°F (10°C) 22.7 kΩ 22.7 kΩ

77°F (25°C) 12 kΩ 12 kΩ

86°F (30°C) 9.7 kΩ 9.7 kΩ

140°F (60°C) 3.2 kΩ 3.2 kΩ

194°F (90°C) 1.3 kΩ 1.3 kΩ

212°F (100°C) 950 Ω 950 Ω


you need to test the ohms on the sensor.
