I'm sorry but you need to send the model number again it didn't come through, try putting a space between each number. the computer thinks its a phone number and wont let it through. thanks, Bryan

this stops at the drain spin ? have you checked the drain pump trap ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

yes i have checked and cleaned it in the past

but showed no improvment

okay is the door locked and the lock light lit at that time ? reach in and spin the drum by hand do you hear water sloshing under the drum ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

all the lights are blinking when it stops

some times it is full of h2o

and will flood the room

other times and usally not

but there is alway water under the drum

even when the cycle runs all the way through on

its own

the frusterating thing is you start a load come

back to put cloughts in the dry and it has stoped and not run its full cyle

okay gotcha ! so this will overfill at times ? thats a water level control issue. and this will also stop the machine if it thinks theres water still in the drum when it comes time to spin. this is located under the top and it part number 23 on this diagram. here a link to order it, this should fix your issue.

I did not try to run the washer with the switch not hooked up to see if water cam in when it was not soppose to

okay. well what I need you to do is just hook everything up and plug the washer is, let it sit for a while to see if any water comes in , Seeps in .I am concerned about the overfilling.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

As far as I can tell no water is entering the machine

I do not know if it over fills

It only spills out the door some times if it has stopped

before the rinse drain cycle is fiished

and I was foolish enough to open the door

wish I only did once I do not know if this has happened to my wife

okay , the only thing left that I can think of that would cause this issue is the CCU "central control unit" this is located under the top, theres not much else that could cause that issue. we don't like to jump right to that part however because its usually the pressure switch and the CCU is $102.00. heres a link to order that ,
