What is the test mode set for this model
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

I believe your referring to the diagnostics mode what are you wanting to test?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

I need to know what you are wanting to test to be able to tell you which diagnostics you need to run !

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
to make sure the machine is running properly Fill Drain Spin
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 1 year ago.

Ok the diagnostics just runs one component at a time it will not show you if something is wrong with the unit .

To make sure fill , drain and spin are working your best bet is to run a rinse and spin cycle or a rapid wash cycle.
