Customer Question
What does a flood...

What does a flood valve look like on a washing machine?

Contractor's Assistant: What's the make and model of your washing machine? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

It’s a whirlpool duet and it’s 5 years old.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If we can, the breaker blew and now it won’t run. The add garment light comes on and it won’t start.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Where is the flood safety valve?

You do not have this on that unit. If it will not start at all you likely have a bad CCU board or blown Motor Control board causing that issue. Did you need more help?
