simultaneously with the power OFF.
Publication # apWF409 Revision Date 11/10/11
Service Mode:
This mode allows more detailed operation tests and troubleshooting, to enter press: Signal & Extra Rinse
simultaneously with the power ON.
While in Service Mode the following tests can be performed:
1. All LED’s light up and the washer beeps as it
enters the Quick Test Mode.
2. The unit displays the software version for a
second then clears the EEprom.
3. After the displaying the software version, LCD
will display Model information. If EEEE is displayed the PCB ass’y is defective.
4. When the version is displayed, turn the Jog-Dial
one click CCW to show 0058. Press the following
keys to test the various components

test in this order: Cold Main, Bleach, Cold Main &
Bleach for Fabric Softener, Hot, then off.
Press Spin to test Door Lock/Unlock circuit.
Press Signal to test Drain Pump
EEPROM Clear Check
Power off, Press Delay Start, Signal and Power Key at
the same time. Good = Good Fail = FaiL
All memory will be cleared, including Fault Codes
This should be done when a new Main PCB is installed
Quick Spin Test: Press Delay Start & My Cycle
This accelerates the drum motor from 0 to maximum RPM over a
few minutes. Note: Stay with the washer during this test as
out of balance detection is bypassed and the door may not
lock.
Press the Start/Pause button during the test to hold its spinning
speed for 10 minutes before going back to Quick Spin Test
Mode.
Cycle Count: Press the Signal button to see how many times
the unit was used

Check for any leakage on the base, Hose, Valve and Tub connections and take any required action. This can also be a heater out of
place.
During natural draining, this error occurs because the drain bellows are clogged with foreign material. Remove the foreign material.

or damaged. The drum might be overloaded from too many
clothes or the relay or PCB might be defective.
Check the water valve wiring harness.

This can be a short or a wire disconnected to the heater circuit. This
can also be problem with the tub contacting the heater or if the water in the tub is frozen or there is no water. The error is triggered by
temperatures above 145C. If the heater has no error, this occurs
because of a PBA relay malfunction. Check the wiring harness to
the heater.

Water is supplied continually because the water level detection
does not work. - Verify the drain is working properly, the water level
detection does not work and water is supplied continually. Verify the
water valves shut off fully. Finally check the water level sensor.

The washing heater temperature sensor in the tub has an error.
Check the connections for the washing heater temperature sensor
connector.

This occurs when too much foaming is detected. It is also displayed
while foaming is removed. When the removal is finished, the normal

Check whether the washing machine is level to the floor with respect to the original position of the washing machine prior
to service. Doing this now will reduce the need for a redo call and customer dissatisfaction.
✔ Vibrations can shorten the lifetime of the product.

When using non-HE
detergents, or using
too much detergent
for the water hardness and soil level of
the clothing, over
sudsing will occur.
When this happens
there will be leaks out
of the detergent
drawer and door.
Please advise consumer of proper detergent usage.
Location considerations
It is normal for a small amount of water
to remain in Detergent Drawer after it
completes washing. Bleach is usually
flushed out into the tub at the beginning
of the washing. Also, its compartment is
washed again during the following rinse
cycle, removing any remnants.

Do not install washer in
areas where water may
freeze. Washer will
always maintain some
water in its water valves
pump, and hoses. ICE
formation can cause
damage these and other
components. Operating
temperature should be
above 60°F/16°C.
NOTICE
The unit sometimes will pause during Sanitize, or Pure Cycle, wash modes and appear not to be functional. The Sanitize and Pure Cycle wash cycles have target temperatures to assure washer performance. If the water temperature
doesn't meet the target temperature during the wash cycle, the washer will automatically add extra time to allow the
heater to bring the water up to the programmed, or target temperature. In this stage, the displayed time will pause and
hold until the heating operation has been completed. It is at this point that the customer may feel that operation has
stopped. (The maximum added programmed time is 30 minutes)
