SAFE SERVICING PRACTICES - ALL APPLIANCES
To avoid personal injury and/or property damage, it is important that Safe Servicing
Practices be observed. The following are some limited examples of safe practices:
1. DO NOT attempt a product repair if you have any doubts as to your ability to
complete it in a safe and satisfactory manner.
2. Before servicing or moving an appliance:
• Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet, trip the circuit breaker to the
OFF position, or remove the fuse.
• Turn off the gas supply.
• Turn off the water supply.
3. Never interfere with the proper operation of any safety device.
4. USE ONLY REPLACEMENT PARTS CATALOGED FOR THIS APPLIANCE.
SUBSTITUTIONS MAY DEFEAT COMPLIANCE WITH SAFETY
STANDARDS SET FOR HOME APPLIANCES.
5. GROUNDING: The standard color coding for safety ground wires is GREEN, or
GREEN with YELLOW STRIPES. Ground leads are not to be used as current
carrying conductors. It is EXTREMELY important that the service technician
reestablish all safety grounds prior to completion of service. Failure to do so will
create a hazard.
6. Prior to returning the product to service, ensure that:
• All electrical connections are correct and secure
• All electrical leads are properly dressed and secured away from sharp edges,
high-temperature components, and moving parts
• All non-insulated electrical terminals, connectors, heaters, etc. are adequately
spaced away from all metal parts and panels
• All safety grounds (both internal and external) are correctly and securely
connected
• All panels are properly and securely reassembled

conform with local codes and ordinances
and the latest edition of the National Electrical
Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.
For your safety the information in
4. Carpenter’s level.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
CIRCUIT - Individual, properly polarized and grounded
15 amp. branch circuit fused with 15 amp. time delay
fuse or circuit breaker.
POWER SUPPLY - 2 wire, with ground, 120 volt, single
phase, 60 Hz, Alternating Current. NOTE: Because of
potential inconsistent voltage capabilities, the use of this
washer with power created by gas powered generators,
solar powered generators, wind powered generators or
any other generator other than the local utility company
is not recommended.
OUTLET RECEPTACLE - Properly grounded 3-prong
receptacle to be located so the power supply cord is
accessible when the washer is in an installed position.
this manual must be followed to minimize the risk
of fire or explosion or to prevent property damage,
personal injury or loss of life.
-Do not store or use gasoline or other flammable
vapors and liquid in the vicinity of this or any other
appliance.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU SMELL GAS
· Do not try to light any appliance.
· Do not touch any electrical switch; do not use any
phone in your building.
· Clear the room, building or area of all occupants.
· Immediately call your gas supplier from a

equipment grounding conductor can result in a risk of
electrical shock. Check with a licensed electrician if you
are in doubt as to whether the appliance is properly
grounded.
1. The washer MUST be grounded. In the event of
malfunction or breakdown, grounding will reduce the
risk of electrical shock by a path of least resistance
for electrical current.
2. Since your washer is equipped with a power supply
cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a
12
grounding plug, the plug MUST be plugged into an
appropriate, copper wired receptacle that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances or in the absence of local codes,
with the National Electrical Codes, ANSI/NFPA 70
(latest edition). If in doubt, call a licensed electrician.
DO NOT cut off or alter the grounding prong on the
power supply cord. In situations where a two-slot
receptacle is present, it is the owner’s responsibility
to have a licensed electrician replace it with a properly
grounded three prong grounding type receptacle.

Control
The control is mounted to the back of the console. The
control:
1. Provides power to the dispenser solenoids, wax
motor, door lock solenoid, drain pump and speed
control board.
2. Sends signals to the speed control board to tell it
what program to run and the heater control board to
control the heater.
3. Checks the status of the door switches, door light

a stepdown transformer that reduces the voltage from
120 Volts to 12 Volts.
Drum Light Assembly (On select models)
The drum light assembly is made up of a 12 volt AC, 5
watt light that is embedded in the bellows,
A circuit in the electronic control turns the light off when
the door is left open for more than three minutes.
Door Switch Assembly
The door switch assembly, located behind the front panel,
is a safety feature that prevents the washer from operating
when the door is open and locks the door in the spin
cycle.
50
The door lock assembly is made up of a coil, door switch,
switch actuator, locking fork, wax motor, auxiliary switch
and spin lock arm.

The pressure switch is mounted to the right side panel
under the top of the washer and controls the water level

Auxiliary
Contacts
Contact
Coil
Wax Motor
When a cycle is selected and the start pad is touched,
the control board applies power to the coil. The magnet
field of the coil pulls the locking fork down and tries to
pull the contacts of the door lock switch closed. If the
washer door is open, a tab on the switch actuator prevents
the contacts from closing and the locking fork will not
allow the door to be closed until the stop pad is touched,
removing current from the coil. When the washer door is
closed, the door strike pivots the switch actuator out of
the way allowing the magnetic field of the coil to close
the contacts of the door lock switch and the locking fork
locks the door. The wax motor and spin lock arm are
used to prevent the door from being opened while the
spin basket is still spinning. Power is applied to the
wax motor when the washer is in spin. When power is
applied to the wax motor, it expands its piston within 30
to 40 seconds driving the spin lock arm between the
locking fork and the switch actuator holding the locking
fork down. At the same time, the piston closes the door
lock auxiliary switch allowing the washer to go into spin.
When power is removed from the wax motor, it takes
about 90 seconds for the wax motor to cool down and
retract the piston, pulling the spin lock arm back away
from the locking fork and auxiliary switch . This provides
enough time for the spin basket to slow its rotation down
to the wash speed before the door could possibly be
opened.
51
The pressure switch is made up of a single pole double
throw switch, but only contacts 1 and 2 are used. The
contacts are controlled by a bellow inside a sealed
chamber. The chamber is connected by a hose to the
air bell located at the bottom of the washer attached to
the drain boot. L 1 is applied to the pressure switch, by
the control. If the water level is below 1/2 inch from the
bottom of the spin basket, contacts 1 to 2 of the pressure
switch close applying power to one side of the (3)
solenoids of the water valve assembly. The other side of
the solenoids is connected to neutral by a relay contacts
on the control board. When the cycle calls for water,
depending on the water temperature selected and the
increment of the cycle, the control board connects one
or two of three the solenoid coils to neutral activating the
water valve solenoids. When the corrected water level is
reached contacts 1 and 2 open, signaling the control to
remove neutral from the solenoids.
Electronic Water Level Sensor:
The electronic water level sensor is mounted to the right
side panel under the top of the washer and controls the
water level in the washer.
The electronic water level sensor is made up of an
electronic board and a bellow inside a sealed chamber.
The chamber is connected by a hose to the air bell
located at the bottom of the washer attached to the drain
boot. The electronic board reads the pressure in the
bellow and converts it into an electronic signal. This signal
is then sent to the control board which governs the
incoming water by connecting or disconnecting a neutral
line to the water solenoids.
The hot solenoid is connected to the incoming hot water.
The wash and bleach solenoids share a common input
cavity that is connected to the cold water supply.
The hot and wash solenoids share a common output
cavity, with the bleach solenoid having a separate output
cavity.
Water Inlet Valve Assembly:
The water inlet valve assembly is made up of a plastic
housing, 2 tubes, which the inlet water hoses are
connected to, 3 solenoids and a positive thermal sensor.
Hot
Wash
Bleach
Valve Operation:
The (3) inlet solenoid valves are identical in construction
and operation. The valve body provides an air passage
with a large orifice and seat where the water can be
stopped. The outlet of the valve body empties into a
chamber. A moveable rubber diaphragm operates
against the valve seat to start and stop the flow of water.
The diaphragm is operated by water pressure. It has a
small bleed orifice outside the seat contact area, and a
large main orifice at its center. The armature of the
solenoid serves to open and close the main orifice. The
52
armature operates within a closed metal tube (valve
guide) which is sealed by the outer edge of the
diaphragm to the valve body. A coil spring holds the
armature down against the diaphragm main orifice when
the solenoid is not energized.
The following line drawings and text explains basic valve
operation.
When the valve is in a closed position, the solenoid is not
energized. Water has bled through the diaphragm bleed
orifice placing incoming line pressure on top of the
diaphragm. The bottom of the diaphragm is essentially at
atmospheric pressure (open to the outlet) and the
pressure differential holds the valve shut.
Water Valve Open and Diaphragm Up
When the solenoid is de-energized, the armature drops
down, closing the diaphragm main orifice. Water
continues to flow through the diaphragm bleed orifice,
equalizing the pressure and allowing the spring to push
the diaphragm down against the valve seat.
Water Valve Closed
When the solenoid is energized, the resulting magnetic
field pulls the armature up into the valve guide.
The armature spring is compressed by this action. When
the armature moves up, it allows the water on the top of
the diaphragm to drain through the main orifice.
The diaphragm bleed orifice is much smaller than the
main orifice and will not admit enough water to maintain
pressure on the top side of the diaphragm. Thus, as the
pressure on the top of the diaphragm is reduced to
almost zero, the pressure on the bottom lifts the
diaphragm off the valve seat, allowing a full flow of water.
Water Valve Closing
Water Temperature:
When the AUTO TEMP switch is set to Hot/Cold, in the
wash cycle the hot solenoid is activated and the Bleach
solenoid is activated, for all except the last fill, in rinse.
For the last rinse fill the wash and bleach solenoids are
activated. When the AUTO TEMP switch is set to Warm/
Cold, in the wash cycle the hot and wash solenoids are
activated and the Bleach solenoid is activated, for all
except the last fill, in rinse. For the last rinse fill, the
wash and bleach solenoids are activated. When the
AUTO TEMP switch is set to Warm/WARM, in the wash
cycle the hot and wash solenoids are activated and the
Bleach solenoid is activated, for all except the last fill, in
rinse. For the last rinse fill, the hot and bleach solenoids

are activated. When the AUTO TEMP switch is set to
COLD/COLD, the wash solenoid is activated and the
hot solenoid cycles to warm the water to 65°. For the
last rinse fill, the wash and bleach solenoids are activated.
When the TEMP switch is set to Cold/Cold, in the wash
cycle the wash solenoid is activated and the bleach
solenoid is activated, for all except the last fill, in rinse.
For the last rinse fill, the wash and bleach solenoids are

Auto Temp System:
The auto temp system controls the minimum temperature
of the cold water setting (approximately 65° F.) and
temperature of the warm and hot water setting
(approximately 90° F. and 120° F.). On select models
with a sanitary wash cycle, when the control is set to
sanitary wash, the water temperature is raised to 152° F
in the wash cycle. Auto temp system is made up of the
control board and a positive thermal sensor mounted in

If the hot water supply in the house is below the auto
temp setting, the drum heater heats the water in the
wash cycle.

On select models, a positive thermal sensor (drum
sensor),
When a warm or hot temperature is selected in the wash
cycle, the control board connects the hot water solenoid
to neutral and cycles the center cold water solenoid off
and on to regulate the temperature. When a cold
temperature is selected, the control board connects the
center cold water solenoid to neutral and cycles the hot
water solenoid off and on to regulate the temperature.
When a warm rinse is selected for the final rinse, the
control connects the outside cold solenoid to neutral
and cycles the hot solenoid.

Automatic Dispenser:
The automatic dispenser for detergent, liquid bleach and
fabric softener system is made up of the dispenser cavity,
The 2 outlets of the water inlet valve assembly are inserted
into the rear of the automatic dispenser. During the fill
cycles, water is directed into the top of the cavity through
2 inlets. The inlet on the right, as viewed from the front
of the washer, is connected to the combination output of
the hot water solenoid and the center cold water solenoid.
The inlet on the left, as viewed from the front of the
washer, is connected to the cold water solenoid.
and a removable drawer with three cavities: one for
detergent, one for bleach and one for fabric softener.
In the fill cycle, water enters into the top of cavity and is
directed across the top of the cavity by 4 channels: the
dispenser bypass channel, the detergent channel, bleach
channel and the fabric softener channel. The channel
that receives the water is determined by which inlet
supplies the water or if both inlets supply the water.
The dispenser advanced rinsing technology channel
receives water whenever the inlet on the right, as viewed
from the front of the washer, is activated.
A plastic conveyer is snapped to the bottom of the drawer
to direct the outputs from the bleach and softener
chambers to the dispenser housing outlet channel. This
prevents the mixtures from coming out the front of the
drawer.
55
This path allows the water to bypass the dispenser drawer
and enter the tub by the advanced rinsing technology
hose connected between the cavity and the bellows.
The detergent dispenser channel receives water from the
right-hand input, as viewed from the front of the washer.
The detergent channel forms a loop that allows the water
to pass over the detergent section of the drawer.
As the water pass over the detergent section, holes in
the cavity allows some of the water to enter and flush
the detergent cavity.
Since the flow of the incoming water is more than the
holes can dispense, the excess water backs up into a
channel across the rear of the dispenser.
56
Water in this channel and the mixture from the detergent
drawer flow into the tub through the large hose at the
rear of the dispenser.
Detergent is dispensed at the start of the cycle, but
bleach and fabric softener are not dispensed until later
in the cycle. The bleach and softener cavities in the drawer
have tubes molded into the bottom of them.
Softner
Bleach
These tubes allow bleach or fabric softener to be added
to their cavity without being dispensed as long as the
liquid is below the top of the tubes. At the proper time in
the cycle when bleach or fabric softener is to be
dispensed, water is added to the cavity. This raises the
mixture above the top of the tube and the bleach or fabric
softener starts flowing into the tub.
57
To allow the cavities to empty the cover of the detergent
drawer cover has tubes molded into it that fit over the
tubes in the cavities.
These tubes are larger than the tubes in the cavity and
are designed to fit over the tubes, but not touch the bottom
of the cavity when the cover is installed. When water is
added to either the bleach or fabric softener liquid, the
mixture level rises between the tubes above the tubes in
the cavity and flows into the washer tub. Since the end
of the tube on the insert does not touch the bottom of
the cavity, a siphoning action will occur when the solenoid
activates and allows water into the cavity. The added
water creates an “overfill” condition and starts the
siphoning. The cavity will empty itself when the water is
turned off by the solenoid.
The bleach dispenser channel receives water from the
left-hand input, as viewed from the front of the washer.
The bleach channel forms a path, that allows the water
to pass over the bleach cavity section of the cavity.
water from the right inlet. This collision changes the water
path directing it to the front of the cavity and into the
fabric softener channel. The fabric softener channel forms
a loop that allows the water to pass over the fabric softener
cavity section of the drawer.

As the water passes over the bleach section, holes in
the cavity allow some of the water to enter and mix with

As the water passes over the fabric softener section,
holes in the cavity allow some of the water to enter and

This raises the mixture level above the tubes in the drawer
bleach cavity allowing the mixture to flow into the tub.
Like the detergent channel, the flow of the incoming water
is more than the holes can dispense allowing the excess
water to backup into the channel across the rear of the
dispenser and flow into the tub.
For water to enter the fabric softener channel, both the
left and right inlets must be activated. As the water from

Drain Pump:
The drain pump is mounted to the bottom plate of the
washer behind the access panel. It operates on 120
VAC and is controlled by the control board and pressure
switch. The pump out specifications of the drain pump
vary from 12 G.P.M with a 3 foot standpipe height to 5
G.P.M. with a 8 foot standpipe height.

to neutral single phase 60 Hertz voltage, to a varying
frequency, three phase output voltage from zero to

polarity of the voltage and comparing the input from
the tachogenerator on the drive motor, the speed
control board can operate the drive motor at a
preprogrammed speed and direction.
2. The balance of the load in the washer during the
spin cycle by converting the sine wave from the

SECTION G - CONSTRUCTION
Outer Tub Assembly
The front loading, tumble action clothes washer consists
of a perforated, cylindrical spin basket suspended
horizontally on its axis within a larger solid cylindrical tub.
This assembly is suspended by springs within a four
piece steel cabinet. A see through door and a flexible
bellows (seal) provides access for loading and unloading
clothes.
The outer tub assembly is supported by two suspension
springs and stabilized by two air shock assemblies. A
cement counter weight mounted to the front of the outer
tub. Another weight is molded into the rear half of the outer
tub. These counter weights prevent excessive oscillation
of the entire suspended assembly during an unbalanced
spin cycle.
Spin Basket Assembly
Cabinet
Front Panel and Door Assembly
The spin basket is constructed of stainless steel. The
circumference of the basket is perforated to allow water
to flow through it as it revolves. A heavy steel shaft is
pressed into the spin basket support which is then bolted
to the basket. The spin basket assembly is entirely
supported by two ball bearing assemblies pressed into
the rear of the outer tub.
The front panel is attached with screws to the console
mounting brace and base plate.
A large drive pulley is mounted to the free end of the shaft
that extends through the rear of the outer tub.
Bellows
There are three plastic vanes mounted to the spin basket
to aid in the washing action during the wash cycle. The
rotation of the spin basket provides both the washing
action during the wash cycle and water extraction during
the spin cycle.
The cabinet is made of heavy steel in a four piece design.
The sides and rear are Tog-l-loked at the rear corners and
base. The rear of the cabinet is galvanized steel with an
access panel.
The bellows is a rubber sleeve that seals the suspended
outer tub to the stationarycabinet front at the tub opening.
Its purpose is to provide a water tight opening into the tub
that can be sealed by the cabinet door, yet allow flexibility
for the oscillation of the tub during the wash and spin
cycles.

Troubleshooting the Drum Light Circuit
Quick Check
If there is no error displayed and the washer momentarily
starts then turns back off:
1. Listen for a relay closure inside the motor control
shortly after the Start/Pause key is pressed. If this
happens, the motor control has power.
To troubleshoot the drum light circuit, remove the top of
the washer to gain access to the terminals of the stepdown transformer.
With the washer door open, measure the voltage drop
between the input terminals of the transformer.
If the meter reads zero, remove the door switch and check
it with an Ohm meter. If the contacts are open with the
plunger out, replace the door switch. If the contacts are
closed, replace the control board.
2. Check the 5 pin connector wiring between the
console control and the motor control.
NOTE: During normal operation, the display may show:
If the meter reads line to neutral voltage, measure the
voltage drop between the two output terminals. If the
meter read zero the transformer is defective. If the meter
reads 12 volts, the light is defective.
“SAn” - deep clean (Sanitary Cycle)
“cd” - cool down (Sanitary cycle)
“do” or “dr” - door problem.
“Err” - an error has been detected.

chasing, then release buttons.
61
Note: Since it is recommended that the loading door
be left open when the washer not in use, the
electronic control board limits the amount of time
the drum light is on. With the loading door open,
the electronic control board allows power to the
light for a maximum of (3) minutes.
If the drum light remains on for more than (3) minutes
with the loading door opened, replace the electronic
control board. If the drum light remains on with the loading
door closed, replace the light switch.

Start/Pause buttons until LEDs start sequentially
chasing, then release buttons.
1. All the LEDs will sequentially light. Pressing a
button below a light cluster will light all the LEDs in
that cluster at one time to confirm functionality.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start
position. The control will signal the last error code.
Exiting Diagnostic Mode
There are two options for exiting the Diagnostic Test mode
and returning the washer to normal operation:
a) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then
reconnect the power cord OR
b) Turn the program knob clockwise 2 or 3 clicks after
the start position. Press Options and Start/Pause
buttons together for a few seconds until wash cycle
LEDs appear.
If a situation arises where you cannot exit the
Diagnostic mode as described above and the
bank of 5 LED’s on the right end remain ON
regardless of Program Knob position, a combination of pushed buttons may have caused the
control to enter a special factory test mode.
Disconnect power to reset the control to return
washer to normal operation if this occurs.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the
start position. The hot water solenoid will activate
and hot water should enter through the detergent
compartment.
