Tumble Wash
Wash routines are programmed by cycle. The only
adjustment to the tumble routine is through cycle
selection.
The basket rotates clockwise for a predetermined
period of time at a predetermined speed. The
basket pauses for a predetermined period of
time. The basket rotates counterclockwise for a
predetermined period of time at a predetermined

dispensing of detergent, bleach, and fabric softener

starting the washer.
The products added to the dispenser are diluted
with water before they are dispensed into the wash
tub. This is accomplished by a water diverter that
sprays a controlled jet of water into the proper
compartment at the correct time. The water diverter
movement is provided by a motor driven cam
located on the dispenser tank. The diverter motor
and water valve are operated by the control board.
At the start of a cycle, after the wake-up routine
is completed, the dispenser always moves into

Caution: When testing the dispenser motor, DO
NOT remove the wiring harness from the dispenser
motor unless replacing the motor assembly. The
motor assembly has a special locking connector

Water Level Control Operation
Water Level Sensor
The water level sensor is installed on the cabinet
right side top brace. The water level sensor is
connected by a hose to an air chamber attached to
the bottom of the outer tub. The water level control
consists of one internal sensor that monitor water
level conditions.
•
When the water level rises in the outer tub, air is
trapped in the air chamber.
•
As the water level rises, the air pressure in the air
chamber increases.
•
The increased pressure operates the water
sensor.

When the machine is empty, there is no water in

the sensor will output the empty frequency signal.
As the water level rises, the air pressure in the air
chamber increases, the water sensor frequency
will change as the pressure change until the foam

Outer Tub Assembly and Suspension
The outer tub assembly is constructed in two halves
and contains the wash basket. The bearing and
seal assembly is part of the outer tub rear half. The
outer tub assembly is supported by two suspension
springs and four dampers. Each spring is located
between the top of the tub assembly and a cabinet
top brace, one on each side. Washer stabilization
is achieved by the use of four dampers that are
located between the bottom of the tub assembly
and chassis, two per side.
6. Remove the tub vent hose from the left rear of
the outer tub:

Service Test Mode
The washer control has a service test mode that can be utilized by the service technician in order to test
critical components and to access error codes. This test mode will help the service technician to quickly
identify failed or improper operation of washer components.
Caution: Testing is accomplished through built-in test procedures. Unplugging components for testing can
damage component connections.
Machine must be in idle mode before entering a test. Idle mode occurs when the washer has completed a
cycle. If the cycle is interrupted, the washer will drain water when the power is reapplied. The water must be
emptied BEFORE the test mode can be entered. If water remains in the washer, manually drain the washer to
empty. A failed water level switch can cause an inability to enter the service test mode.
1.
To enter the test mode:
Begin with the washer in idle mode (all LED's
RQWKHGLVSOD\RȺ
2. Press the following key sequence to enter
service mode, depending on the model:
•
Temp -->Delay Wash -->Temp -->Delay Wash
•
Signal -->Extra Rinse -->Signal -->Delay Rinse
•
Temp -->Delay Start -->Temp -->Delay Start
NOTE: The sequence must be done in order. If
there are any other button presses or buttons
