TROUBLESHOOTING TESTS

TEST #1 Supply connections
This test assumes that proper voltage is present at the
outlet.
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Access the machine/motor control assembly. See
Accessing & Removing the Electronic Assemblies,
page 6.
3. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between the
neutral (N) terminal of the plug and P13-1 on the
machine/motor control. See figures 4 and 5, page 15.
If there is continuity, go to step 4.
 
If there is no continuity, replace the power cord.
 
4. In a similar way, check the continuity between the L1
terminal of the plug and P13-3 on the machine/motor
control. See figures 4 and 5, page 15.
If there is continuity, go to step 5.
 
If there is no continuity, replace the power cord.

5. Visually check that the P13 connector is inserted all
the way into the machine/motor control.
6. Visually check that the user interface assembly is
properly inserted into the front console.
7. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface
assembly. See Reinstalling the Electronic
Assemblies, page 6.
8. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
9. Follow procedure under Activation of Console and
Indicators Diagnostic Test mode, page 2, to verify
repair.
10. If indicators still do not light, the machine/motor
control has failed:
Unplug washer or disconnect power.
 
Replace the machine/motor control assembly.
 
Plug in washer or reconnect power.
 
TEST #2 Log Valve
This test checks the electrical connections to the valves,
and the valves themselves.
1. Check the relays and electrical connections to the
valves by performing the steps under Diagnostic:
Manual, then Manual: Water Valves, page 2. Each
step in the test activates a group of valves. The
following steps assumes one (or more) valve(s)
failed to turn on.
2. For the valve(s) in question check the individual
solenoid valves:
Unplug washer or disconnect power.
 
Disconnect connector P1 and P2 from the
 
machine/motor control. See figure 5, page 15.
Check harness connection to solenoid valves.
 
3. Check resistance of valve coils at contacts P1 and P2
shown in the wiring diagram on page 16. Resistance
should be between 790–840 Ω.
If resistance readings are tens of ohms outside of
 
range, replace the entire log valve assembly.
If resistance readings are within range, replace the
 
machine/motor control assembly.
4. Reconnect connectors P1 and P2 to the machine/
motor control.
TEST #3 Motor Circuit
This test checks the wiring to the motor and rotor
position sensor; and the motor and rotor position sensor
themselves.
NOTE: Drain water from tub.
1. See Activation of Manual Diagnostic Test Mode,
page 2 and check the motor and electrical
connections by performing the Spin test under
Manual: Motor, page 2. The following steps assumes
that this step failed.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check to see if basket will turn freely.
If basket turns freely, go to step 4.
 
If basket does not turn freely, determine what is
 
causing the mechanical friction or lock up.
4. Remove the console to access the machine/motor
control assembly. See Accessing & Removing the
Electronic Assemblies, page 6.
5. Visually check that the P5 and P10 connectors are
inserted all the way into the machine/motor control.
If visual checks pass, go to step 6.
 
If visual checks fail, reconnect P5 and P10 and
 
repeat step 1.
