Verify that the Hot and Cold Water Hoses are NOT the aftermarket stainless steel "FloodCheck/FloodSafe" hoses (malfunctions frequently)



How would I know if I have the bad parts?

Thanks!

Press and hold the SPIN SPEED and SOIL LEVEL buttons

 

Press the POWER button and release all three buttons

 

Wait for the door to lock (single "click" sound)

 

Press the START/PAUSE button 6 times (at one second intervals) this will be the TEST MODE for the Hot Water Valve.

 

Noisy? Replace the Hot Water Valve.

 

Better yet---replace both the Hot and Cold Water Valves---to ensure continued reliability.


To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"
