Good morning, fellow appliantologists!
This customer says she has water at the end of the cycle (normal cycle). I'm thinking, "ok, I'll need to replace a leaky fill valve." Ah, but nay. Upon running it through a cycle, I find that the machine ends final spin, then filled with a couple inches of water, and stopped. The extra rinse option was not selected. This is an intermittent problem - I just love those... This is a standard Wlpl direct drive machine, but the controls are unfamiliar to me. The control switches are all Invensys, including the mechanical timer with its attached time delay module. There is no traditional "load select" switch, the Switch with the tub air pressure line is marked "LS"(Load Sense) and is marked on the "customer side" as Fabric Softener (options: No Softener or Softener Added)- p/n W10177795. The switch is electronic, but I can't see how it senses load size. I did note that the tub filled full the two times I tried it (no laundry in tub), but I also note that I opened the lid a couple times, without realizing at first, that the machine may recognise this lid opening as adding laundry.
The air line and tub "dome" are clear.
If any of you fellows have a tech data sheet pub number, [the one packed with the machine is only a schematic] I'll order one from Wlpl for my stash.
Any thoughts, fellow gurus?
Thanks,
Al
Alfred
