49. (00110001) Cold Valve Coil Faulty

The Motor Control Module has measured a voltage from the valve diagnostic circuit that indicates the cold valve is faulty.

The most likely cause is that the valve harness has not been connected correctly or the valve is open circuit.

I checked the ohm for both hot and cold water SOV's, both read 58.9 ohms, I did not see anything loose with the wiring? I did not pull and reseat the module connector for the water valves, just the water valves themselves.

AM I looking at a control module going out?? the washer is three years old and seems to run the test from the control board for the pump run.

Is there a test for the water valves to open?

Thanks for you time.

DIAGNOSTIC MODE

To enter diagnostic mode follow the steps below.

1. Turn the power on at the power point but off at the machine.

2. Press and hold WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN

and then press POWER until the machine gives 2 short beeps and lights up.

3. Release the buttons after the beeps as the beeps indicate diagnostic mode has been entered.

Water Valve Test

The water valves can be activated in diagnostic mode by pushing WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING UP to activate the Hot Valve

and WASH TEMPERATURE SETTING DOWN to activate the Cold valves.

Pressing each button once will activate the valve.

To de-activate valve press the same button again.

Caution: Do not leave the machine unattended when either or both valves are operating.

if they both read the same and stay in range then the fault is in the module
