I took it apart and finally found the magnet, it's in there. It's in the door front, found it in there when I took the face plate/door front off the body of the dispenser.

Looking at the wiring diagram on the paperwork, could it be the water level sensor?

from the Tech Sheet:

E14 Reed switch. Refer to test (3).

Test 3:

1. Is the dispenser drawer closed?

No. Close the drawer.

Yes. Go to step (2).

2. Remove the drawer and check the magnet.

Magnet missing or defective. Replace the magnet.

Magnet good. Go to step (3).

3. Open the console and check the reed switch.

Defective. Replace the reed switch.

Good. Replace the control board.

OR bad / broken wiring / connector ...

Ok, I'm sure your getting tired of me by now. How do you check the reed switch which is the water intake valve assembly, correct? If the reed switch is good, which control board and where is it located?

error E14 Reed Switch has nothing to do with Water Input ..

The Reed Switch is in the Dispenser Drawer area.

It senses the Magnet when the Drawer is fully closed.

Thank you very much, I'll check it when i get home. I'll make sure the magnetic is still good, I saw it last night but didn't touch it with metal to make sure it's good. I sure hope it's not the controller, looks like alot of disassemble/reassemble.

I brought home a magnet and held it next to where the end of the reed switch is and the washer still makes a hum after I hear the door lock, a solineod/switch clicks so I'm assuming the reed switch is working. I then put the drawer back in and get the same result so I assume the magnet is good. I took the magnet away from the reed switch and after about 10-15 seconds, I get a "doo" message on the display which I assume means door open so the reed switch must be working. I think I know the answer here but is it time to assume the controller board is bad? Thanks again for all the help, I suspect I was sent in the wrong direction from the start by Appliance Zone and told to buy the motor control board when I may have needed the control board. Please advise.

No the hum is still towards the back down low. I can't tell where it's coming from but after about 8-10 seconds it stops then 8-10 seconds later coming back on. There is something down low to the left across from the motor that's hooked to the discharge hose, could that be making the noise and putting out the E14 code?

I had a full drum to clean out which was in there for 10 days, nasty as hell!!!! But, Mr. genious, I think it might have fixed it. I'm going to start it now and see how it goes. I'll be in touch shortly.

The washer filled with water and went into the wash cycle then the hum started again when I suspect it went into the drain cycle. I almost sure the hum is coming from the drain pump. I stuck my finger up in it and didn't find anything, should I remove it and see if it's jammed with some crap?

I turned the washer off, unplugged it and then turned it back on setting it to Drain/Spin, as soon as I turned it on it just hummed so could that be a pump motor jam or bad pump motor??
