I took the drawer out and don't see a magnet on the drawer or on it's track, back of the track, no where, it's all plastic. No sign of a magnet or any place a magnet would be used????

I pulled the drawer out and look for any sign of a magnet, nothing but plastic everywhere. I looked in the track all over, no magnetic or any sign of a place a magnetic might have been making contact.

I checked it and pulled it out, no sign of a magnet or any place one might have been. The whole think, drawer, track, lock are plastic. I pulled it open and closed it several times, it seems to be locking and in the correct position.

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.

I still get a loud hum from the motor control board area

 

So the loud hum has now moved to the door lock ???

If I were to guess, I would try a doorlock before a control

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?
