Hi First time post,
I am getting a Fault code 37 error on my washer. The pump was blocked with a piece of plastic, which I have removed, this piece of plastic looks like part of the diverter valve, looks like a gray pen lid.
My question is where does the diverter valve live and how do I replace it, also will a broken diverter valve still bring up the Fault code 37

Have you put it back together and tested? It might be fixed. The diverter valve sits behind and to the right of pump on most models. Dont get it wet.

It is very possible that the pump shorted out the control board. I do not work on very many of these in my area. You might want wait for more replies before making a quick decision.

Post a pic of the part that was in your pump.
