The machine works fine if it's entirely a cold water cycle, but won't fill on hot cycle and eventually shuts itself off. No error codes displayed. Switch to a cold water wash and it's fine. There is hot water getting to the machine so no obstuction, at least from the supply line. Any ideas on how to proceed? Many thanks.

Take lid off, when it should be filling with hot water check to see if you are getting 120 volts to the hot solenoid. If there is voltage and still no hot coming it is a water valve. Also check tech sheet, follow instructions and see if there is an error stored, you should also be able to test the hot fill in the test mode as well.

Thanks for all the help! I measured voltage at the "Hot" valve solinoid and got voltage but no fill. Tried a "cold cycle" and measured voltage on "Cold" solinoid and got voltage and fill, so it's the water valve.

I did follow the internal test procedure without success. I got into "t01" and held the Start/Pause until beep as per the manual. I could not get to "t02" for the life of me.  I pushed Power and got back to "t01" then Start/Pause to move to "t02" but it returned me to select the version of my control board.

 

I tried Start/Pause after the beep thinking I wasn't following correctly and it took me out of test mode entirely. I'm usually pretty good at following test procedures, but either this baffles me or something else is wrong. I made sure that I was out of test mode and started over with unplugging, getting into test mode and working the sequence with no luck. I never did get to see error codes.

 

The fact that everything else works fine, I have to assume that it's only the bad valve and replace that. If you guys have any thoughts I would appreciate it as this will nag my brain as an unresolved issue.

Yes! I just placed my Repair Clinic order for the valve! I did do a continuity check on the solinoid and it is "open". The inlet was pretty pristene with zero sludge. Also took the opportunity to replace the supply hoses ~8 years old. Water heater is 4 years old so thanks, but I should be good for awhile. I routinely replace at 10 years. I learned that lesson in my youth.

 

Thanks to all for your assistance. I love this site; what a terrific resource. I've been able to repair a Dual-Fuel Range, a dishwasher etc, etc thanks to this site and I've been able to source hard to find discontinued parts with the help I've gotten here.

 

Oh and despite my choice of favourite beer, I have to admit I haven't run into many "bad" beers. Stay cool!

Good job, make sure you use stainless steel or braided hoses instead of rubber, definitely worth the price.

Hello again folks. I received my valve assembly less than an hour ago. The machine is up, running and all is well. The part was OEM and identical to the original. I treated the machine to new fill hoses and we are good to go. Best of all my wife thinks I'm a genius tho I am only an humble apprentice.

 

Many thanks for the forum and all of the advice and support. Dan.
