Fault 32 (10000100) (you've confirmed this via diagnostics?)

Single Current Trip

The Motor Controller Module detected momentary excess current in the motor or electronic switches.

Sources:  1) Wiring or Motor or 2) Motor Controller

1) Test for 12.2 ohms resistance across the three motor phases on the harness at the motor controller.

Check the RPS and wiring for water/corrosion damage or mechanical damage.

2) Replace the motor controller.  First check for water leaks at the cooling chamber and supply valves, if so fix the leaking before replacing the controller.

 

Cold temp light flashing = no cold water.

5th progress light (first rinse light) flashing = oversudsing.

Or possibly is related to the cycle position when Fault 132 occurs.

No I haven't checked via diagnostics.When I fill with cloths and turn the machine on it fills with water and then I get the flashing lights. Yes it's the 5th light (first rinse light) and the cold water light. I'm not sure if it's fault #132,that's what another website told me they thought it could be. I will run a diagnostic test and re-post.

Turn washer off. Press and hold wash temp down button then press the power button. You should hear 2 beeps.Release buttons. Use the" spin speed button up" until the "slow and hold" lights light up. Then tell us what "wash progress " lights are lit. That will be the stored fault code.

I got in the diagnostic mode and no lights were lit on the wash bar,so I started checking the pump,diverter valve,lid switch,etc. and when I got to the cold water valve..no water. Hot water works good but no cold so I'm going to replace both valves and go from there. Thanks for the help

There's no need to replace the hot valve if it doesn't have a confirmed problem.

 

There are 16 diagnostic levels, 0 through 15.  Some of the levels don't give useful information.  Switching between levels is via the Spin Speed Up/Down buttons.  The selected level is indicated by the spin lights in binary fashion (Hold=1, Slow=2, Medium=4, High=8).  The last recorded fault code is displayed via the Wash Progress lights in Diagnostic Level 3, which is indicated by spin Hold and Slow lit at the same time (1 + 2 = Level 3).

When it was in diagnostic mode the Hold and Slow lights were lit and also the Cold light as well. There were no lights on the wash bar lit. I have since reset the washer and used Hot water only and it has worked as it should, so I'm thinking it's the cold water valve. Any other suggestions would be of great help.

Rinsing always involves cold water.

 Since the cold water valve is a mixing valve, is it possible that it's not operating properly causing the error?

Do you feel or hear the cold valve Hum / vibrate? Check cold water going to machine, single lever shut offs have a tendency to fail.  Make sure you are getting it to the washer. Check screen on water valve where hose attaches. Clean ? Check power to valve?

I found it!!! The screen on the hose end was clogged not letting enough water into the valve. I cleaned both hot and cold screens and ran 3 loads of cloths on warm water and the washer worked like a champ! Thanks for all the help
