This unit is throwing a LF code. Unit will start to fill up and at the start of the agitation will throw the LF code and drain.

 

Have check all of the following according to the service manual

 

Drain hose position

Water supply on and clean screens.  Good flow into a bucket when unhooked

Pressure hose clean, clear and tight

 

Manual Diagnostics

 

All valves engaged

Spin cycle functioned

Agitate Cycles all worked

 

Water valve tested off with the meter

Tech sheet show 790-840 ohms

The meter show 1300-1320 ohms

 

So I order new water valve and installed, still throws the LF code.

New valve shows 1300-1320 ohms

 

Are the numbers correct on the tech sheet or is the brand new valve bad.  Ordered OEM part from Partselect.

 

Anyone have this part in inventory to check the ohms on this part #W10342320

 

Any help appreciated

 

Thanks
