Hi,

This unit doesn't seem to be getting enough water in.

 

After the wash cycle, before rinse, the customer reports an F20 error code.

 

I ran the diagnostic test.

 

The unit filled with water, but not enough I thought, then the tub rotated clockwise as the sheet said.

 

But it also started to rotate CCW??

 

Then it drained fine and went into the spin cycle which it should have reached max rpms in about 15 seconds.

It was spinning at slow speed for about 10 seconds and then everything shut off.

 

Any ideas??

 

Thanks,

Bruce

Start with making sure the inlet hoses are clear and the inlet valve screens are not all crudded up with gookus. Check the inlet valves themselves then maybe the pressure switch and pressure switch hose. Good start anyway. :kopkrab:

What's the point of it's use?

Slow fill could still be an issue, especially the cold water side of the inlet valve.  But the fact the unit drained completely but didn't spin properly in the component test could indicate a problem with the pressure switch and/or hose.
