I have taped a nickel to the inside of the door ! To insure plunger on door switch is activated.

A " non standard repair "

 

This did not work on a unit with no finale spin.

Wall Center False Creek . 

Under construction , with 2 out of 4 towers now being occupied . 557 Units , each one has a WFC7500VW

There is a good chance I will run into this problem again.

I had two on the go at one time .

If the control was not seeing the door switch.

The wash drum would not move and no water would come in.

 

For no high speed spin ...

Was advised by Whirlpool tech line to change out the user interface - control board. (CCU Assy.)

As these boards  W10192966 are pricey $285.00 .

Nether went ahead with the repair.

Drain pumps are designed to pump water not suds . All your water is turning to suds , after the dry cycle most of the suds have turned back into water and thats what you see.

You should be able to detach the black panel off the front from the control panel.

Reattach the latch and control to the inner panel. Closed the door and run a quick or 1 Hour cycle.

Now grab a beer .. maybe two and watch the dispenser. Whether it has a wax motor or a cylinoid.

It should only activate twice . First time to release detergent in the wash cycle and once more in the rinse cycle for your JetDry.

If it is activated more the twice then it is your control.

Only twice you have a leaking dispenser.

Leaking dispenser is the more likely cause , But I have seen a bad control One time !

Rinse aid is just concentrated detergent. Detergent = suds !!!

 

Before changing out the dispenser !

 

It could be the control board powering the dispenser when it shouldn't.

Electronics do not like heat and moister and yours has been exposed to both.

A cheap fix would be to run without rinse aid . I don't use it myself..

This would depend on the water hardness in your area.

Greater Vancouver B.C. has very soft water so no water spots.
