Maytag Bravos Washer Model MVWB850YW1 LF code

1 post in this topic

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
