Thanks in advance for any help given.
Bought this washer off Craig's list from party that didn't want to spend $180
for service call. Washer is less than two years old and looks new.
They had warranty work done 1 year ago at $450, and they didn't want to risk
a big service charge for repairs.
Thought this would give me something to tinker with, since my washer
is 15 years old and very noisy.
What happens is, washer starts normally and seems to run normally through
the prewash, then drains, refills, then steps to normal wash cycle. I hear the detergent door open,
then after about a minute, the wash led goes out, the cancell/drain led lights,
the tub drains, then all leds are off and all stops.
Does the same thing regardless of any cycle chosen.
I set the washer up in my garage to try to diagnose, and have connected to
cold water faucet. I did pour hot water in tub to begin wash, but of course
the second cycle fills with cold water. Don't know if that is an issue.
People I bought this from, said this is what was happening, quitting mid cycle.
Just for reference, does this machine have heater that heats water, in addition
to the heat element for drying.
Any info on where to find Tech Sheet/ Diagnostic procedure, for this, would be appreciated.
Kitchenaid site doesn't seem helpful.
Also, is anyone aware of any issues with this machine. Looking at some reviews on
this, it appears some folks think this is a LEMON.
Still appears they're selling this model, listing it over $700.
