Could use some help, front load washer. wbvh6240fww
« on: December 22, 2011, 05:24:16 PM »
Go to start a cycle and as normal the washer drains but it drains forever.  Nothing else happens, it just drains (of course there is nothing to drain).  The pump runs constantly.  That's all it does.  The minutes do count down though.  But nothing happens.

Thanks!

Thanks but already did that.  Pump clean.  Even dumped a bucket of water in the washer and it pumped right out.  It kinda seems like the overfill is stuck or something.

It is not filling with water while pump is running.  It doesnt do anything.  The timer counts down, but it just pumps.

One last thing that I just discovered.  Test 11 when pressing start 120v should be sent to inverter.  That does not happen.  Thanks!!
