Title: water wont fill
Post by: markmezzano on January 12, 2009, 12:04:26 AM
Washer stopped last week.  Water starts to enter on wash cycle and then quickly stops.  No rinse water, washer times out.  I changed water valve and checked continuity across pressure switch and have same.  Any suggestions.

Model mah4000aww

Bad motor control board. Look down there and see.

(The machine control will shut down the machine if no tumbling is observed during the initial fill. A bad motor control will cause this and is easy to diagnose)

You will find dark scorch marks on the motor board and probably a blown inline fuse on the  board itself, niether of which is correctable without a new motor conversion kit.
