The washer is not filling or is filling slowly. If the washer does not fill with water within a programmed time, this error is the result. To resolve:

  • First, ensure water is on inside the house using a secondary water source.
  • Ensure the water valves connected to the water inlet hoses are completely open. It can help to turn the water off, and then turn it back on at maximum capacity.
  • If the weather is below freezing, you may have a frozen water line. Our guide on protecting appliances in extreme cold offers tips on how to get your water flowing again.
  • Inspect the water inlet hoses for kinks, clogs, or damage. We recommend replacing the hoses every five years.

  • Manually rotate the spin basket. If it can’t move freely, or you hear a crunching or grinding sound, there may be something lodged between the wash tub and the outer tub. Follow our guidelines for a washer that won’t spin for detailed instructions on how to resolve the issue.

If the above repairs do not resolve the error, it will be necessary to test and potentially replace the wiring, drive motor, and inverter control board.

3 flashes The inverter control is defective. The inverter control is built into the drive motor and it cannot be purchased seperately. If the inverter control is defective then the entire drive motor needs to be replaced.

If this circuit fails then try reconnecting the wire harness between the inverter control and the mode shifter. If this doesn’t fix the issue then the drive shaft assembly will need to be replaced.
