Wash Light on

 

Possible Solutions

Wash Light On or Flashing:

The Wash Light is On or Flashing when the water level does not change for a period of time OR water is present but the control does not detect the water level changing.

If the Wash Light is on or flashing and a wash cycle is not running, check the following:

Is the water supply connected correctly?

  • Turn off the water and remove the inlet hoses from the washer. Remove any accumulated film or particles from the water inlet valve screens. Reinstall the hoses, turn on water, and check for leaks.
  • Turn on the water. Check the household faucets to see if the hot and cold water faucets are turned on. Make sure to open both faucets completely for proper fill.
