Maytag 2000 Series Washer: LF Error
Model Number: MHWE251YG00 Brand: Maytag Age: 1 - 5 years
Yesterday, our washer (Maytag 2000 Series) started reporting an "LF" error.
The service manual tells me that it is a "No water detected entering wash or pressure switch trip not detected".
I have read through the Possible Causes / Procedure section.
What I've done so far to diagnose / troubleshoot:
1. Checked to make sure water was turned on for both hot and cold (yes).
2. Checked water pressure for both hot and cold (normal pressure for both).
3. Checked the filters for both the single (hot) and double (cold) inlet valves (clear).
4. Checked the hoses from the wall to the washer and the inlet valves to the detergent compartment for kinks or leaks (none).
5. Checked the inlet valves for resistance using my voltmeter (both passed).
6. Checked the continuity of the pressure switch (passed).
7. Cleared the error and ran the diagnostic test per the service manual (all passed).
Now....here's where it gets interesting:
When I attempt to run a load of laundry (in this example, it was on Normal cycle, Cold, Extra High Spin, Normal soil level), the water does begin to fill the tub, but in a noticeably lower pressure/speed than when I run the diagnostic test or when I do a "Rinse/Drain/Spin" cycle. When I run the diagnostic test, you can very clearly tell that the water is coming into the tub at a much faster rate.
Following running the above load of laundry and getting the LF error, I changed to "Rinse / Drain / Spin" mode and started the washer again. Very noticeable change in the speed of the water coming into the tub.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to what would cause this? I am assuming that the inlet valves are either open or closed, with no in between. The water (hot or cold) valve opens, water enters the tub to the pre-determined level, then is shut off via the pressure switch activation.
It doesn't make sense that there would be such a dramatic difference in the speed of the water entering the tub.
Any comments or suggestions are very much-appreciated.
