    Make sure your home's hot water heater is working.


    The washer has tried to fill but has not reached the proper water level.

    Make sure your water supply is a minimum of 20 psi.


    The door will not unlock.

    Make sure the door is firmly closed.

    Push the power button to turn off the washer, and then turn it on again.


    The motor is not running properly.

    Restart the cycle pressing the Cycle Selector dial.

If the proposed solutions do not work, or, if your washing machine is displaying a code that is not listed here, please click the "Create Online Service Request" button below to begin the service process.

    ※ Note

    If service is needed, please document the code your washer is displaying.


    If the error code is LE, you may be using the wrong type, or too much, detergent.

    Use only HE detergent. Non-HE detergent will cause a false LE error code.

    To find out if you are using too much detergent, fill the washer with no clothes inside.

    If you see suds in the water, you are using the wrong type of detergent, or too much detergent.
