Q:

Cabrio Coding WTW6400SW3

A:

Thank you for choosing Searspartsdirect.com and being a valued member. I can certainly assist you in locating the diagnostic mode for your washer. 

ACTIVATION OF AUTOMATIC
DIAGNOSTIC TEST MODE
1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged
in with all indicators off; or with only the Clothes
Clean or Done indicator on).
2. Select any one button (except POWER, START,
STOP, and PAUSE/CANCEL) and follow the steps
below, using the same button:
a. Press/hold 3 seconds.
b. Release for 3 seconds.
c. Press/hold 3 seconds.
d. Release for 3 seconds.
e. Press/hold 3 seconds.
? If this test mode has been entered successfully,
all indicators on the console are illuminated for
5 seconds with 88 showing in the Estimated
Time Remaining two-digit display.
? If indicators do not display as described above,
the press/hold/release procedure above may
not have been performed within the time frame
necessary for successful entry. Repeat step 2
to ensure this was not the cause. If still
unsuccessful, see Diagnostic: Unsuccessful
Entry, at right.
3. The test sequence continues by checking for saved
fault codes:
? If there are saved fault codes, see Diagnostic:
Saved Fault Codes, page 2.
? If there are no saved fault codes, all indicators
on the console will momentarily turn off, then
turn back on with 88 displayed. After
5 seconds, the Automatic test, below, begins.

Q:

LF error WTW6400SW3 Whirlpool Residential washer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com and being a valued member.  I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your washer is not working properly. 

LF flashes when the water level does not

change for a period of time ORwater is

present but control does not detect the water

level changing.

? Is water supply connected and turned on?

? Are hose screens plugged?

? Is water siphoning out of the drain hose?

Check for proper drain hose installation.

? Is the pressure hose connection fromthe tub

to the machine/motor control pinched,

kinked, plugged or leaking air?

? See TEST #2

TEST #2 Log Valve

This test checks the electrical connections to the valves,

and the valves themselves.

1. Check the relays and electrical connections to the

valves by performing the steps under Diagnostic:

Manual, then Manual: Water Valves, page 2. Each

step in the test activates a group of valves. The

following steps assumes one (or more) valve(s)

failed to turn on.

2. For the valve(s) in question check the individual

solenoid valves:

? Unplug washer or disconnect power.

? Disconnect connector P1 and P2 from the

machine/motor control. 

? Check harness connection to solenoid valves.

3. Check resistance of valve coils at contacts P1 and P2

shown in the wiring diagram on page 16. Resistance

should be between 790–840 ?.

? If resistance readings are tens of ohms outside of

range, replace the entire log valve assembly.

? If resistance readings are within range, replace the

machine/motor control assembly.

4. Reconnect connectors P1 and P2 to the machine/

 

motor control.
