Fill/Sensing light on

Possible Solutions

SENSING/FILL Light is on

When the Start/Stop button is pressed, and the Water Level knob is set to Auto Sensing, the washer will fill and begin sensing to determine load size and balance. Once sensing is complete, the washer will fill to the appropriate level for the detected load size and then begin the wash phase of the cycle.

NOTE:  If the fill light is on, and there is no or little water coming in, check your water supply lines. Both water lines should be completely open (turned on) for the washer to operate correctly. 

NOTE: Sensing and wash phases will be paused by opening the unlocked lid. Close the lid to resume the cycle. If the lid is left open for more than 10 minutes, the washer will cancel the cycle and pump out the water. The lid will lock after the wash phase to begin the initial spinout and remain locked for the remainder of the cycle.
