Thanks, Pegi!

We used to use powdered d/w detergent as that brand had enzymes in it, eschewing Cascade (per Consumer Reports, of course! :? ) We're now working on a bottle of Cascade (heavier than water) liquid. Dunno if that would work, although I can certain get a box of powder. What do you think?

Do not use liquid anything, is made with clay and sure clogs everything up, run from tablets also, the best DW detergent is Electrasol, stick with that and you cannot go wrong...

Affresh tablets work great on the front loaders.  It even helps clean up the "Gack" that builds up on the boots.  They tell you not to have clothes in the unit, but I have had better success by putting in rags and things I did not care got damaged.  That way in spin, centrifugal force will forces the water out of the clothes and spray the complete tub aiding in the cleaning process.

Yes, he did, thanks!

Will keep and run now and periodically. We're not having an odor problem, just a drainage problem. BUT, will definitely be following these guidelines. Am headed out to Wally World for some things, including Electrasol.

Will keep you posted. Thanks again!

Ok, have run the cleaning cycle using bleach and am now on the second cleaning cycle (hot water, extra rinse, no laundry in tub) using Electrosol.

No change yet but have discovered that after the normal cycle, I can run the C:08 diagnostic to spin the clothes damp so they can be dried. No water enters during the C:08 test.

Not the most elegant solution but, hey, it might work for a load or two until we can sort this out, n'cest pas?

Are we sure there's no components that are marginal or would the system give us trouble codes if that were the case? How about the pressure switch? I would hate to have to pull this thing out to check on the other end of the small hose that disappears down the back!

Anyway, later!

Hiya!

Well, I ran several cleaning cycles through the thing and it didn't change anything. I don't really have any more time to spend on this; have to get it running. I could start replacing $200 modules but I might as well call the local Whirlpool 'stealership' and get the checkbook out.

I've processed a couple of loads by running the appropriate cycle. Of course, during the last 30 seconds or so of the cycle, just as the drum is spinning down, it still coughs up about a half gallon in the drum. BUT, I can run diagnostics and when it complete C:08, the load has spun and is just damp and ready for the dryer. Not an elegant solution but will do until the tech dude (or dudette) gets here.

Thanks for all the help folks!

Hate to be so vague but if I was having this problem with my Duet I would leave the top off for now and run the washer with a voltage tester on the various wires that come from the filll valve(s) to see which wire had voltage for that time at the end of the spin cycle to the water valve and where that wire led you to, there would be your problem....

Hey, nobody's complaining! Everyone on this site has been super. This is something that's just difficult to diagnose long distance and my background is in mechanical, not electrical engineering. Plus, I've got a company to run and have to get back on track so it's time to fish or cut bait. haha

Since the dryer was relatively east to fix in 2007, I thought I'd take a shot at the washer.

As far as the testing you mentioned, I have determined that it is the cold water inlet/valve that was opening and admitting extra water during the last minute of the cycle. As far as tracing the wires back, well, they run back to the CCU/logic board. I'm tempted to order a new logic board and maybe a pressure switch but if that's not the problem and, since I'm about at the end of my electrical troubleshooting prowess, I'd be out those parts plus a service call and THEIR parts. It's not really a money issue, but nobody likes to pay for stuff that's not needed.

If it does turn out to be the CCU, I don't know why that would have failed. It's not as though we've had any power surges or lightning strikes. Or maybe they're the weak link the the system.

Any thoughts on THIS rambling? :-)

Well, that IS a nice feature! It's returnable even if it's been installed and removed? (as long as it's in original condition and salable, right?)

Thanks, Pegi

That's good to know; takes away some of the anxiety, at least. I guess I'll try that first and let the call to Lowes/Whirlpooll service 'Plan B'. Sigh.

Thanks very much!

Maybe that dime you found ate up the fins in the pump impeller.

Pegi,

Well, the parts got here Friday morning, right on time! Tried the pressure switch first, (the easy stuff, ya know?) but it turned out to the the logic board or CCU. R&R'd that, buttoned everything up and all is back to normal. Yay!

Many thanks, everyone, for all your help and input!

Will be making a NICE donation to the beer fund! :party:
