    Default WM3670HWA LG Washer 120 volts on both sides of coil of water inlet valve

    Model Number: WM3670HWA
    Brand: LG
    Age: Less than 1 year

    Getting 120 volts to the coil on the water inlet valve. Iím getting 0 volts while connected is plugged in and that is from one side of the coil to the next this would indicate that power is passing since only 0 volts are detected problem is that the inlet valves are not seeming to run at those times and other times it does. Anyways the initial complaint is that it doesnít seem to fill with a lot of water she had an older model top loader previously. Any ideas?

    I have no idea what you're trying to say in that sentence but this is you answer: Front load washers use around 12 gallons of water. Top load washers use around 25 gallons of water.
