Nopeis the earlier diagnosis of inlet water issue not the right one?
6 is the wash motor function code and the 1 is the problem code for no communications. The control can't tell if the motor is working. Follow the steps on the tech sheet to diagnose the problem. If the voltage at the motor is correct, you'll probably need to replace the motor:seems like a wash motor issue?
A lot of people don't post back once it's fixed. But some do. It can go either way even with the exact same symptoms.I am hoping he resolved it, I will try whatever he ended up doing
You might be right but I've run into this more than once on service calls where the problem was an intermittent motor issue. The motor is actually a DC variable speed motor. There a rectifier on board inside the motor that changes the 120 VAC to DC voltage. The intermittent problem is somewhere in that area. A bad connection or solder joint stops the motor and the control interprets that as a communication error and stops sending the 120 VAC to the motor.That is what's making me think it is the board giving intermittent power to the pump.
As soon as the machine stops and gives you the 6-1, immediately run the service diagnostics. Interval 22 is the last error code interval. Interval 21 is a 10 second pause and the Hi-Temp LED will be blinking. Press the Hi-Temp key to clear the error codes. After you clear the errors, use the start/resume key to advance to the end of the test cycle (interval 1) and let the cycle end. Then start another regular wash cycle. If the cycle completes without the 6-1 the motor is most likely OK.I get about 3-5 washes before it does the 6 and 1 again.
