NO RATINGS
 

Editors:

Maybe it's time for Maytag or Whirlpool (or other appliance manufacturer) to pen an article for Design News.  Give them an opportunity for rebuttal, however I'd ask you to lay down firm ground rules.  They'll be writing to engineers and designers; simple (dumb) sales propaganda will not be tolerated.  If they can avoid that, you might find some interesting discussions result.

The symptoms here sound a lot like those in an earlier Sherlock, where the culprit turned out to be a water fill level sensor for the rinse cycle, if I remember right. That earlier Sherlock had the same solution as our own washer's fill problem after rinsing. I admire the determination to find the solution in both of these, since the symptoms are apparently identical. It sure took us a few tries to find the right answer.

Yet again, our Sherlock Ohms notices something out of the corner of the eye that reveals the problem is not what it initially seems. Sherlock Ohms assumes nothing. Sherlock was called in to fix a washer, but when the water is not draining well, the problem may be with the drain path and not the washer.
