Well 100% of the people I know with a washer with that mechanism have
had it fail. But that said, it's only one person. OTOH the repair person
that came out to fix it told her that they fail consistently.
Usually it's just a matter of blowing through the hose to clear the
blockage but a lot of sensors, timers, and controllers get replaced that
are not really bad.
The other stupid thing on these machines is that when working properly,
if you open the lid, say to throw in another item. the machine changes
to maximum load size instead of keeping the smaller load size.
"These machines"? Which "these machines"? Are you claiming all HE washer
exhibit the "refill to the max load size" issue?
Well, it can't be all machines, because my load sensing machine doesn't
even have a lid. It's a front loader. I've opened the _door_ numerous,
numerous times and I've never had an issue with the machine suddenly
filling up with more water.
Based on the fact that your "100%" experience includes a single machine and
the word of a single repair person, I will choose to doubt the original
statement until some more substantive evidence is provided.
I am curious though, what "hose" are you referring to that needs to be
blown out to resolve the issue. You know, just in case I ever experience

Samsung, GE, Miele, etc. don't have this issue if they have automatic
