My Whirlpool washer fills up but won't stop poring into the washer. Is this something that is repairable?


Your water level switch could be defective. This switch has a plastic 1/4 hose connected from your tub to the switch. (should be easy to find.) Make sure this hose is connected to your tub and switch and the line has no holes. It is easy to test the switch by disconnecting the line from the tub and while water is flowing into your washer, Blow into the line. The pressure will stop the water flow. If not, Bad level switch.

My whirlpool front load washer, only a year and a half in use, stops after filling and flashes the message F35. The trouble shooting manual does not give any explanation for F35. Any suggestions?


F35 is a water level error.
The water level switch (pressure switch) has malfunctioned.

If you remove the top panel, three screws in the back, you will have access to the pressure switch.

With the tub empty, remove the vinyl hose from the switch and blow backwards through the hose to clear any restrictions.

If the fault codes return after doing this, you will likely need to replace the pressure switch.


Also - please be sure to use He soap.

Whirlpool Washer model # LSN1000KQ0 overfilling


did you plug the hose back into the water level switch, double check to see if it is plugged, if it is your water level switch might be defective. trouble shoot by taking the front panel off... turn on the washer by using the timer, set water level to small...on the bottom of the tub housing there should be a nipple where the clear hose connects onto.....follow the clear hose from the switch down to the bottom of the tub.........disconnect the clear hose on the bottom of the tub.....plugg the nipple with your finger.........gently blow into the hose with your mouth.......but make sure the water level in the tub is at least at half way full...and the washer is on and filling up with water ...after you blow into the hose the washer should agitate.......if it does agitate your water level switch is defective...connect hose back........get your model number and source for the switch.........

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

Water will not stop when level is reached but starts next cycle


If the water will stop when you turn the washer off then the problem is the water level switch. It's a switch connected to a hose which goes between the inner and outer tub. You can blow on it and the water should cut off. The filling water puts pressure on the switch with the air in the hose.
If the water doesn't stop when you cut the washer off then the water inlet valve is probably stuck open. The water supply hoses on the back connect to the valves.

My whirlpool washer model LSR6232JQ1 suddenly will not fill with water (hot or cold). It just agitates and will do nothing else. My dad can fix pretty much anything..just need to know what part to order...


Try to replace the water inlet valve. This valve is located in the back of the machine and in most cases is a blue plastic assemble where the hoses hook up. This can be purchased at any appliance repair shop. Good Luck Hopes it's your cure. dave
