SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL TOP LOADER OVERFILLING WATER

While it is filling up try this. Unplug the washer from the wall, if the water still runs then you need to replace the mixing valve. If the water stops then take the screws out at the base of the console and flip the controls back. Look for the clear hose that goes to the water pressure switch and make sure that it is connected. If it is connected take it off the switch and blow through it to see that it is clear of any obstructions.
If this only overfills after the first ore second wash then you may have the slow drain and the drain hose is in the downspout too tight.
Possible items needed;
#1 mixing valve
#2 pressure switch
#3 plumber

SOURCE: Water level issues on the Whirlpool washer.

It's overfilling If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

It's underfilling The water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

The water temperature is incorrect The temperature of the incoming water determines the temperature of the water in your washer. You get either hot, cold, or a mix of the hot and cold water that's currently available to the machine. So if the cold water that enters the machine is very cold--or if the hot water entering the machine is very hot--the warm water is affected. 

If you live in a Northern climate, unless you adjust the hot and cold water taps that supply water to your washer, the warm water supplied to your washer is usually hotter during the summer months and colder during the winter months.

Check the following.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

Valid VIN numbers use the letters A-Z and numbers 0-9, except for the letters I, O, and Q. If the VIN is not working properly, check to see if letters and numbers have been accidentally inverted. Make sure the letter O was not entered in place of the number 0. Also, make sure the correct number of characters has been entered.

I typed in the key but it did not work.


Some characters can easily be mistaken to another character. Please check:
  • The letter B and the number eight (8)
  • The letter O and the number zero (0)
  • The letter Q and the number zero (0)
  • The letters VV and the letter W
2007 Microsoft Office product keys also do not contain certain characters such as 0, 1, A, and E.

How to read a VIN
1st character- Identifies the country in which the vehicle was manufactured.
For example: U.S.A.(1or 4), Canada(2), Mexico(3), Japan(J), Korea(K), England(S), Germany(W), Italy(Z)
2nd character- Identifies the manufacturer. For example; Audi(A),
BMW(B), Buick(4), Cadillac(6), Chevrolet(1), Chrysler(C), Dodge(B),
Ford(F), GM Canada(7), General Motors(G), Honda(H), Jaquar(A), Lincoln(L), Mercedes Benz(D), Mercury(M), Nissan(N), Oldsmobile(3), Pontiac(2or5), Plymouth(P), Saturn(8), Toyota(T), VW(V), Volvo(V).
3rd character- Identifies vehicle type or manufacturing division.
4th to 8th characters- VDS - Vehicle Descriptor Section. These 5 characters occupy positions 4 through 8 of the VIN and may be used by the manufacturer to identify attributes of the vehicle. Identifies vehicle features such as body style, engine type, model, series, etc.
9th Character - The check digit "character or digit 9" in the sequence of a vehicle identification number (VIN) built beginning with model year 1981 (when the 17 character digit format was established) can best be described as identifying the VIN accuracy.
A check digit shall be part of each vin (since 1981) and shall appear in position
nine (9) of the VIN on the vehicle and on any transfer documents containing
the vin prepared by the manufacturer to be given to the first owner for purposes
other than resale. Thus, the VINs of any two vehicles manufactured within a 30
year period shall not be identical. The check digit means a single number or letter
"x" used to verify the accuracy of the transcription of the vehicle identification
number.
After all other characters in the VIN have been determined by the manufacturer
the check digit is calculated by carrying out a mathematical computation
specified. This is based on vin position, sample vin, assigned value code,
weight factor and multiply assigned value times weight factors. The values are added and the total is divided by 11. The remainder is the check digit number.
The correct numeric remainder - zero through nine (0-9) will appear.
However, if the remainder is 10 the letter "X" is used to designate the check
digit value/number.
10th character- Identifies the model year. For example: 1988(J), 1989(K), 1990(L), 1991(M), 1992(N), 1993(P), 1994(R), 1995(S), 1996(T),
1997(V), 1998(W), 1999(X), 2000(Y)------2001(1), 2002(2), 2003(3)
11th character- Identifies the assembly plant for the vehicle.
12th to 17th characters- VIS - Vehicle Identifier Section. The last 8 characters of the VIN are used for the identification a of specific vehicle. The last four characters shall always be numeric. Identifies the sequence of the vehicle for production as it rolled off the manufacturers assembly line.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) are used to uniquely identify motor vehicles. Prior to 1980 there was not an accepted standard for these numbers, so different manufacturers used different formats. Modern day VINs consist of 17 characters that do not include the letters I, O or Q.

What year was the 110.28812790 washer made?


The dates of manufacture are determined by the SERIAL numbers on the appliance. The following links explain:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

Your Kenmore is manufactured by Whirlpool. The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured. The digit preceeding the first set of numbers, identfy the YEAR.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880528-determining_age_maytag_appliance

On Maytag models, the last two letters in the serial number determine the date of manufacture. The first letter is the YEAR, the second letter is the MONTH.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How old is my washer


to determine your model year. Sorry for the delay!! You have to look at the letter that is the third-to-last character on the model number. The original website had this formatted in bold red, which a very stupid blogger girl who shall remain clueless (sigh?me) had omitted. On our own model number, the second-to-last letter is a T Example model numbers: LRS6233BW1= 1994 SF367PEYW1= 1992 LE6685XPW1= 1985 ET22PKXXW0= 1991 EV150CXKW0 = 1982 K = 1982 or 2001 L = 1983 or 2002 M = 1984 or 2003 P = 1985 or 2004 R = 1986 or 2005 S = 1987 or 2006 T = 1988 or 2007 V = 1989 or 2008 W = 1990 or 2009 X = 1991 or 2010 Y = 1992 or 2011 A = 1993 or 2012 B = 1994 or 2013 D = 1995 or 2014 E = 1996 or 2015 F = 1997 or 2016 G = 1998 or 2017 H = 1999 or 2018 J = 2000 or 2019 so urs shud be 2002...... thank you.... i dont remember any washing machine lasting for 26 years so definitely not 1983

Need year of Manufacture and User Guide


The manufacturing date is in the serial #. The first character will be a letter. The second character is the year code. It will either be a number or letter. If it is a number then it is pre 1990. 0=1980, 1=1981, etc, until 1989. If it is a letter, X=1990, A=1991 B=92 C=93 D=94 E=95 F=96 G=97 H=98. J=99 K=2000 L=01 M=02 P=03 R=04 S=05 T=06 U=07 If the first 3 characters are letters then the 3rd letter is the year code. The first two digits after the year code are always the week of the year of manufacture. Example CD12345 D = 1994 12= 12th week of year Hope this helps. I have no info on any codes prior to 1980. I am not sure about the manual, but if it is still available you can probably get it through Whirlpool or Sears but you may have to call their #800's to order it. They don't list everything on the websites.
