Washer doesnt fill water but goes thru all cycles

I turn knob to start wash cycle and it automatically starts agitation cycle with no water

    My Whirlpool top loader started acting the same way today. When starting a load, the agitator kicks in immediately and no filling begins. Normally, agitation does not begin until filling is complete. I just replaced my clothes dryer drive belt this morning and looked forward to getting some laundry done when the washer started acting up.

After contemplating the issue, I decided that the machine "thought" it had filled. That led me to believe that the water level control was not working. I happened to have a control from an old washer that I could make fit. After replacing this control, I'm back in business. Everything is working fine although I now have only 3 water levels to chose from where I previously had 5. I hope this helps. Good luck. Mark

I pull the knob to do a regular wash and nothing happens, no water no agitation. However, when I turn the knob to rinse it that works. This suddenly happened, was working before. Is it the knob?


Rinse on most washers is cold water your wash cycles can be cold hot and even warm. Problem You may have is a bad water feed valve Or Timer and possible bad wire harness at motor to timer
check water valve Turn washer to regular wash cycle pull knob on will washer fill ?
if water starts to fill then change washer temp if washer has this.
if water comes out on all settings water valve is fine.
Check the water both hot and cold that it is turned on;at faucet.
Your Kenmore Most likely has a bad water valve check for hot water side clog or not working.

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

    Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


    Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
    Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
    After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

    Amana washer only works on delicate cycle


    Open the control panel. Unplug the timer and then plug it back in good and firm.
    If it does not work correctly after that,
    Replace your timer.

    Whirlpool Washer will not progress to the rince cycle.


    that is either a problem with the timer , or with the cold water hose at the back of the machine, see the following:

    Agitator not working 90 series model # 11026912691


    Hello aksward,
    Welcome to Fixya.

    Washer stops, won't fill, rinse or agitate


    • Check the following:
    Is the power cord plugged into a grounded 3 prong outlet?
    Is the indicator on the Cycle Control knob properly lined up
    with a cycle? Turn the Cycle Control knob to the right slightly
    and pull to start.
    Are the water inlet valve screens clogged?
    Are both the hot and cold water faucets turned on?
    Is the water inlet hose kinked?

    • Does the water level seem too low, or does the washer
    appear to not fill completely? The top of the agitator is
    much higher than the highest water level. This is normal and
    necessary for clothes to move freely.
    • Has a fuse blown or is the circuit breaker open? If problem
    continues, call an electrician.
    • Are you using an extension cord? Do not use an extension
    cord.
    • Is the washer in a normal pause in the cycle? The washer
    pauses for about 2 minutes during certain cycles. Allow the
    cycle to continue. Some cycles feature periods of agitation
    and soak.
    • Is the washer overloaded? Wash smaller loads.
    • Is the lid open? The lid must be closed during operation.
    Washer will not agitate or spin with the lid open.
