Question about Whirlpool Calypso GVW9959K Top Load Washer

Need help The washer will not fill all the way up with water, and it cycles in and out, I checked the pressure switch it is ok, I checked the water valves and they are working ok, I have had to change the pump out twice in four years and i kind of think this may be the problem again, After the pump runs for a while i think it gets hot and starts to cycle in and out, Thanks for any help

Re: need help

This washer does not fill with water. It is an energy efficient machine using very little water. The cleaning action comes from the constant recycling of the water

Getting f20 error code, how to check flow meter operation

Check for stuck socks or something just under the door seal at the bottom of the drum. Check filter for blockage and all outlet pipes. Check the pressure switch hose for any holes as it may have rubbed on the drum and created a small hole in it. Make sure flow meter is level and not at any angle.

I have a model lse7806ace maytag stackable washer/dryer unit. Initially, the washer would not do anything. I replaced the lid switch and it then filled and agitated at the same time... but when it went...

Ok , when you pull out the washer knob to start it the water fills . Can you stop the filling by pushing the knob in? if so the water valve is ok.
There is a sensing tube from the tub which connects to the pressure switch. This is what causes the water level pressure switch to shut off at the correct level. I would suspect this as they replaced the pressure switch and it keeps filling. If this is the case there is a small hole which will cause the pressure switch not to turn off the fill valves.

You can check this by removing the tube and submerging it in some water then blow in the tube while blocking the other end , if you see bubbles it is leaking and needs replacing.Hope this helps

Water keeps filling and overflows never starts ccle

have you checked the pressure switch its what tells the machine theres enough water inside also theres a small tube that connects the pressure switch to the tub if this comes loose then you would have no pressure and the water would also keep running the two pieces im talking about are part number 10 and 811 in this schematic you would have to follow to where 811 plugs into on the oppisite side and the way to test if the pressure switch is good is remove the hose and the switch and blow air into the switch you should hear a sound like a slight crinkling of a can if you do then its good if you have any further questions message me back and please rememeber to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to help others in the future Thanks Rick

I have a GE whdsr209 washer. Stuck on filling with water.

Ok, take a deep breath and blow....
No, really...
Ok, to understand how to fix the problem you have to understand a little bit about the control part of the machine.
Ok so here we go...
First thing is the first stage which is filling the machine with water.
So how does the machine know how much water to fill, well the answer is pressure.
If you remove the front panel of the machine and look on the side of the tub, you will see a tube attached to a plastic hull.
Air gets trapped inside the hull and as the water fills the tub the pressure inside the hull increases. The tube attached to the hull routes the pressure building inside the hull to the fill pressure switch. The more water filling the tub the more pressure generated and supplied to the switch.
If the line becomes clogged with buildup or developes a leak, the whole process will not work, thus the switch will not become engaged stopping the flow of water into the machine.
How do you check for opperation of the line and switch,
well remove hose from hull and as the tub is filling with water, blow into the tube creating pressure and thus activating the pressure switch..
You will hear the switch click and the machine should stop the fill process and start washing.
Rarely but possible, the pressure switch is faulty.
Mostly, it is a clogged line, disconnected line, or line that has been damanged by rodents or pets..
Hope this helps
Good luck...

The water valves didn't shut off. the washer over flowed. when i changed the cycle the vaslves shut off and the pump empties the washer. when i start a fill cycle, the washer over flows

Check for a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the tube and when it reaches a certain level, it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start the appropriate cycle. Check for any obstructions in or damage to the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity means a bad switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

Washer will not complete the cycle.

Check if you have power to the inlet solenoid/valve where the hose connects to the machine. There is a thin tube running from the outer drum at the back of the machine to a pressure switch. This pressure switch controls the water level in the washer. Remove this tube from the pressure switch and blow back into the machine. There could be a blockage in the tube. To check if the pressure switch is faulty, pull the tube off the pressure switch and let the machine fill. If the machine fills to a high level, switch it off before it overflows. Replace the pressure switch.

Maytag stacked washer/dryer Model LS7804

OK it may be one of 2 things. I would check the lid switch first. On some maytags the have a lid switch that if it is not working properly it will not let the washer fill. If it will not fill the washer will not wash because the pressure switch did not activate the timer to wash. If the switch checks good you might have a bad timer. If you open the control panel you will find a tech sheet with the wiring diagram. I would follow the fill cycle and check the components. You might also check the water valve to make sure its ok too. But its very rear that both the hot and cold would go at the same time. Good luck!
