Have you verified that you do not have a siphoning condition? The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r587481-prevent_washer_siphoning

Please double check the installation and placement of your drain hose. If the top of the standpipe is sealed off, or if the drain hose is shoved too far down into the standpipe, this can create a vacuum. This can cause the washer to constantly siphon out of the wash tub on the fill cycle and the washer will continue to fill (as needed) to maintain the water level. In other words, what may appear to be a significant problem, can be something as simple as a simple placement issue with the drain hose.

If you have further questions, please let me know. If the diagnosis is not correct, please post back and also let me know, so that I may be able to assist you further. I hope this helps you.

The washer starts in agitation mode. Will not do anything but agitate. Is it Water Level switch that needs to be replaced?


Washers start in fill mode as it requires the level of water set to start the agitator mode.. If your machine goes immediately to agitate then I would think that the agitator control module is failed and needs replacement. have an appliance electrician check it out.

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.

Whirlpool washer fills, begins to agitate, then drains


Water siphoning out the drain line
If the water is continues to fill and water is draining while it is filling or agitating, Check the height of the stand pipe. It should be about 36" above the floor. If the height is correct it may need to have an anti-siphoning valve installed into the drain line.
moz-screenshot.jpgThe washer fills and drains at the same time only on the rinse cycle.
Shut the machine off with timer during this period and raise the drain hose. If the water continues to drain, you will need to install an anti-siphon kit.

Agitator will not agitate. Also water trickles in instead of flowing in like a tap turned on. Also water leaking under from pipe that goes into plastic component - looking from back of machine bottom...


  • the agitator has a set screw in the side of it about half way down. this may have rusted out or fallen out.
  • the transmissions may be failing (unlikely)
  • the water inlet valves (where you connect the hoses to the washer) have screens in them, they might be clogged causing the water to slowly drip in.
  • the water leak is most likely caused by a rusted clamp loosing its pressure on the hose.
  • the plastic component is the water pump
  • it might be time for a new washer

Agitator always moving


The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
