How do I maximize water levels in my whirlpool wfc7500vw washing machine? In other words, which cycle uses the most water, and/or how I can turn off the water sensor so that the machine uses extra water?


The water levels in you machine are set by a pressure activated diaphragm that is controlled by the knob with the levels settings around it or by the computer if you have a press button type.. Heavy or long wash cycles use the most water with light washes using the least. So to explain if you are washing blankets and you have a full 7.5 kg load to wash you would set the water level at high and heavy or full wash. You can disconnect the tube to the control unit but if you do that the bowl will keep filling over the top and the machine would not know when to start washing as the control unit reads enough water and moves the power to the motor while closing of the water solenoid. If you follow the instruction in the operators manual you will find that you save the most water at any wash requirement.

It will not go into spin cycle, the belt is attached and it washes and rotates. What is the cause?


If your washer is not spinning you need to check this part.
  1. Test the lid switch
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the centrifugal switch
  4. Test the water level switch
  5. Inspect the motor coupler
  6. Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
  7. Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  8. Test the motor
  9. Inspect the pulley
  10. Test the transmission

Water overflowing and wont go into wash mode


Behind the backsplash of the machine (where all the knobs and controls are) are several important mechanisms. One of them is a plunger, which detects the water level in the tub. When the water reaches the specified level, the plunger drops. This completes the circuit which kicks the cycle from fill to wash.
I suspect that this plunger is either dirty or broken.

Hope that helps.

May be a bad water level switch.
Open the control panel, with a full tub of water bump the water level switch with your hand. If it starts to agitate, replace the water level switch.

Maytag washer overfilling


Easy fix. Do this: Remove the rubber tube coming from the bottom of the tub up to the water level switch right there at the switch itself. Blow through it to remove the sediment in the bottom of the tub so that air pressure from tub to switch will be kosher. Put the hose back on the water level switch tight and pump out any water in the machine.

Maytag Performa water level


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.

Spin cycle


The washer needs to be leveled with a level first.If it is level than the clothes should float evenly in water.Not level everything floats to the un even side and they will bunch up.

Washing Machine won't stop filling up


Try resetting your water level control. If that doesn't help then set the water level control to the lowest setting and observe if level exceeds that setting. If so, you may possibly have a faulty water level control, or an obstruction in the air dome or water level control hose. This can be a tricky 1 to diagnose for a novice.
