Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin
Estate washing machine, top load, bought new Feb 2007.
When I start the washer:
1. water begins to pour in.
2. water level does not rise, but continues to flow.
3. will only stop trying to fill when changed to spin cycle, leaves some clothes damp, others dry, all covered in detergent.
*will not fill and agitate in regular or permanent press cycles

Re: Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when...
Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.

Try to clean the magnetic door switch,some windex and a paper towell.Just do the part on the door or lid and where the lid meets the top of the magnet.Make sure this is not loose and is seated in the machine.
You may need to unplug machine and remove the door switch,take both wires and tie them togther so they make contact.Then try a wash cycle or try the spin cycle.
The door switches in the estate washers fall apart and get corroded and can stop the spin cycle.
If the machine works with the switch taken out then you will need to get a new one from whirlpool.
if you are saying that the washer finishes the load of clothes and timer goes to off and water is filling the tub after this then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.disconnect the water lines and change out the valve
Scenario 1: Your motor is dead, or the electrical connections leading to it are chewed up and no longer send electricity to the motor. If you have a voltage tester, you should see if you are getting power to it.
Scenario 2: The safety switch that stops the motor from spinning when the lid is open is compromised.. This is possible, but less likely, as the motor would still spin in agitate mode..
put the washer on warn and start to fill,turn washer off,if it keeps filling then you need a new water valve,if it does not stop filling your water level,hose has come loose or the water level switch is bad-mike
If the water keeps filling without cutting off, you either have a faulty inlet solenoide or your pressure hose and or pressure switch needs checking.
To isolate the acutal problem, start the machine on a new cycle. Change the water level to minimum or low before you start. Let the machine fill up. Keep checking the water intake as it fill up. Once the water level goes over the half way mark in your tank, if the machine starts its wash action then your pressure hose and switch are o.k. as they have signalled to the timer that the water level selected, has been reached.
However if the machine keeps filling up even though the wash action has started, then you have a faulty inlet solenoide/valve. Turn off water at the tap and get the valve replaced.
