Hi Endorphin,
Most will tell you that you have a failed start switch... I disagree with most. What you have is a failed water valve. Yup. A water valve. See, there's a thermistor sensing unit on the inlet valve. When this has failed, the washer will display the symptoms you describe. Unfortunately you can't just replace the thermistor, the whole valve has to be changed out. It's easier than you might imagine.
All you need is;
1.) Pliers
2.) Phillips screwdriver
3.) 5/16" nut driver/socket
4.) 1/4" nut driver/socket

UNPLUG THE WASHER BEFORE DOING THIS REPAIR!

Open the washer door and remove the 4 screws at the door hinges and remove the door. On the opposite side, you'll see 4 more screws. Remove them, too. Now, on the top panel... open the soap dispenser lid and you'll see 4 screws there. Remove them AND the dispenser lid.

Now grasp the top left and right of the front panel and pull forward to about a 45 degree angle then lift it off of the clips at the bottom. OK, look closely at what you have revealed... just below the top panel you should see two 5/16" screws that are holding the top panel retainer clips (they're shaped like an upside down "L"). Remove those screws and remove the clips. Now lift the top panel just like the hood on a car.

At this point, you'll see the valve located at the back left. Obviously, you'll need to turn the water off and remove the hoses (remember which is Hot and Cold, OK?) There will be one screw (1/4") holding the valve in place, remove it then remove the valve. Remember where the wires go, then remove them too.

All that's left is to install a new valve (part number 22003834) and rebuild the washer in the reverse order of disassembly.

If you have any further questions, please write back. If this has taken care of your washer issue, please rate this solution as "FixYa" Deal?

I have a wtw5600xw0 Whirlpool washer. When I press the start button the sensing light and lid lock lights turn on. Then after a few seconds the lid lock light goes off and the sensing light stays...


Swich off the machine, try some WD40 on the door mechanism (on machine lock, not on the door) and open & shut for a minute or two. Then try the machine, spin only just to try.

Rate pl, if solved, or dont!

Try to turn on but it wont stay on


If that dryer has a 4 wire start switch which simply twists a quarter turn to get off then replace it.

Child lock light stays on - & cant start mc programmes


HI I KNOW IT SOUNDS DAFT BUT HAVE YOU TRIED SWITCHING THE CHILD LOCK OFF? I CANT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHICH BUTTONS IT IS ON YOUR MODEL BUT YOU USUALLY HAVE TO PRESS 2 BUTTONS AT THE SAME TIME (& SOMETIMES HOLDING THEM FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS) RATHER THAN JUST 1 TO SWITCH THE CHILD LOCK ON/OFF. IF YOU STILL HAVE THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL IT WILL TELL YOU WHICH BUTTONS YOU PRESS TO SWITCH CHILD LOCK ON/OFF HOPE THIS HELPS!

Switch on the machine and presss the start/cancel button this should take the "test" off the display. Then press and hold both the start/cancel and on/off buttons for a few seconds. The display will show d off and then the waher will work as normal.
