Question about Whirlpool Cabrio WTW6600SBT Top Load Washer
Water only partiall fills then starts several sequences in rapid succession without completing any one cycle
Remove the operations panel securement,maybe screws in lower front of panel and/or clips under the sides just pop up with a putty knife between the sides of panel and top of washer and tilt panel forward to access the back of panel.Connected to the water level switch find a hose connected to it.With ALL water out of tub,blow ALL the water out of said hose/tube.This will reset the water level to proper/what you set it to/when you wash.Explaination.As the tub fills with water,water will also go into this tube I spoke of.As the level in the tube rises,it puts pressure on the void above the water in the tube.This pressure increases as the water level rises and the diaphram in the level switch will shut water off at what YOU set it to.Now you know something you didn't and will remember.IF those other processes you spoke of are still doing an irregular thing,your timer is bad.But just blowing the water out of the tube,and reconnecting it,should work just fine.Have a good wash day.Regards,Rigger.

Jmars, under the consol there is two pressure switches. One controls the fill and the other is back-up incase the other fails. It sounds like your water pressure switch is tripping too soon. Try putting the washer into a self test mode by pressing in this order soak--soil level---soak--soil level. The machine should enter a test mode. Let it run it's test and see if you come up with any error codes. The pressure switch is the one on the left under the consol. It will be marked OPR, the part number is 8054766. The consol will lift up by using a putty knife under each end, pushin on the clips and lifting up. The back panel of the consol is removable. Catriver..post back

We had the same problem. Luckily, we bought a 3 yr extended warranty. The appliance tech came in, pulled out a screw driver and tightened the lid. He said the left side frequently comes loose and that is where the sensor is that tells the machine the lid is closed. Tighten up the lid and see if that solves it. This washing machine BLOWS. We have had the warranty people out 4 times since we bought it. It's only two years old. First there was no hot water, the tech opened the machine and the connecter to tell the machine to use hot water was never connected at the factory. Water leaking from the bottom, don't remember what that was. Oil leaking from the bottom, replaced trnsmission seal. Fills with water and stops, loose lid. What a lemon.

I also have a Whirlpool top load Model # WtW57ESVW auto sensing load washer. I have it it almost a year and it has started to do exactly the same as described above. The repairman said today that it needed a "auto load sensing switch" which he has ordered for me.
Note - you can use your washer until the problem is fixed, but you have to make sure you manually stop the spin cycle prior to it just finishing, for that is the time period that the water starts to fill again.
I also noted that my local Lowes store does NOT sell this model anymore - probably too many customer complaints about this exact same problem. As soon as I showed the problem to the repairman this AM, he immediately diagnosed the issue - said that it was a recurring issue with this particular model.
