Re: top loader leaks when filling
You need to take the bottom cover off and see if it;s not the fill valve,, the water line goes into a little valve usually with hose clamps this would be the fill valve, sometimes they crack after a while and need to be replaces it has 2 wires going to it, unplug them take off the hose clamps remove it, get a new one and reinstall it,, but before taking it out look with a flash light and make sure it might just be a hose on the macine side of the fill valve that why it onloy leaks when finnling

Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up
Nothing, I'm not sure what the problem could be because it does not happen all the time and when it does, it usually fixes itself. M# WTW57ESVW1
your water supply perhaps it is too low pressure ....
so the machine isnt filling fast enough
so check at the machine side of the cold water filler hoze
in the machine end is a filter cone
you need to carefully pull it out with flat nose pliers and clean it
if this doesnt fix it then perhaps the inlet valve is bad...
Need more information. What type of leak (fast, slow, seep, etc.), when does it leak (when it is filling, draining, all the time, or don't know), and where is the leak coming from? If water runs out as fast as it is filling, you may have a drain hose that is ruptured or has disconnected. If it is a very slow leak, you may have a connection that is working loose. Or, it could be as serious as a hole in the outer drum. Is this a top loader or a front loader washing machine?
Water can't leak out the top from overloading unless the entire tub is full of water which is a major malfunction, or an inlet hose between the powder drawer and tub is somehow blocked (extremely unlikely).. Are you using topload detergent? Normal detergent can foam up and out through the drawer and leak onto the floor..
Normally water enters through the top of the powder tray to disperse it into the tub. pull out the tray slightly while filling to see how this works. You might be able to identify that the water is not flowing properly. Normally you can really pack into a front loader, I've been thrilled with my 5100 for 8yrs.
If this doesn't help let me know and I'll suggest next step.
Send it back and get yourself a nice top loader w/o digital settings. The front loaders look good and all but i see so many unhappy post about them I myself will wash in a bucket before accepting on of the front loads free.
hi wanda, most top load whirlpool units, they make the sears kenmore models, are around 3.0 cubic feet. its not that important for a top loader, but when going to a front loader thats how they rate them. what i would recommend is you buy a unit that will do the laundry that you will need to do for the next 15 years. what i mean is if you have 2 or more young children, that you will be doing laundry for the next 15 years, then a full size front loader would do you good. size 3.5 c/f or larger, like a whirlpool he4 or he5. if it is just for 2 people then a smaller unit would be better, like a whirlpool duet or sport model. the reason for the choice is a front loader needs to be filled up for it to work properly. doing smaller loads in a front loader will cause them to shake and not work as well. now be ready as the new washers will cost about 1,000 bucks. another suggestion for 2 people would be the whirlpool cabrio top loader. i like them alot and they have very few parts to fail and have a good reliability. good luck and happy shopping. p.s. remember sears will match prices and give you 10% off the best price!!
You either have a defective pressure switch or water inlet valve. Start to fill the machine with warm water so that both solenoids on the water inlet valve (hot and cold) are activated. After about 30-60 seconds, push the timer knob in to stop water flow. If the water continues to flow, replace the water inlet valve. If this is the case, it may take a few times of starting and stopping water flow to allow solenoid to heat up and become symptomatic. If water flow stops abruptly each time knob is pushed in, you most likely have a defective pressure switch (water level switch).
