Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines
Simple fix. But you might need a tech. Sounds like your water level switch needs fixed or replaced. Most work on air pressure. (Huh? your saying? :) A tube (you can't see) runs down the verticle length of the tub. As the tub fills with water the air in the tube increases the air pressure within it. There is an air pressure switch on top of the tube and the "Washer Load Size" switch adjusts so that when the air pressure is correct (water level in the tub) meets the requirements of what you set it to, then it turns off the water inlet valve and starts the washing cycle.
If this "water level tube" gets disconected, it will not work. Also if it gets cracked (it is plastic) or gets plugged somehow, or if the switch fails, you wil have water, water everywhere.
