I just installed this washer. It's about a year old, has been sitting in my house as I remodel the house. The power comes on, and it starts to run a cycle. Maybe moves once or twice, then nothing for about 20 or so minutes, until it says its done. I checked the hoses, and water flows thru the hoses. The unit isn't drawing any water. Any thoughts?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(pre-typed to cover hot and/or cold!)
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve
With power off, if it is hot AND cold fill, turn one or the other off and see which one is causing the problem. Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0( If it's cold fill only it's clear which one!!
If is only happens when there is power on it could be the PCB malfunctioning and will require checking by the service call.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating. Thanks and good luck! John C
Hello-I came across this several years ago. Some whirlpools have a preprogram where the water temp. is already defaulted to the type of load and color. As you assume the white should be hot or warm. The rest of the selections are probably cold. The manufactures can be driven to apply energy saving features into their products so most cycles are probably cold. If all else fails, when you make a selection let water fill into the tub about 5 minutes and carefully check to see if the water is warmer or colder. You also might be able to pull up owners info on the net if you have the model#.
I have the same machine which lasted about three years before the circuit board went out. Read the reviews on Amazon.com about this machine - it is not well liked by owners. Take off the plastic top with the two screws at the back (you'll need a star point screwdriver), remove the printed circuit board that is held in place by plastic clips and send it to me for $100.00. Take the rest of the machine to the dump - it's a piece of ****!
This sounds like a plumbing problem. Lets see if we can isolate it. Turn the valves off behind the washer and remove them from the washer. Remove the washer drain hose from the stand pipe. Stuff one of the hoses into the now vacant drain line and turn the water on. Then do the other hose. Any noise? Now reconnect the fill hoses to the washer and reinstall the drain hose to its' place. Turn on the water valves at the wall, set the washer to a cold/cold cycle and start it up. Listen for noise. Now shut the machine off and set it for a hot/cold cycle and turn it on. Listen for noise. If you get no noise now, it's all good. If you're getting noise from just your hot water, your water heater is set too high and you have steam propagating in your plumbing. Your washer water valves (where the hoses connect to your machine) will only do this if you have low water pressure coming from the wall. Still, it'll be a plumbing problem.
