The water level is controlled by the pressure switch which is located behind the load level selector knob on the control panel. Before assuming you have a defective pressure switch, however, read the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r762094-washer_overflows

In many cases the small air hose comes loose from the pressure switch and causes the symptoms you are experiencing. It could be that during the process of the repairs you made, you might have inadvertently knocked the air hose loose. Check the air hose to ensure it is still attached to the pressure switch and check the electrical connections to ensure they are not corroded. If these preliminary measures do not work, replace the pressure switch. If the pressure switch requires replacement, you can search for the best price at these web sites:

If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Hello,Sounds like a problem with either the inlet valve or the pressure switch, the way to determine which is bad... while the machine is filling pull the power plug..if the water keeps filling it's the inlet valve that is going to be bad..if it stops filling it's going to be the pressure switch. The pressure switch is located in the control panel and has a small rubber pipe attached.once you have figured which it is replace it good luck.
If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again..Mike

Whirlpool washing machine does not agitate or spin


Check for a broken motor coupler between your motor and transmission. Pull washer away from wall and tilt the back against the wall to look under it. You may find some rubber or hard plastic pieces lying under it. To replace it you have to remove the water pump thats attached to the motor by removing two clips. Then remove the motor in same way. Then you have access to the coupler parts. Remove them with a screwdriver.

Kenmore 80 series washing machine fills but wont agitate draqins but wont agitste or spin


My bet is on the drive coupler. if you can here the motor run and the machine will drain water then 99.9% it will be the drive coupler.

This coupler is behind the motor and is what conects the motor with the transmission.

Model 110.24902200 will not agitate and will not spind


If the washer fills and and empties and you can hear the motor, then the most likely fault is a broken coupler. The water pump is mounted directly on the rear of the motor and the motor/pump assy is attached to the transmission using a three piece coupler (part # 285753, $18.50). One of the two identical pieces of the coupler is attached to the motor output shaft and the second is mounted on the transmission input shaft. The third piece is a rubber part that allows the coupler to break in certain situations to protect motor. When this coupler fails the motor will still drive the water pump but the agitator will not move. A broken coupler can be identified simply by looking at it. Flip the machine and look for it between the motor and transmission.

My washing machine doesn't spin any more


If you hear it doing something and im assuming it fills with water ok then I think the coupler on the direct drive has broken.....

Motor coupler
Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Our washing machine doesn't turn in the stage


Either your motor coupler is defective or your transmission is defective.  Check it during the wash cycle if the agitator does not move then it is your motor coupler, if not it is your transmission.  To replace the motor coupler you will need to remove the casing from the machine.  The coupler is located between the motor and the transmission.
