Very little hot water runs in tub


you either have a problem with the house water supply going to the washer and you can remove the hot water hose from the washer,first shut down the water,stick the end of the hose inside the washer and turn the water supply back on,if the water comes out normal then you have a bad water valve on the back of the washer.call your parts store and give them the full model number off of the washer,open the lid,follow it down to the bottom and right under the bottom of the lid you'll see the model number

Whirlpool utlra care II clothes washer shuts off when filling - push knob in and pull out it starts again - once full it completes remaings cycles


Hi, the water-level switch regulates your washer's fill volume. This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch.

STOPS IN MIDDLE OF CYCLE, HAVE TO OPEN LID AND SLAM IT TO COMPLETE CYCLE. ALSO AGITATOR DOESN'T SPIN WHEN WATER IS IN TUB.


A washer that fills and doesn't do anything, or stops right after the wash cycle and then does not advance to the rinse cycle and drain is commonly caused by a lid switch malfunction. The lid switch is usually mounted under the washer top casing, on the right hand side on most top load models. It is activated by a plastic piece on the lid (called a "Lid Strike") through a small hole on the rim of the wash tub opening. In many cases the lid strike breaks off the lid, or the lid switch becomes loose and no longer makes contact. Inspect the lid to make sure the lid strike is still intact, and then inspect the mounting screws (adjacent to the small opening on the wash tub rim) and make sure they are snug. If you determine the switch to be defective, the following link explains how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385198-replacing_lid_switch

If the switch requires replacement, a new one can be purchased on line at searspartsdirect.com, pcappliancerepair.com, repairclinic.com, appliancepartspros.com. Just use your model number as your search criteria. All these sites offer competitive pricing, so shop all them for the best price.

NOTE: You do not have to drain the washer to complete this repair. Once the lid switch is adjusted or replaced, the water will drain. This will save you time in having to bail water.

PS Slamming the lid switch is not recommended. This will actually break the switch or bow the lid and make the problem worse over time.

Washer continues to work even if water is not filled to top and even if i try to stop continues to spin


A defective pressure switch can interfere with the cycles that depend upon the switch to indicate when water has filled or emptied from the tub. It can also result in underfilling or overfilling of the tub. The switch routes current from the timer control to the temperature switch and the water inlet valve when the tub needs to be filled. Once full, the pressure switch cuts the current and reroutes it to the motor on the timer control to continue the cycle.

Water fill stops


Your lid switch is probably damaged or loose. Examine the lid switch on the right-hand side of the washer tub opening. There are two screws that hold the switch in place. Check to see if they are loose. In addtion, the lid should have a small plunger that depresses the switch when the lid is closed. Make sure it is intact and not broken. If the switch is tight and the plunger is intact, the switch has probably been damaged and needs to be replaced. If you have the type of washer that has no visible plunger and/or switch, the lid switch is locate in the rear on the left hand side and has a small arm attached to the lid that activates a contact when closed. Often this arm can get bent and will not engage the lid switch contacts. A simple adjustment (sometimes) can correct this. I've seen a lot of these switches where the casing on the switch separates and the contacts will not close. Slamming a washer lid is highly NOT recommended just for this very reason. The switch is an easy replacement and costs roughly $35. If youy post back with your model number I can research to find a part number for you. I will also give you step-by-step instructions on how to replace it. I hope this helps.
