This problem is commonly attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or a pressure switch malfunction. The following link explains how to diagnose and repair each problem yourself:

Whirlpool wtw57esvw washer won't fill


I had the same problem, started filling right away, also when the wash cycle is done, the clothes are wet, it starts to fill again after spin cycle. I intended to buy a load sensing switch the next day, but it was $76 dollars. i removed the switch, gentley pryed it apart, there was 2 small thin brass/copper contact tabs, I bent them slightly to make better contact. I put the switch back together and reinstalled it, put the machine back together, and it has been 3 months with no problems.

The washing maching overflowed. We were just washing a medium load of white clothes. Lucking we were home and cuaght the problem quickly and switch the machine to drain and spin and it went down quickly. I...


Hi, read about your problem. Be sure that clothes are put in washer before the fill. Some people have gone the other way around, and it messes up the water fill switch. Its just a thot . Its a possibility that the water pressure switch is going bad. Before that, empty the tub of all water. Let it sit overnite. Next day, lift lid see if there is any water in bottom. If there is, water valve is leaking. It too would probably need replacing. Until you know which of these or both, is causing the problem, I would not let it run while you are gone. Part numbers;
wh12x10321 pressure switch $19.41
wh13x10024 water valve $25.99.
Hope this helps and thanks.

After I take the clothes out of the washer there is no water in there but when I go back the next day to do another load there is water in the drum. What is the problem?


Sounds like the fill valve is not shutting all the way off. If you shut off the water after use and no water shows up you should replace the fill valve before you get a flood

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

70 series Kenmore washer


POWERUP, YOUR WASHER COULD BE THE LID SWITCH OR THE COLD WATER VALVE. AT THE END OF THE WASH CYCLE, THE MOTOR WILL SPIN OUT THE WATER, BUT ONLY IF THE LID SWITCH IS ACTUATED. IF THE SWITCH IS BAD, IT WILL NOT SPIN OUT THE WATER AND THE TIMER WILL NOT ADVANCE FROM THAT POINT.
IF THE WASHER SPINS, THE NEXT STEP IS TO FILL WITH WATER FOR THE RINSE CYCLE. MOST WASHERS USE COLD WATER FOR RINSES. IF THE COLD WATER VALVE IS RESTRICTED OR FAULTY, THE WASHER WON'T FILL. IF THE WASHER WON'T FILL, THE WATER LEVEL SWITCH WON'T ACTIVATE AND THE TIMER WON'T ADVANCE TO THE NEXT STEP.
