A few things may cause a grinding noise during the spin cycle. If the washer fills normally, but when it starts to AGITATE or SPIN, it makes a noise, this is usually caused by a bad motor coupling, bad transmission, basket drive assembly, or drive motor that's starting to fail. I also wouldn't rule out the clutch. It's really hard to tell without being there to see and hear what it is doing. I would also hate to tell you to call a repairman, but it may be wise in this situation because, even if you DO know what the problem is, it may be beyond your capabilities to repair. I could give you step by step tips on how to replace the parts, but diagnosing the CORRECT one would be the challenge. I hope this helps you some. PS The likely suspect in this case would be the transmission. Not a guarantee, but a guess.

While it is filling up try this. Unplug the washer from the wall, if the water still runs then you need to replace the mixing valve. If the water stops then take the screws out at the base of the console and flip the controls back. Look for the clear hose that goes to the water pressure switch and make sure that it is connected. If it is connected take it off the switch and blow through it to see that it is clear of any obstructions.
If this only overfills after the first ore second wash then you may have the slow drain and the drain hose is in the downspout too tight.
Possible items needed;
#1 mixing valve
#2 pressure switch
#3 plumber

Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back again? Try it without clothes inside, does it spin? Check the lid switch for continuity. Then probably its the motor coupler check if its connected directly to the motor first, you can replace it if you should its worth about $40++. Next check the clutch and transmission, those are the parts where you should go and check. But if its a transmission problem it might cost you around 200 bucks or more so better to buy a new one instead.

The fill switch is a very sensitive device. You can test it by blowing into the tube, listen for the switch to click, or use an ohms tester. They are actually adjustble, the adjuster screw usually has glyptol (thread lock) on it. I would replace one before trusting an adjusted one.

Whirlpool top loader agitates when filling up
Nothing, I'm not sure what the problem could be because it does not happen all the time and when it does, it usually fixes itself. M# WTW57ESVW1

your water supply perhaps it is too low pressure ....

so the machine isnt filling fast enough

so check at the machine side of the cold water filler hoze
in the machine end is a filter cone
you need to carefully pull it out with flat nose pliers and clean it
if this doesnt fix it then perhaps the inlet valve is bad...

We have a Whirlpool dishwasher 8575637 and the top wand seems to have stopped spinning-even butter is not getting cleaned off of the butter dish. We tested it by running it with an empty bottom rack a

Sorry to hear about your problem. If a butter dish does not clean I expect little or no flow from either wash arms.

Need to check the water level after the fill cycle. Open the door after 90 seconds after starting the machine. The water should be about two inches deep.

For testing a small amount of water can be added by hand into the bottom of the wash tub to confirm that the wash problem is no or low water. Add water and continue cycle to determine if that is the root cause.

No or low water check the overfill float switch in the front bottom of the machine. It can get stuck in the up position. The float in the at rest position(down) operates a switch that allows the fill solenoid to actuate.

Second culprit for low water is the stop valve at the sink connection. The valve has a rubber seat that has known to come lose and plug the fill line to the dishwasher. This is a common failure of the valve. If so repair valve (repair of the valve does not require removal of the valve it can be done in place).

If Stop valve is OK and dishwasher is not filling check the water fill valve in the dishwasher. Also a common failure. It is located behind the lower front cover and requires someone who is qualified to service. A replacement would be specific to your machine because of calibrated flow rates. Low water could be an indication that the screen in line at the valve is plugged.

If water level is OK than I would check for plugged water filter screen or pump inlet.

Good Luck

Washer will not fill with water.

Make sure your water is turned on, I am not making fun of you but make sure. If the water is on shut it off remove hoses clean the screens and then replace and try. If nothing it is probably your inlet valve. Good luck!

Water very slowly fills Whirlpool washer

Check the screens inside the water valve. They get plugged sometimes. Also check both ends of your hoses. When installed most companies put screens or screen (1) in the cold water line at the valve.

it may be a bad water valve or just a clogged screen. take off the cold water connection from the back of the washer and clean out the screen you see inside the plastic piece the hose fits on. do not take it out, clean it while it is still inside.

Possibly a bad fill valve. If you're hearing a noise, it sounds like the valve is getting power, but isn't opening to allow water in, or is clogged. I would check your valve inlets on the back of the washer, first. Turn off the water and disconnect the hoses on the back of the washer. The water inlet screens are located in the valve fittings. Take a cotton swap and clean them out thoroughly. If they are clear, you may want to invest in a new replacement valve. Let me know if you need to pursue this option and I can give you the steps necessary to replace. It's not a very difficult repair job. I hope this helps you.
