It appears your dual inlet water valve has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi,


Kind of the opposite of these tips... your fill solenoid has dirt in it and it won't shut off...
If your washing machine will not fill, only hot or cold will fill or is slow to fill then read these tips. I have covered many of the things that can happen in these tips…

The FH means water tap closed. If you were happy with using cold only you could get a Y-piece connector and join both the red and blue inlet hose to the cold tap.

My Whirlpool Duet Washer fills up 1/4 of the tub on its own.


Sounds like a defective fill valve leaking water in although the machine is off.
First turn off your water and remove the hoses. Clean the screens in the hoses and the fill valve.
If that does not correct the problem replace the fill valve.

Front load washer fills up with water


Jamesbestor,

The water fill selenoid had junk in it holding the valve open or the seat in the valve is damaged.
Turn off the power and water, remove two screws on the back of the machine and remove the lid.
On the back left top corner are the water fill selenoids. Remove these and disassemble by undoing the 6 or 8 screws ( depending upon model ) holding the unit together. Clean and reassemble, it should take care of the problem. If not, replace the selenoid.

Washer should fill, remove hoses, check screens in hoses and or valves on machine for clogs. Verify water valves at the source are turned on. If all this checks, you need new valve installed on your washer.

Whirlpool Duet washer fills with water by itself


sounds like a faulty water inlet valve, not seating properly after closing the valve.replacing the valve is the only solution to this problem, in the meantime you can turn off your water supply in between doing loads.

not a bad habit to get into!!!!
