Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

My Whirlpool Top Load washer cleans the clothes, spins, drains and then as soon as its done spinning it begins to fill up again as if I started a new load. It fill up about 6 inches of water and then stops. Then it stays like that. Any help?

    The machine has never overflowed and its actually sprays water after the spin cycle as if it were starting a new load but only fills part way and then stops. Could these solutions still work??

I believe the timer is faulty, it is skipping the off position, going to the first cycle, then stops thinking that is the off position.

Hi

A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch .
A defect--or an obstruction-in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's 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. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

Please accept the solution if it’s helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Washer starts agitation during water fill up and after spin cycle ends washer fills back with water and leaves clothes very wet.


I also have a Whirlpool top load Model # WtW57ESVW auto sensing load washer. I have it it almost a year and it has started to do exactly the same as described above. The repairman said today that it needed a "auto load sensing switch" which he has ordered for me.

Note - you can use your washer until the problem is fixed, but you have to make sure you manually stop the spin cycle prior to it just finishing, for that is the time period that the water starts to fill again.

I also noted that my local Lowes store does NOT sell this model anymore - probably too many customer complaints about this exact same problem. As soon as I showed the problem to the repairman this AM, he immediately diagnosed the issue - said that it was a recurring issue with this particular model.

Washer stopped during spin cycle


Hello, try to checked the pump filter, and the pump is actually working. then I would suspect a draining problem.
If filter clean and pump works fine then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
Thanks

The machine fills and drains on wash cycle but willnot spin


C1. Your motor was stopped due to overloading, inbuilt device, reduce weight of clothes (put less clothes). Press 'stop' & 'cancel' to clear the display.

How abt a good rating? Thanks

Washer keeps filling w/ water, only stops when changed to spin


Your drain line is too low.
OR the drain line is restricting air where it enters the drain stand pipe.
Remove the drain line and hold it up high.
Turn the washer on to fill. It should fill then stop.
This example should explain what you must do to correct the drain line problem.
