The fill valve sound like it has gotten some sand or the rubber seal has cracked. The fill valve will need to be replaced or cleaned. The valve is on the back of the washer right where the Washer hoses hook up to the washer.

I was receiving an F3E2 Error code which states something to do with the water temperature sensor. I got a new water temperature sensor and replaced. Now the washer will run fine without any clothes in the...

If the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range (23°F to 217°F
[-5°C to 103°C]) during the water-heating step of the WASH cycle.
Possible Causes/Procedure
- Unplug washer or disconnect power.
- Make sure that connections to water heater & CCU (TH2 & HE2 cavities)
connectors are not broken or with wires detached, and that connector internal
pins are visible.
- Check continuity from the water heater sensor (black wires) to CCU
(TH2 cavity) connector.
- If the continuity diagnosis failed, the Main Harness must be replaced.
- Check the resistance of heating element.
- Check the resistance of the water sensor.
- Plug in washer or reconnect power.
- Verify the washer operation by running the Diagnostic Test cycle.
- After the diagnostic test has finished, unplug washer or disconnect
power and wait for 15 seconds.
Water Temperature Sensor
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Disconnect the wire harness from the water temperature
sensor and measure the resistance of the sensor. Use the
following table. An abnormal condition is an open circuit =
infinity; Water Temperature Sensor must be replaced.
Temperature Results
32°F (0°C) 35.9k ?
86°F (30°C) 9.7k ?
104°F (40°C) 6.6k ?

Water will not stop running into washer

one of 2 things can do this,first unplug the unit from the power if it continues to fill then its the water fill valve thats bad,second if it stops filling when unplugged from the power outlet then its probably a plugged pressure switch line from the tub so the water pressure cannot switch the pressure switch diaphram from fill to wash cycle,open the cover and remove the pressure hose from the tub and blow into it and you will hear a click in the pressure switch its connected to,then replace hose onto tub side and blow into the other end of this same hose and make sure theres air movement in the tub as you will see and hear bubbling noise

The water runs in the tub but never stops. Even if you put it on spin to run the water out. The water never stops till it runs over the top of the tub. Is that something in the main control timer that is...


Their are 2 possibilites causing it to overflow

1) the water inlet valve that the hoses from the house plumbing attach to is sticking open,when it sticks it will stick open regardless if thier is power to the machine or not,so to determine if that is the problem,start the washer and quickly unplug it,if the water continues to fill, that valve is sticking

2) the water level switch is defective,do the same as far as starting it,if the fill stops when power disconected it's the water level switch that is in need of replacement

Good luck, i hope this helps and if it does please give me a 4 thumbs up rating

Whirlpool top load Model #WTW5500SQ0 water continually flows into washer, water has to be shut off at the wall

If the water continues to run when you unplug the washer - replace the water valve. Part# 8578343
If it stops when you unplug the washer - problem is likely in the water level switch or silicone tubing coming to it. If the tubing is attached to both the tub and the water level switch and there is no holes/cracks in it - replace the water level switch. Part numbers: switch 8577844, tubing 3347780

Washer won't stop filling

if you can turn the washer off while it is still filling. and the water continues to enter the machine you have a bad inlet valve.
Do me a favor turn the washer to fill, with the washer still running unplug from the wall. If the water is still entering the unit you have a bad inlet valve

Does not work at all! will not even fill with water!

  • Test the water level switch
  • Check that the drain hose is positioned roughly as high as the top of the inner tub
  • Before testing the water level switch, unplug the washer or shut off the power at the fuse box or breaker panel to avoid an electrical shock hazard. The water level switch (aka pressure switch) senses the water level in the wash tub. It does this through a plastic tube which runs from the switch in the control console down to the side of the outer tub, near the bottom . The tube is filled with air. As water enters the tub it also enters the tube. As water climbs inside the tube, it pushes on the air trapped inside and increases the air pressure. When the air pressure reaches a certain level, it triggers the switch.
    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.
    Inspect the air tube for kinks, breaks or damage. The tube should also be free of water. The tubing should be securely connected to the bottom of the outer tub and to the bottom of the water level switch.
    The water level switch has three connectors. Label and disconnect the wires from the switch. Test the switch for continuity using a multitester Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1. It will be necessary to test each of the three possible pairs. For example in the image below, test pairs 1 & 2, 1 & 3 and 2 & 3.
    terminals.gif Place a probe on two terminals and note the reading. Now move one of the probes to the other terminal and note the reading. Finally test the third pair and note the reading. The multitester should display a reading of infinity or continuity for each test. In this test two of the pairs should read infinity and one should read near zero resistance (continuity).
    Now blow gently into the air pressure connection and retest. It should click and you must maintain the air pressure while testing. For the two pairs that read infinity one should now show good continuity. The pair that previously gave of reading of continuity should now give a reading of infinity.
    If the switch fails either of these tests, it should be replaced.
