Whirlpool LSR7233E does not fill agitates right away

I have a Whirlpool Supreme 7 cycle 2 speed washer. At the beginning of the wash cycle the machine starts to agitate right away but does not fill with water. If memory serves, the cycle used to wait for the tub to fill before agitating.

Filling the machine manually with cold water will cause the washer to agitate and then stop, then agitate some more, etc. I can hear clicking noises ... sounds like some sort of solenoid going on and off. After a minute the washer will stop with a low buzzing noise. Letting the machine sit for 30 minutes allows the scenario to repeat.

Manually advancing the program to spin/rinse causes he machine to empty the water in the tub and enter the spin cycle. No rinse water is used but the machine does spin, emptying the water, then shuts off.

Any ideas how to fix

    Verified the following at the pressure switch: 120V to purple and pink, no voltage to purple and tan while at the "fill" stage of the cycle.

    The hot and cold water lines into the washer have good pressure and the screens are clear.

    Using an ohm meter with power disconnected shows purple to tan is a
    closed circuit with no pressure. Purple to pink is an open circuit.
    Blowing into the switch does nothing. Confirms results from voltage
    tests I guess (diagnostic tests thanks to catriver). This means power to motor and none to water inlet I think.

    My kenmore 80 series is doing simular stuff. Mine fills and agitates at the same time.The water level switch will shut off when the water gets high enough. The agitation is very fast, faster than normal and faster than heavy duty..agitation is the same too fast speed at all settings. The problem started when Iafter I took the machine apart to clean it. Tub, pump,gear box and all.so what did I mess up?

SOURCE: whirlpool gold top load washer (7 months old) won't agitate or spin

It sounds like the motor drive coupler has broken. This means the motor is no longer turning the gearcase, but it is turning the pump. It will be repaired under warranty if it is only 7 months old. You should have a full one year warranty on the washer. If not, he can probably fix it, but it will need a new coupler. He can tilt the machine back and see the coupler between the motor and transmission from underneath. I can walk you through replacing it if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it if it is still under warranty. There could possibly be something more major wrong that has caused it to break and some of the factory servicers are real picky about customers working on a machine under warranty. If you need it running tonight, he may be in trouble.

Post back if you need further help or have more questions.

Thanks/mike

Your door lid has a switch that makes these functions work.First open the lid and look at the right side of it.Does it have a arm on it?If it does follow the direction where it is going to hit and now listn closely while your lifting the door up & down at this contact  can you hear it click?If its not clicking  or the arm is broken  off the lid replace  the lid switch/or the broken lid switch arm.

SOURCE: GE Profile Prodigy Machine not agitating

If the motor runs when it is suppose to be agitating, but the agitator does not move, pull the agitator straight up and out of the machine. Sometimes this is difficult, but you can slip a belt or similar object under the agitator, attach it to a broom handle and yank up on it. Now take the bolt out of the agitator drive collar and remove it. If you can not turn the splined transmission shaft with your fingers you are in luck and should be able to just replace the can shaped agitator drive spline. (part number WH49X10042 ) If you can turn that splined shaft with your fingers you are looking at a new transmission.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

The washing machinge is not completing the complete cycle


When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

  • It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


  • It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

My machine will not fill with water.


It sounds like the switch that controls the water level is stuck ,thereby telling the controller that it is already full of water, causing it to start agitating right away.
Give the top of the console panel a good tap, this may release the switch if it is stuck.
If this does not work, then possibly the pressure hose is blocked that controls the switch.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.
