Will not fill with water when turning on water comes on for about a minute then shuts off if you push knob in then pull it back out again does same, will not fill the tub with water.
Answer Hello Anita,
This sounds like the temperature switch W10114118 has failed. Being an electronic control, there is no way to test it other than replacing it. Do not throw the old one away so if it is good, you can return it for refund and try the next most likely suspect: the water valve 3979345.
My old belt driven washer gets stuck in drain mode. If I manually slide the swing arm on the pump it holds for the wash cycle but then stays in drain mode for the rest of the cycle. Could it be a bad Wig Wag (solenoid)?
Answer Hello Paul,
You are correct. The wig-wag shifts the unit from agitate to drain. If the solenoids are not energized, the unit will remain in one state. You should first check the wiring to the wig-wags first as these had issues with the wiring breaking, shorting, and burning in the connector at the main top. If the voltage, (120Vac), is reaching the wig-wag solenoids and they are not energizing, you can change the wig-wag with confidence that it will resolve the issue. Many wig-wags have been changed needlessly because of a wiring issue.
I just got a 2 yur old whirlpool duet washer and dryer. They traveled 400 miles to reach my doorstep. The washer vibrates terribly ( moving across floor ) when in spin mode. It also makes an very unhealthy metal on metal sound when spinning. I dropped the washer on its side after installing the drawers... about 1.5 ft. did I screw it up ?
Answer Paul, You may have, You attached a dryer model number, A washer model number would be a big help. You may be able to remove the rear panel, top of the washer(and on some models) the lower access panel and observe the upper tub mount springs, the lower tub supports(look like shock absorbers) and see if any of those components were damaged or dislodged when the washer fell over. You did double check and make sure there was no vibration in the floor and that the washer was installed on the pedestal properly, and all four feet of the pedestal are on the floor solid. Good Luck and Thanks
