The agitator would come on as the water was filling the tub and it would only fill half way. I replaced the timer #8557301. That did not fix the problem. I replaced the pressure switch #W10339326. The machine worked well for one load. The next load, it filled with water as normal and then stopped. It will not agitate or spin. At most positions on the dial, it either does nothing or adds more water to the tub. What should I try next?
Answer Jim, Try these checks next, Check and make sure the lid switch 8318084 and wiring are OK, check the lid and hinges, make sure the hinges aren't loose or the lid is "moving" and breaking contact with the lid switch. Remove the timer wire harness block from the timer and check the timer terminals for being bent or loose, check the terminals inside the harness block, make sure they are in and "locked" inside the block. If all's OK, the issue should be in the water temperature switch 8564140, the circuit board can disrupt the water valve operation and cause erratic fill cycles and operation.
Tub fills to overflowing on small, med, and large loads.
Answer Hello John. If you can stop the water from entering the machine by turning off the timer or unplugging the unit, you will need to look for a bad pressure hose or replace the pressure switch. If the only way to shut off the water is at the shut off for the water hoses, you will need to replace the water valve in the unit.
My washer started filling the water and agitation at the same time. I am thinking the issue is with water level switch and about to purchase AP4568366. Please confirm that my issue will be fixed with this replacement.
Answer Hello Roman,
This would not be in the pressure switch since the contacts in there cannot make in both directions at the same time. This means the unit could not be filling during the unit trying to agitate. Your issue will be either in the control board 3955728 or in the timer 3953248.
