Washer agitates while tub is filling with water. any ideas?
Normally when the washer is filling and agitating at the same time the issue would be a stuck contact in timer which will cause this issue. The timer part number is 3955340.
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.
