The washer first wound up not letting water in. Turned Off Hot water, now it will not fill on the rinse cycle, we have to lift the lid to make it fill. I was told it might be the temp. control switch.
Answer Linda, Yes it is most likely the water temperature switch W10248240 with your description it would be the place to start. This particular switch controls the water temperature, the water level, and the timer delay for certain cycles, all through a printed circuit board inside the switch. all your issues would be associated with the switch. You also want to check the wiring harness/connector that attaches to the electronic control W10104800 mounted on the back of the timer. Make sure it is pressed and locked in place on the control connector.
My washer starts agitating and filling at the same time. I was told that the temperature and water level switch will cause this to happen?
Answer Hello Douglas,
If your model number is MVWC5ESXW0, the problem can be a bad clutch, brake, temperature switch or the agitation board. If you drop the gearcase, you will be able to tell if the clutch or brake has failed. If they appear to be fine, the problem is most likely in the pressure switch W10248240 or agitation delay board W10104800.
