My washer's cold water will not fill on any wash cycle, added cold water manually by pouring water in while on delicate cycle it would agitate but when it got to rinse cycle would not fill with cold water and so I did it manually then it wouldn't do anything and I turned it to normal cycle rinse with water still filled for load size which was small and it would continue. I also tried it in causal cycle and it would continue...is it the timer? Thanks
Answer Hello Jesscc, it sounds more like the water inlet valve is the problem more so than the timer. There are two solenoids on the valve, one for the hot and one for the cold. It sounds as though the cold one is the problem. The part # is W10144820. Also make sure the inlet screen on the cold side of the old valve is clean along with the filter screen on the fill hose where it attaches to the faucet is also clean. Rarely does the timer cause the issue you're describing.
After use machine went thru wash cycles then rinse water did not drain out but kept adding water till over flowed. Could this be a faulty timer switch? Thanks,
Answer Hello Hayworth,
This will be a clogged pressure switch hose or a defective pressure switch. I cannot provide part numbers without a valid model number. I think the one you listed is probably a Kenmore model number but there are digits missing, probably the three before the "." since Sears decided to put the first three characters before it and in many cases, in a different font.
Whirlpool top loading washer clothes are wringing wet after final spin cycle. Only does this with heavier loads (small or large) such as 4 pair jeans, throw blankets, etc. One repair guy says its a bad timer. Says spin cycle should last at least 7 minutes, mine is running around 3 or 4 minutes. Another repair guy says it's a bad clutch assembly. Two totally different scenarios. What do you think?
Without knowing the model number we would not be able to get an exact time that the unit should spin. The issue could be that there is a clogged drain pump that is not allowing the water to spin out all the way. If the timer is advancing too quickly this would cause the unit to not spin long enough. The spin cycle should last around 7 to 9 minutes. If it were the clutch it would not spin at all.
Whirlpool washer does not fill, agitates right away.it fills water in extrarinse only. Spins and drains after extra rinse cycle. Other modes it does not fill with water, it only spins.
You will want to check to make sure that the pressure hose is not kinked or clogged. If the pressure hose or air dome are clogged this will cause the unit to agitate immediately.
Once the timer has completed the cycle it refills and continues to wash another cycle. Is this a bad timer?
Answer Hello Jimmy. Based on the information you provided, the timer is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit.
