This Whirlpool Washer has (4) Temp. Settings, Cold, Cool, Warm & Hot. When you turn it to Warm and start the Washer just cold water comes out. Before when you tryed to wash in warm the washer ran hot water for a while then cold water it would do that until it was full of water then started washing, that was the way it regulated the Temp.
You will want to check the water temperature thermistor. The thermistor will be located on the inlet valve assembly and should have a resistance reading at 50 degrees of 97K to 102K ohms, at 77 degrees 49k to 51K ohms and at 104 degrees 26K to 27.2k ohms. If the resistance does not check ok then the thermistor is faulty and the water inlet assembly would need to be replaced. The part number needed is W10423125.
Very little cold water comes out that goes into tank. How can I check if its clogged?
Answer Hello Sonny. You remove the hose and look for clogged screens. If all is clear, you will need to order and replace the water valve on the unit.
Machine does not drain - hose is not clogged - when cycle gets to drain cycle it starts to spin & drain then shuts down? Do I just need a new water pump/
Answer Tom, Yes the drain pump 3363394 is the place to start. Your washer should drain then spin, not spin and drain simultaneously. The excess water and "drag" from a faulty pump, could cause the motor to overheat and trip the overload protector and the washer would stop running.
My washing machine makes a hum for 5 seconds, after that it turns off.
Answer Jose, Once you get the cabinet off, the pump 3363394 is the first place to start. dismount it from the motor, and check to see if there is an article stuck in the impeller or if the impeller is seized. If the pump is the issue, it can cause the motor to hum and "trip" the motor overload switch and shut down. If the motor still hums with the pump dismounted, then you will need to test the timer circuits and the motor windings circuit to determine which part has failed.
