Whirlpool washer dryer combo stack wont fill
« on: September 18, 2017, 10:07:12 PM »

I have a customer with a 4 month old Whirlpool washer dryer combo unit (dryer on top) model number WET4027EW1.


The washer wouldn't fill except on rinse mode.  My tech thought it was the timer, cause he said it wouldn't even advance on rinse mode.


Put the new timer in and still almost the same thing.  It will fill and wash on rinse mode, but no other mode. (it does advance now in rinse mode and apparently did not before)  I think its gonna have a problem with the autoatic temperature sensor switch part number W11103597 (was W10913966).


Could not find the manual on the machine.


It is under warranty, but he did not want to wait for them.  Too slow.


The temp control switch is factory order... Sheesh.  Want to maker sure we didnt miss something that might be available. 


Anyone have the manual for this or seen this before?

No service manual at service matters only the tech sheet and Part manual.

It turned out that the switch and the timer were bad.  Put the new temp control switch in with the new timer and it worked.  Thought, hmmm maybe it was just the switch. put the new switch in with the old timer and it still didnt work.

I guess some how the switch damaged the timer or the timer damaged the switch.

Damn electronics!
