Whirlpoos Washer with 2 malfunctions
« on: July 07, 2009, 05:00:25 PM »

My washer will no longer fill with water.  I have to hose it in.  Then it worked just fine.  Now it has stopped draining/spinning.  I've tried self-diagnosis over the internet.  I think it may be the water level fill switch and the lid switch.  Any suggestions or comments?

Also on the menu is progressive timer failure, open water level switch  and/or voltage related issues.
