Whirlpool WTW5300VW2
« on: October 01, 2013, 10:55:48 PM »
I have a problem customer that has this washer.  He says in the Casual cycle it will only spray cold water.  I tried all of the cycles and it worked fine for me.  Since these washers have the problematic electronic ATC switch, I replaced it.  He called and told me that it's still spraying cold water in the Casual cycle.  He has called me 14 times today to tell me this.  I think he has nothing better to do than sit and watch the washer run all day long.  I studied the wiring diagram and, unless I'm crazy, the timer doesn't tell the ATC switch to dispense cold water only in that cycle.  Am I crazy?  Is this guy crazy?

I tried to refund his money and he refused. I checked and it was a bad timer. He said that he would pay for the timer. Installed it and havent heard from him since.
