Similar to the person in this post, we have a Whirlpool YLSR7233EQ0 (16 years old) that has recently started behaving the same: water won't shut off.
The washer will successfully run through whatever cycle that is selected, but the water won't stop. Cold or hot, doesn't matter.
We disassembled the washer/casing today to troubleshoot based on some information we've seen on the internet;
- cleaned silt out of cold water intake screen in back.
- checked the tube that controls the small/medium/large water level - it is connected, no blockage.
- and cleaned some 'gunk' from the tub and so on while we were in there.
We haven't resolved the problem but wondering if it might be electrical - the cycle selector button, when you push it in to STOP the cycle this usually stops the water but the water is continuing to run in. Suggestions on parts or next steps?
