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?

Model LSR8433KT0

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