Whirlpool washer model WTW5100VQ2
« on: March 01, 2012, 06:22:50 PM »
Have this Whirlpool washer model WTW5100VQ2 that will not fill with cold water.If you select cold as the temp seclection it will not fill.Any other selection warm or hot it fills as it should.Also when the timer gets down to the rinse it stops, it does not advance or fill with water.If you move the timer to spin,it does spin.Does not fill with cold water or go into the rinse cycle.What is wrong with this washer?

I checked for 120volts at water valve,did not have 120 volts.So does this mean temp switch?

The cold water fill valve has gone bad and no longer works. It is part of the water fill assembly which includes both hot and cold water valves and can only be purchased as an assembly. It is part number W10140917. Don't buy a temperature switch, that is not the problem. Good luck.

just a quick note, but if you haven't you should check to be sure your getting water through the hoses to the machine... had one today with flood safe hoses and the cold water hose had tripped... unscrewed it and showed the customer....    reset the hose and it worked fine...

I like those Flood-safe hoses, they make me lots of money. :)   I found out you can eliminate the nuisance tripping by installing them backwards. Of course, that defeats the purpose of them.
