Question and Answers

Q:

Why do the load sensor and timer keep going bad in my Whirlpool washer model WTW57ESVW0?

A:

I am not aware of one component burning out the other in regards to the timer and the load sensor. Failure of these two components at the same time could happen but would be considered rare. Since the washer will not fill or agitate but will spin, you likely either have a problem with the timer, the load sensor or a wiring failure between components. I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair this failure. If the washer is still under warranty, the failure should be covered.

I have not heard of widespread problems with this type of Whirlpool washer. The load sensing feature is relatively new. It is likely too early to tell whether a potential common problem exists with this type of washer.

Q:

Whirlpool Washer (WTW57ESVW0) - Agitates for 10 seconds before filling with Water at the beginning of Cycle.

A:

Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem wit the washer. The washer should fill to a low water level before it agitates. If your washer is agitating before filling at all, I recommend replacing the load-sensing switch. It controls the voltage to the timer. If it is turning the motor on the relay in the load sensor switch is stuck. The part number for the load sensing switch is W10177795 and can be ordered from our parts website: Sears Parts Direct .

I have added the instructions for accessing the load switch below. Please make sure to unplug the washer before you service the washer.

Feel free to add more details if you need further assistance on the washer.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Q:

What is the correct sensor switch for my 2-yr-old Whirpool Auto Load Sening washer? WTW57ESVW0

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Part # W10177795 has beed superceded by #W10292584. Both part numbers are load sensing switches but the new part number is W10292584. The load sensor #W101292584 can be ordered from Sears Parts Direct.

The washer should drain all the water before it advances into the spin cycle. If it's not draining all the water immediately after the first drain cycle ends, then I would have to have restriction in the drain pump, tub hose or drain hose.

If it does completely drain but you find water in the tub after the final spin cycle, then it could have a faulty load sensor, timer or water inlet valve.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
