Default washer only works on spin
Model Number: estate taws800jq0   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years

I am in the middle of trying to diagnose a whirlpool estate washer for a friend. It worked fine and without warning, would not work when a new load was tried. The only setting that seems to work is spin. I have checked water flow, power from the outlet filter screens and all are fine. The lid switch was replaced about 2 months ago and the unit does work in the one setting. I checked the water level switch for tube clogging and checked for resistance and got zero ohms. I have checked the inlet valve and seem to get a reading of 1,150 plus ohms. This seems high but would this cause all other functions besides spin to cease? If so, can I "trick" the washer to see if the other functions engage to verify that the timer is not faulty? Where do I go from here?

Here is a couple of things you can do.

Blow into the water level switch tube and see if you can hear the switch "click". If so, it is probably ok. Then check to see if 110-20 v is going to the valve assembly when the machine is supposed to be filling. If not, the timer is probably at fault. If the valves are getting power, the valve assembly is at fault.
