Default Extremely slow filling
Model Number: wtw5300vw1   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This Whirlpool is 2 to 2 1/2 years old and you can time the fill rate with a sundial. The water flow has been checked into a bucket and is fine, the hoses are not kinked and the screens have been changed, the drain hose is not pushed too far into the drain (2-3 inches), and the water valve has been changed. One more symptom is that the machine seems to start filling not great, but OK, and after a few seconds, the flow rate decreases drastically. It also doesn't seem to matter what the water temp, load size or cycle is set at. This problem has been getting worse since the machine was about a year and a half old. It was never great even when it was new.

Since this has been happening from the beginning I suspect the valve assembly has been bad from the beginning. Try changing it out.

The valve was changed at about a year and a half. That's why this is so confusing.

Okay, see if you can meter the leads to the valve assembly when it is supposed to be filling. If the current is dropping off then the time becomes suspect.

Thanks. I was wondering if the timer might be suspect. So power to the water valve solenoid may be dropping... I will try that. Thanks.
