Major Appliances/Whirlpool Wash Machine WTW5200VQ2


QUESTION: The machine washes and drains properly,but then doesn't fill with water for the rinse cycle.  The process ends at the point.  I can, however, turn the knob to the spin cycle and that works.  Everything works, but the rinse cycle.

The question is...why doesn't it fill with water for the rinse cycle?


ANSWER: Turn your temperature control to a cold cold setting if you have one and then try your unit.  Does it fill at all?

QUESTION: The machine has a 'cold only' rinse. When the dial was set for Cold, the wash cycle didn't fill, but when the temp was put back to Cool, it started to fill. Yet the rinse cycle spins only ... no water.

I am suspecting the cold water side of the inlet valve is defective.  Part number is W10144820 and your cost is 47.95 + 8.95 shipping through us.  when you set to cold water was nothing happens.  All rinse cycles call for cold water thus, no rinse water on the rinse cycle. I have attached a picture of the valve for your convenience.  Prior to ordering, verify your home water supply valve is turned on and you have water coming out of your home water valve hose.  Should you choose to order, follow this link to our website where you can scroll down and fill out the secure order form to process your order.  If you have any problems, concerns or need further information, feel free to reply to this email or for Parts Order Only, call 570-622-6441.  Keep in mind ordering through us helps continue this free on-line help available for you and many others.  Help those that help you.
