Default Cold Water Won't Shut Off

I recently replaced the water lever control switch on my Whirlpool washer and that seemed to work. Now several days later, the cold water won't shut off after the tub is full and starts to agitate. Now what is wrong?

Does water enter even if the unit is unplugged? Check the water inlet valve. The cold water side maybe stuck open and bad. Replace the valve.

The problems with our Whirlpool washer started when the water level would not fill to full as set. And sometimes the washer wouldn't shut off and overflow. This didn't happen all the time. Then the water level was always low regardless of the setting. I decided perhaps the problem was the water level switch. I then replaced this and it seemed to be working better, however, the cold water would still run for a short time after the hot water shut off and the machine started to agitate. (The cold water would continue to run even when we shut off the machine or unplugged it.)

I think you are right about the water inlet valve. I checked the screen and it was full of black particles (like sand). I cleaned this out and it seems to be shutting off (the cold water) by itself but still very slowly. I will try replacing this as soon as I get the parts. Thank you very much for your assistance! Rick S.

yup, I think it is that water inlet valve. Also check both ends of the hose for the same screens.

Good Job
