    Most common repairs needed to fix a Whirlpool washer

    Dispenser Replacement

    A defective washer dispenser can result in a failure to allow water into the wash tub and the incomplete release of detergent, fabric softener or bleach at the designated stage of the wash cycle. This issue often arises due to the integration of water valves into modern dispenser assemblies. Signs of a defective dispenser include detergent remaining in the dispenser compartment after a cycle, signaling incomplete dispensing. You may also notice no water or an insufficient amount of water in the tub. There is also the potential for water to leak into the wash tub from the dispenser.


    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    A malfunctioning electronic control board can lead to various failures in a washer. This is because the board serves as the brain of the washer, controlling crucial components such as the water valve, drive motor, drain pump, and cycles. If the electronic control board fails, the washer may not power up or display the cycle status. Additionally, it might fail to fill, agitate, spin, or drain. In some cases, a shorted board may emit a burning smell.

    Water Valve Assembly Replacement

    The water valve assembly controls water flow into the washer. A clogged water valve inlet screen will prevent the wash tub from filling with hot water, cold water or both. Electrical failures in the valve may also prevent the valve from opening to allow water into the tub. The valve connects your home’s water supply to the washer. A faulty valve may begin leaking into the tub or around the connections to the water supply hoses. If you suspect a faulty water valve assembly, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect the washer and replace the valve if needed.

    What to expect when you experience a Whirlpool washer no water issue

    How is the no water problem fixed?

    Correcting most no water problems usually involves replacing the dispenser, electronic control board or water valve assembly. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for a washer that has no water

    When the washer has no water it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of washer failures.

    What to look out for with a washer no water diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your washer problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
