Why Agitate & Fill/Rinse
My washer is not the one posted for this question (it wasn’t listed).
Mine is a Whirlpool top loader #WTW57ESVW1.
I want to find out what causes the wrong behavior, or how to troubleshoot it if nobody knows what’s wrong with it. This is what it does:
During the agitation cycle, if you lift the lid to look at the agitator, and then close the lid, the washer starts the fill cycle or rinse cycle so that it over-fills the tub, then continues to agitate. If I lift the lid again, it’ll do that again, and again until it’s overflowing (not that I got that far, but…just saying!).
What may be causing this wrong behavior? How can I troubleshoot it?
