I have a used Maytag MVWC7ESWW Washing Machine that I picked up for free. The previous owner said it wasn't filling on any cycle. She told me a local appliance repair shop told her it was the inlet valves. I opened the washer up, removed the valves and applied power directly to them, while hooked to the water lines, they both worked fine. I was told it could be the load sensing switch or the flow meter. Is there a way to test either of them and does that sound like the problem? Everything else works fine, it just will not fill on any cycle for wash or rinse.

Grand Master Funk, thank you for repling back. I tested the voltage going into the ATC switch, the gray molex plug read 1.5V, the other plug ran between 0.1V and 0.5V

You didn't mention if it starts to Agitate without Water ?
if yes, then bad Load Switch

JTK13601,

When you get the new switch, would you please post the "REV" letter printed on the back of the switch? I'm curious if the revision has changed recently.

Thanks!

I received this message from the Whirlpool Oracle:

Morning!! It looks like you probably have it nailed without me. On those switches,,,,,,, they suck. It's all about the inputs. The switch is getting inputs from the timer telling it when to fill. If the inputs are there, and no power out of the switch.................................bad switch. The only thing I alwasy have them do is ohm out the coils to make sure nothing popped it and pull the press. hose off the switch to eliminate it as an issue . And of course, the inputs from the timer is what people forget including our techline.


Whirlpool Techline rocks! :rocker:

Ah the dreaded load sensing switch, I have one on my kitchen table that I just pulled out of the bottom of my toolbag from last week.

REV E and it was dead. I'll try to look at what is in my truck this week and see what rev they are at now. "E" means at least 5 attempts to get it right and still trying, must be nice to fail at fixing a part 5 times and not be fired.
