Another thing customers have complained about is when the washer is set on cold water only, hot water enters the machine in short bursts. Since both of the machines I encountered were under the first year warranty I replaced the electronic control, the water temperature switch and the water valve assembly. My guess is that the thermistors in the water valve go bad after awhile. I refuse to waste time diagnosing these sorry ass washers under warranty.
I hope Whirlpool will be sorry they ever made these washers and ditched their dependable direct drive top loading washers, especially after they see warranty claims for complete wiring harnesses, gearcases, electronic controls, etc.
