Hi,


New here looks like it could be a learning experience. Washer overflows intermittently. Cold water overflow only. Whirlpool Series 2000 purchased in 1989.
 Does any one think they would replace the cold water fill valve and the level switch too since it will already be apart? Or could it be some other thing.

The darned thing is only 16 years old so I hate to get a new one.

Yes, replace the water valve. If it only overfills on cold, then the fill level switch is good. It works the same no matter what temp you select.

Your valve is mechanically sticking in the "on" position.

If it is a top load washer open the lid about half way and the tag will be there on the wsher.  If ti is a front loader should be around the door area or on the door after it is opened??
