Whirlpool Washer, Model number WET4027EWO, water starts

Customer Question

Whirlpool Washer, Model number WET4027EWO, water starts entering tub and in ten seconds it quits. I turn off machine and turn it back on and it does the same thing.
I lift the lid and put it back down and it does the same. I turn the knob to heavy wash
and it does the same thing, only getting a couple of quarts of water each time.

Replace the water valve it's bad super common issue on these units. If you're handy, you can make the repair. If not, the job cost $300 roughly. I work on the honor system here @ Just Answers.

is it coming from the water inlet valve. I have three of these brand new, two of them are doing this.

You have faulty water valves or flood safe hoses installed. It's possible the screens are clogged but not likely if these are new. I work on the honor system here @ Just Answers.

What is the easiest way to replace the valve?

The only way to replace it is to take the machine apart.
