Customer Question
I purchased a whirlpool...

I purchased a whirlpool washer second hand. this washer H2Low Wash system can be hooked up to the sink, for use. I am having trouble getting the washer to take in water and begin the wash cycle. What can I do?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Whirlpool is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

WTW4950XW2 - Model#, serial # C22132895. not sure about age Thrift store purchase given approx. 1year - good looking condition

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

According to the store it is in working condition. We purchased the adjustment for the spicket but it does not seem to hold on so that the water can go into the washer
