Customer Question
My whirlpool ywfw9050xw01 front...

My whirlpool ywfw9050xw01 front load washer works fine with just hot water, but for warm or cold it begins to fill then errors 8-1. I’ve checked the water pressure, inlet screens, pipes for blockage and drain pump. All fiine. I tested both connections for the cold water inlet va me and they appear fine. Since it works fine for hot water then I do t think it would be the pressure switch. What can be impeding the cold water flow?

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

The unit it around 4-5 yrs old and other than the model number I don’t know what to call it

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

If possible yes

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

Not that I can think of.
