My 8 year old Whirlpool top loading washing machine has

Customer Question
My 8 year old...

My 8 year old Whirlpool top loading washing machine has gradually begun leaving small amount of water in the bottom of the spin tub after each wash. I suspect a faulty fill valve is leaking by.

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

8 years old, mod. wtw5300vw2

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

No, too tired & disabled vet.

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

No, only the residual water. if more than $176 to repair would opt to replace. would be different when I did my own work (marine engineer)

Does it fill in between washings or just not draining out well?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Appears to drain, then slowly (dripping) to accumulate small amount of water; probably very low drip rate.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no call, just best guess

If it pumps out good and fills slowly after, the valve is indeed seeping. The video at the link below shows how it is replaced!
