A bad water temperature switch could be the cause why your Whirlpool washer is not filling properly the tub with water.
The washer may not be filling at all or not filling with cold water or not filling with hot water.
In order for your Whirlpool made direct drive washer to be able to fill properly with water, electricity have to flow to the solenoids on the water valve according to the selection on the switch.
So if the washer is not filling properly the first thing you need to check and make sure is that the water faucets are opened.
You be surprise of the many times I have gone to a house to service a washer that is not filling properly and find out that problem was that someone has turn the faucets off and forgot to turn them on.
The next thing you need to do is to turn the water faucets off and disconnect the washer fill hoses from behind the washer. Put them pointing to the washer tub or to a sink.
Turn the water faucets on and see if the water is coming out of the hoses with good pressure.
If the water pressure is good, then you know that the problem has to be in the washer water mixing valve on in the water temperature selector switch.
