      Answer

      You can use the old hoses, change the washer,,,, But remember that they will be there for 10 plus years,, Why take a chance.. Then again if they are almost new as you said,,,, One thing to remember is that Hoses do wear out. I have rentals and over the years several have sprung a leak, none have burst.. one was the new metal covered type. Most important is to be sure to level your washer, and not let them get too out of balance. One thing i do is put the sound reducing rubber pads under the feet.

        why does the washer not fill up with water? its a big machine but water does not even cover the clothes? Ij've tried different settings. help   (2 Answers)

          Answer

          I have the 3.5 top load Whirlpool. The way I understand it is because its high efficiency and when you put the clothes in the basket it senses the weight of the clothes and puts the amount of water it needs. To have more water I found if I use the different levels for the type of clothes I use you get different amounts of water. Like dark clothes with blue jeans I use the heavy load and have no problem. If you don't want that you can switch to deep water wash and it should always fill to maximum water. I saw many complaints but I read my instruction book and it helped with my questions I needed. Hope this helps you out.

        If I select the full fill mode that fills the entire washer, can I let my clothes soak for several hours before washing them?   (2 Answers)

          Answer

          Hello Gregg! You may manually soak your clothes by pressing the START/Pause button and leaving the lid closed. Once your desired soak time has elapsed, press START/Pause again to continue the cycle. As long as the lid remains closed, your soak time can be longer than 10 minutes. However, if the lid is opened during the soak and remains open for more than 10 minutes, the water will pump out automatically. Thank you for your inquiry on our Whirlpool appliances.

          WHAT IS THE DB RATING OF WHIRLPOOL WASHER # Model: WTW4816FW   (1 Answer)

            Answer

            Not sure of the DB rating but I will tell you that there is a lot of clacking of sensors. Best to do the washing and then leave the house for an hour. Doing a wash in the evening is like trying to get use to living near a railroad track.
