So after both my Whirlpool washer AND drier started crapping out a year and a day after purchase, I called a repairman for the dryer.  After getting gouged, I decided to try to fix the washer myself.  I'm technically apt but have no experience fixing washers. 

What is happening is the washer (Whirlpool top loading washer, model# WTW57ESVW0) will begin agitating as soon as I turn on a new cycle, while it is filling up.  I also noticed that it seems to begin to fill during the spin cycle, because the clothes are definitely spinning but they end up sopping wet afterward. 

I'm thinking it's a bad timer?  Thoughts?  Bueller?

Wow... Thanks for the quick reply!  Far be it from me that I should question your solution, but I just want to gain a better understanding.  The Water Level - Load Sensor Switch is misinterpreting the water level so that it agitates early and fills erratically?  Why does the water still fill at the beginning while it's agitating?  You've already been very helpful so I don't expect a full dissertation or anything, but some insight would definitely be appreciated!!
