That is the strangest Whirlpool washer control panel I have ever seen in my life!!  (as far as cycle selection, using the machine).

Thanks for these pics.  :-D

The machines are 1987 market year per the S in the model numbers.

The serial numbers are coded for the year and week of manufacture.  Can you get those off the tags that are at lower left of the dryer door port and center below the washer lid?  Pics aren't necessary, just the text of the serial numbers.

Ooops.  Looking at the pics, missed some of the post-text.

Washer = 1986, 18th week.

Dryer = 1986, 7th week.

Sheet just got real...

tilted my first cabinet. The cool water went out on the Whirlpool and a YouTube vid
convinced me it was the water control/inlet valve. We have very hard water here so
I was certain it would be plugged dice! So I dove in and opened it up. $35 later I had
A replacement unit ready to install. First I cleaned up 28 years of detritus and build up
and in went the new part. Tilting the cabinet back was a bit of a swear fest but I eventually
got it right.
That was yesterday so to day I thought to get into the dryer and have a look see.
Youtube informed me once more and a putty knife was put to work on those ridiculous-
Godforsaken clips they choose to use to hold the top on. Nothing exciting so after
a good vacuuming I was done. Or so I thought, as the video warned I might i dropped a screw
down the lint screen void. Pulled the back of the dryer in hopes of finding it but decided to simply
replace it and not risk screwing up anything else.
