'Infinity' as ohms reading for pump means it's broken - there is a break in windings.
You'll need a new pump, I think.

You will want to check the door switch and the thermal fuse on the blower housing to make sure that they are good. The dryer is acting like it has started but if one of these is bad then it will cause the issue you are having.

check if there are little plastic screw hole covers on the non-hinge side of the door. If there are, then simply unscrew the hinge, remove the plastic covers, and swap it to the other side!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I would still recommend starting by adjusting its balance by my method; seems to work for most people ;-0)

It is necessary to ensure absolutely that the machine has all 4 feet very firmly on the floor, and I mean firmly!
Doesn't matter whether it is empty or not but switch it off then-
very firmly push one front corner diagonally into the centre of the machine and see if the machine moves or rocks AT ALL, even the slightest. If it does you will need the open-ended spanner which came with the (new) machine........which of course went missing a long time ago?!! An adjustable spanner will suffice.
Adjust the foot under that corner downwards until it is very firmly- almost pushing- against the floor but not so far that the corner lifts up!
If this corner did not rock do the same to the other.
Once you cannot rock the machine the slightest little bit, screw the locking nuts up tight to the underside of the machine so that they will not move. Ideally the rear feet should also be locked.

(If this has not cured the problem it is possible that the internal suspension is malfunctioning.)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @17:06 Sat afternoon- nothing on TV!

These are what would be referred to as the paddles. I've not heard of this happening before- but I've only been on this site a short while.
I don't really think there is anything that you can do except for calling out an engineer, preferably one who knows the particular Whirlpool machine- or at least Whirlpool machines in general. Also ask neighbours if they can recommend an engineer.
I would imagine that the drum will have to be removed and new paddles fitted (more permanently!) but that is a guess.
Sorry I cannot help any more.

Best of luck,

John C

when the bowl is empty check that the drum is not loose that is the inner and outer concentric drums bist be solid in relation to each other. the whole unit will move around though If the inner is loose then you cant use the washer until the bearings and spider are renewed cheers www.appliances.cjb.net

I had a similar problem with my 9200, after looking up the fault codes, I found the f02 code can be triggered by low or insufficient water supply. After disconnecting and cleaning the inlet screens on the supply lines, have not had the problem since. Unfortunately since then, the spindle broke and destroyed the plastic tub, so we moved up to a Samsung and like it much better.

Unfortunately, the repairman is probably correct. If the rear tub bearing goes bad on these washers, or if one of the spin basket drum supports breaks, it usually requires the replacement of the internal spin basket. One simple test you can do yourself is to open the washer door and place your hand inside the drum at the 12 o'clock (top) position. Push straight up and release. If there is any play in the drum, this usually means one of the rear spin basket supports has broken, or the rear bearing is bad. Unfortunately, the only way to make this determination is to take the washer part and remove the outer drum shells. If the spin basket supports are intact, the drum bearing is molded into the rear drum shell. The bearing usually is not removable, which requires the replacement of the entire back shell. This is a maintenance intensive repair that usually takes a trained technician about 2 hours to complete. Even if you attempt the repair on your own, the spin basket alone costs over $300. The rear tub shell (with the bearing) is about $345. You may try contacting the manufacturer to see if there is a warranty on the spn basket. You can use the following link to see what warranty informaiton may be available on your appliance:


It has been my experience that overloading the washer can contribute to the premature failure of the bearing and drum supports, however, there have been some cases where the spin basket supports prematurely failed due to poor welds or corrosion. These washers are usually very reliable and should last many years with proper care.

I do not necessarily agree with the repairman's assessment on the drain pump, however. If the drum slipped off the support mount springs while running, the washer would not have completed the cycle and would have shut down. This would have left any water that was already in the tub unable to be drained. If the tech performed a diagnostic test AFTER the drum was put back in place and the water still would not drain, there should have been an error code present on the front panel display of either "F02, F21, or "SUD".

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know.

Unplug the machine for 5 min and re-plug it in . If the lock light is still on after pressing the cancel button twice and the door is unlocked you have either a bad door lock assembly or CCU . If the door is still locked you can manually unlock it by removing the bottom front panel and reach up the right side till you feel a tab hanging fro the lock mechanism. Gently pull and the door should unlock. It could still be either of the above mentioned parts.

Press and hold the End of Cycle button for 3 seconds or until the Control Locked indicator turns off. Unplug the machine for at least 30 minutes to forcibly reset the control and to eliminate the possibility of an electronic glitch if the End of Cycle button does not unlock it. Replace the control if unplugging and the End of Cycle button fail to unlock the control.
