Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

Open Question

My mother has an AWO/D4305 front loading washing machine which has a problem with low water intake. She always has to add 3-5 jugs of water when she starts the machine and up to 12 jugs for the rinse cycle. If she does not add this water then the clothes come out stiff with soap residue. The machine is made to only take in water from the cold pipe. An engineer has visited her twice and changed "a switch" once. An engineer is due to visit again at the beginning of Oct to see why/if the problem is continuing. As far as she is concerned the problem is still continuing as she still has to add the water -- not quite what you expect from an "automatic" washing machine! Any clues as to what she can do, or say to the engineer, to ensure that the problem which is now 6 months old can be rectified? Many thanks.

SOURCE: Whirlpool AWO/D4305 Washing Machine. The "Water

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Providing that the tap is turned fully on AND the hoses are not kinked or squashed at the back, this is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
Sorry but it needs a service call ;-0(
Good luck,
John C

Whirlpool AWO/D 4605 Clean Pump light on, how do I


Remove bottom plastic panel across the front of machine- it just clips off (use a small screwdriver or bread knife to prise off). You will now see a round filter behind this panel- unscrew anticlockwise to remove- this is the filter. Sometimes filter can be hard to remove if you have things jammed in it- give it bit of a jiggle and it should come out without forcing it. Remember- if there is still water in the machine, this water will come out on the floor once you remove the filter- put down some towels!! Happy fixing!!

MILDEW SMELL COMES FROM WASHER


. Set the washing machine on the highest water level, temperature on hot and the wash cycle to normal.
2. Fill a gallon jug with hot tap water. Once the cycle begins, let it run for a minute or two, then stop the cycle, open the lid and slowly add the gallon of hot tap water. Don't overfill — you just want to raise the water level so that it is able to reach and clean the inside top rim.
3. Add 2 to 4 cups of household chlorine bleach and restart the cycle. In a couple of minutes, stop it again and just let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Afterward, let the cycle finish, and open the lid to air out the inside.

WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE AWO/D 5716 - CANNOT LOCATE PUMP


Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

Whirlpool awo 3761/5/s


have you checked that there is not a blockage in the outlet pipe or that it is not kinked?sometimes if the pipe is lying to low (ie creating a u-bend) this can prevent water getting in & out & so the machine interprets it as either taps off or the pump needs cleaned (this has happened to me numerous times :) )

hiya
it could be something thats been stuck in the pump filter, usually on whirlpools these are located at the front of the machine behind the plastic kick plate on the bottom. you may need a couple of towels or old rags as there will be some water comes out of the filter when you remove it.
