OK, so I had no luck finding any information on the WSXH208A. I knew this problem was possibly related to a clogged filter because of the responses related to other machines, but where the heck is the filter on this model...not easily found. Finally, after some persistence, I found it. The filter is inside the black rubber piece that attaches the drum to the pump. It is a small clear plastice piece with holes in it located inside the black rubber piece. Detach the black rubber piece from it's 3 connections...1 to the bottom of the drum (unscrew the tightening screw at the top metal wire to loosen the connection), 1 connection to the pump and one other connection coming from the top somewher (both of these are connected with press-grip clasp type things). Take the entire black rubber piece out (make sure to have plenty of towels layed out and a pan to catch the water if you can. My pan didn't catch much, but the towels soaked it up anyway. Pull the filter out from inside the black rubber piece once disconnected. I actually had a dollar bill wrapped around the inside of my filter, completely blocking it. Once the filter is cleared, put everything back together. Make sure all connections are on tight to prevent any leaks. Hope this works for you...I was happy to fix it myself and avoid the costly repair-man!

SOURCE: have a whirlpool AWO 3551 washing machine. Door

My daughter had the same problem for about two years. A repair man came out and told her to call the company and tell them she wanted it fixed under a recall. She said the computer board had to be replaced and it was recalled due to a flaw in the machine. The service man came back again after she called, and he fixed it for free.

I think you have a coin or something stuck in the drain pump itself. I have had to remove the pump,and take out the coin, reinstall it and it works perfect.

Door lock will not release..will not work even with pushing the pause button


Hello,

The usual reason the door will not unlock is because all the water has not drained from the washer...the door lock is tied together with the water level components and until the water level level switch is satisfied the wate r has drained,it will not allow the door to unlock. Typically the reason the water hasnt drained fully is because of a blockage in the filter on the pump.
This tip i wrote will tell ya how to clean that filter on the pump.

The door wont open . I have tried to put it on for a cycle and you can here the the water for around 5 seconds then it stops and does nothing.


Check and make sure your pump or filter is not clogged, then next I would suspect you have a faulty door lock mechanism
More common issues with the door lock.
Is water hooked up to the washer?

The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?

If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?

If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?

If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!

Will not spin f-


While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes to try the door. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out

Door locked and will not open. i ran an empty cycle to see if that would work and it doesn't.....thanks! Margit


IF water is left in machine then door wont unlock, check pump, run drain cycle. If pump runs but doesnt remove water, then check filter at bottom (small door on bottom front) water will come out when this is done. If washer is completely empty of water and door locked then you may access lock release tab from bottom or reaching down from top to lock asm. Then check lock
