    I have the same problem - cannot wash dark clothes in machine now. Really cheeses me off - there has to be a fix. No sure what amelisdad means by reversing the water to drain out. Is this something the WM is supposed to do automatically - if it is it isn't working and hasn't for a long time.

The Topload whirlpools are designed to take the lint out by reversing the water to drain out.any lint should be drained out.

  • Dianne Aug 26, 2013

    Sorry, I have the same problem and if it's a natural part of the cycle the design is not working. Any other options?

Whirlpool super capacity plus (commercial quality top loader) does not spin on all settings and does not spin fast enough


sounds like you have a worn out clutch. depending on model it could be an easy fix. would need to know model number to know for sure.

I have a Whirlpool Super Capacity Plus washer (Commercial Quality) model 6LSC9245HQ0 and I am getting a lot of lint all over my clothes. Is there a lint filter? If so where is it and how do I clean...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

Good luck!

What would you recommend for a good super capacity top loader washer? My 15 year old Whirlpool just died. Don't really trust electronic controls, reviews of he top loaders are so mixed, I am unsure. Also...


To be honest I really don't trust electronic controls due to the fact that the majority of the repairs i do on front loader machines has to do with the electronic controls. In my opinion top loaders are more reliable. they get the job done. If you were to get a top loader i do recommend whirlpool, even though i agree that the quality is down. I also like the whirlpool cabrio, its a top loader but has electronic controls. it uses less water and soap just like a front loader. Whatever you do decide to purchase, I highly recommend that you purchase the extended warranty. This way if there is ever a problem, you know that you are covered.

Whirlpool 8255e makes ''whirry'' sound when pumping - not spinning


there is probobly something small jammed into the pump
common for that sound would be a underwire for a bra.
is it still draining ok?

Cannot find the model number on my Whirlpool washing machine. It is a top loading machine, with such features as: 4 Load size, 4 Tempature settings, 8 cycles, 4 speed combinations, commercial quality....


If this was a scratch and dent model, model number may have been removed prior to sale. If not, you should find it on the back edge of the washer at the very top as you look over the back of the machine. If you can't find a model number, bring the part(s) you need to a servicer. They may be common parts or there may be some identifying numbers on the parts themselves. Good luck.

WHAT IS THE LOAD CAPCITY SIZE OF WASHER MODEL 110.20702990


On newer, and sometimes a little newer, Whirlpool and Kenmore (Kenmore is made by Whirlpool) considers a few things in determing capacity. Most of the inner baskets are the same size, but they also add in agitator action into the mix. A Kenmore with an auger top agitator would have higher capacity than a Kenmore with just a normal agitator, even though it has the same sized drum. So a super capacity washer would have theoretically less CLEANING CAPACITY than a super capacity plus. The agitator action is actually what determines capacity on these models. So, with that in mind, cubic load should be about the same on both units. Sorry that I had to go into "Bill Nye The Washer Guy" mode, but thats about the only way to describe. Let me know if I can confuse you any more haha. Seriously though, if you need further help or info, write back, and will try to get you some other information. Remember, this theory only works on top load "normal people" washers, not the front loaders.
