Spanner symbol fault - No conditioner wash

I'm trying to resolve a problem with our Whirlpool AWG329 washer/dryer. You can start any wash programme ie. select a number. The machine fills with water, heats up no problem and starts washing. The machine then does not accept a conditioner wash when it moves onto (5), the drum is still full of water, i then have to discharge the water. The programme selector turns to the spanner symbol. The manual indicates a technical fault with the motor or temperature sensor, I suspect it may be some thing else. I have cleaned out the dispenser tray and drain pump with no signs or items obstucting the impler. For some reason the machine will not continue to a condition wash. Any feedback from the site forum would be appreciated

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

your washers drain hose is too far down the drain pipe which is causing a siphoning action pull the washers drain hose out pipe some you should be able to hear water dropping into the pipe the reason it only happens in the rinse cycle is because the water from wash is being drained and before the water vacuum is broken the rinse water comes in causing it to keep draining

SOURCE: Spanner nut removel

Hi, The proper tool is P# TB123A.
You can also use a coal chissle and a hammer. Be careful that part of the spanner nut doesn't break off and hit you with the chissel. It takes a preety solid hit to losen the nut.
Hope this helps. If it does, please rate my comments and how I did in helping you. You can order the wrench as well as any other parts on my web site

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!

I personally have not been quite that deep into mine. But according to the manual page 40 the nut is a righty tighty lefty loosey nut. I have one of these washers sitting outside right now waiting for me to do the same repair. Here is the repair manual: SEE PAGE 40

How do i start the dryer on whirlpool awg 349/3 1200

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Methinks you need a manual for now AND for the future!
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

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

Why wont my machine start drying?

I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!
