How to fix a whirlpool washer


Move the timer on up to the spin cycle and see if it spins. If it doesn't spin and it is a top loader that uses a belt to turn the agitator and the tub for spinning, then more than likely your belt is broken or slipping. If you hear the motor turning and nothing is happening it's likely the belt.

Kenmore washer 80 series does not drain


When your washing machine won't drain, it could be as simple as a kinked hose or as complicated as a faulty impeller on the pump. Here are some steps to help you determine the problem and solution:

1. Pinched hose: Is the drain hose at the back of the washer been flattened or twisted in any area? A pinched hose could prevent the water from draining thoroughly. Gently straighten the hose, and make sure there is sufficient room between the back of the washing machine and the wall to prevent a repeat of the problem.

2. Clogged drain hose or pump: Does the drum spin normally, but the washing machine won't drain the water? Sometimes a piece of clothing, money, fabric or other debris gets into the water between the inner and outer tub. It may then make its way into a drain hose or even into the pump itself. The farther into the machinery a clog goes, the trickier it can be to remove. Call a repair professional for help.

3. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

4. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

5. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

6. Pump failure: Is your washing machine more than 7 years old? Your pump may simply have worn out. Even if it sounds as though it is running, the pump may not be working well enough to draw the water out of the machine. Replacement parts for pumps are generally unavailable. A new pump may be necessary.

Washing machine will not drain


Since you've already checked the pump, hoses and motor, here are some additional issues to look at:

1. Faulty timer: Does your machine fill with water and begin agitating, but the cycle never advances far enough to allow the water to drain? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. Arrange for washing machine repair service.

2. Worn or loose belts: Are clothes still soaked at the end of a wash, even though the washing machine appears to go through the spin and drain cycles? The timer that controls the cycles may be broken. This is a job for the pros.

3. Faulty or jammed internal impeller on pump: When the spin cycle starts, do you hear a humming noise? The internal impeller that moves the water through the drain pump may be faulty or jammed. A grinding or grating sound is almost always an indication of a coin, button or other object colliding with the impeller. Have a washing machine repair expert determine if the impeller is jammed and can be cleared, or if the pump needs to be replaced.

Water fills in, but wash cycle won't start. spin cycle works, changed motor still won't work


Its either in the lid switch or timer. Examine the lid switch. Try starting the wash cycle and press in on lid switch to make sure it activates. If the lid switch is good and you dont hear the motor trying to activate during wash than its in the timer. Does the timer advance? Please comment me back If you need further assistance.

Won't spin, makes clunking noise, drains fine


If it agitates fine , with normal noise , drains with lid closed , then the problem is probably the transmission .

WHDRR418G1WW WASHER WON'T AGITATE OR SPIN, NOT MAKING NOISES. FILLS AND DRAINS FINE.


sounds like you have a broken lid switch on the washer, maybe someone slammed the door or placed or stood on top of the washer, a broken lid switch won't allow washer to go into spin mode is a safety device so if is on spin cycle an someone sticks their hand it the machine stops an not breaks your hand.

broken lid swtich

good luck leave some feedback thanks!

WILLNOT SPIN OR AGGITATE/IT WILL DRAIN


Just because the rubber part of the coupler isn't shreded doesn't mean that the plastic parts are not broke... There are three stems that protrude from the plastic parts of the drive coupler,and mesh with the rubber section of the coupler... the stems may be broke off... If you smell rubber burning then I would say almost 99% of the time it's a bad drive coupler...If the coupler is not broke and the rubber section is alright then you have a bad transmission... Most likely the main drive gear is bad... Since you said that you can spin the tub by hand, indicates that the brake system is alright, and nothing is caught between the inner and outer tubs... You can rule out a lid switch problem, cause the washer would agitate even with a broken lid switch, but it would not spin..since the machine make any kind of different sound when you run it Like a high pitch squeal or grinding noise?
check the lid switch see if it's not broke... wasn't the lid switch, but I got to thinking it will agitate at the first part of the wash cycle, but when it goes into the slower speed wash, if your lid switch is broke, then it won't agitate or spin...

No spin cycle


dear zoofan.lets see hum.....to agaitate the motor goes one direction.to spin useing the same belt it goes the oposing direction.so when spins lid switch completes curcit to motor then it would spin so if click you hear is the motor protector switch [its like a curcit breaker] kicksout that means you lid switch is working. but could the noise be the timer advancing? timer makes clicking noieses also.then that would put into question your lid switch.but you said it starts again after a few minutes.if thats a sure thing then it ,your motor is involved but a possiable is somthing is between the tubs[thats a visiual inspection]sock,any clothing or if had a nail or somthing of that sort going thru small holes in inner tub then jaming or draging on the outer tub that could stop the tub but most of the time the motor would go and would burn the belt.hope i gave you a few clues,God bless ,tom
