Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I bought a Whirlpool Washing Machine, Dryer, and Refridgerator from an American base in England. They have a German plug but the lady at the time said I could use them when I return to America. It is now 11 months later and I have returned to America. No one in the area I live in seems to know what I am supposed to do to use these appliances in America. HELP PLEASE!!!!

    Thank you for your assistance. What if it is not the same voltage and where would I find that information?

Assuming the voltage is the same, you can buy "international wall outlet plug adaptors" in most major cities as well as near most major military bases (because service members routinely return with products from overseas). Simply check your phone directory and/or the internet for "international wall outlet plug adaptors". Also, outlets such as Radio Shack and Brookstone often stock such items.

I don't have the answer you are looking for but I will tell you I bought a set of Whirlpool Washer & Dryer 9 yrs ago and they were a nightmare. After replacing the boards in both my dryer once and washing machine 2-3 times, I packed them up and got rid of them. If you will start to look you will see all kinds of lawsuits against Whirlpool. Can't believe they are still in business.

Plug dryer in wall wont start


The most obvious thing to me is that the cord may have been loosened or damaged by the move, or the terminals in the machine may have loosened. Either test the cord on your "new" machine, or replace it with a known "good" cord. Wait a minute....you already have one of those....
Try it, it may be the very thing!

Whirlpool stacker washing machine works dryer doesn't


The problem is probably with the outlet. The washing machine motor is 120 v and the dryer is 220 v. If one pole of the two pole breaker is bad you could end up with the symptoms you have. I have seen this happen before. go to the circuit breaker and push it all the way to off (it may feel like you are crunching something inside...don't worry) then turn it back on and try the dryer. If this doesn't work, unplug the unit and test the outlet with a voltage tester. you should read 220-240 volts across the two slots and 120 volts from each slot to ground. If not, it is time to call an electrician.
